Sergio Garcia is still under a microscope after he destroyed several greens during the Saudi International and then threw a tantrum in a bunker.

This week, at the WGC-Dell Match Play, Garcia made it through group play and to the elimination rounds where he was facing Matt Kuchar and lost his cool once again.

On the par-4 eighth hole, Garcia swung his club angrily after missing a putt that would have tied the hole.

This all started after Garcia lost the seventh hole when he missed his first putt and then got upset and continued putting and picked his ball up before holing out. Kuchar told a rules official that he had planned on conceding the hole to Garcia, but because Garcia picked up his ball Kuchar was awarded the hole.

Kuchar currently leads three up thru nine holes.

The two appeared to be jawing at each other and still discussing the ruling down the next fairway when this was solely Garcia’s fault.

Even though Garcia didn’t damage a green this time, it still shows that he has a lot to work on in terms of handling his temper. Who knows how long it’ll be before he starts slamming his club down into the greens.
