Sergio Garcia’s wayward tee shot during the fourth round of the BridgeStone Invitational may have been “the most expensive tee shot of all-time.” The shot all but destroyed a poor woman’s wedding ring and sent the diamond into the rough. Garcia came over to offer his apologies and a signed ball but the diamond was still lost.
Spectators were on hands and knees looking for the gem and voila, a few minutes later it was recovered.
The moral of the story here? If it’s the final round of a tournament and you’re standing in the rough watching Sergio Garcia, you’re going to get hit.
