Sergio: Don't blame me

June 02, 2009

Sergio Garcia's tendency to deflect blame for his game's shortfalls has made him more than just a target for criticism. It has made him a laughingstock.

Derek Lawrenson of the Daily Mail ridiculed Garcia for his latest excuse for playing poorly, that it was the result of having been jilted by Greg Norman's daughter Morgan-Leigh.

"Who will Sergio blame next?" Lawrenson writes. "Given the 29-year-old has been mercilessly ridiculed around the world for his latest toe-curling ode to self-pity that made him sound like a pimply boy of 15, the odds-on favourite must be the media."
