Sergio Garcia says all who withdrew must have been on drugs

Sergio Garcia is enjoying his time in Rio, so much so that he came to a conclusion on why anyone would have withdrawn from the Olympics.

That’s a bold statement and I can’t help but think this is a direct jab towards Rory. In an interview, Rory McIlroy stated, “I’m very happy with the decision I made. I have no regrets. I’ll probably watch the Olympics. But I’m not sure golf will be one of the events I watch.” Basically saying that they don’t matter, and Sergio is saying that they clearly do.

To pass up an opportunity like the Olympics, no matter the reason, is a shame. Obviously not all who withdrew were on drugs but the fact that Serg brings it up all makes you wonder if the testing had anything to do with the top golfers bowing out.

I think he just wants everyone to know that they are crazy for not being there and they must have been not in their right mind to do so.

Sergio is currently tied for 22nd place with a -2 and one more day to go. Even though he’s not on top of the leaderboard, he is clearly having a great time becoming a part of golf and Olympic history.
