Years ago, I watched Sergio Garcia and saw a smug, cocky, somewhat arrogant young man who seemed to be a whiner because he should have been a major champion numerous times over if it weren’t for a guy by the name of Tiger Woods.
Over the years, he’s made snide comments that have gotten him into hot water with the American public golf fan and was never really accepted as one of those competitors you can root for.
What I saw yesterday at Agusta was a golfer who has seemingly grown up….he’s become humbled by the chase for a major and appreciative of the greatness it takes to attain that stature.
I’ll tell you now, what I tweeted yesterday, I never been a huge fan, but props to Sergio Garcia.
While we quietly toil away anonymity, he’s aged for the better right before our very eyes.
