Former Masters champ Sergio Garcia left red-faced with embarrassing triple bogey

2017 Masters Champion Sergio Garcia was left red-faced during his second round at Augusta on Friday after carding an embarrassing triple bogey on the par-four 11th. After pushing his approach shot right of the green, Garcia was left with a chip for birdie.

The Spaniard looked to bump and run his effort towards the 11th pin, however it is fair to say that things didn’t go to plan. His effort raced past the hole, off the green and down the bank before finding the water hazard on the other side of the putting service.

Garcia was then required to head over to the drop zone where he played his fifth shot onto the green. A routine two-putt followed for the former champion, however the damage had already been done as he trudged over to the 12th tee.

His triple bogey left him on the cusp of the cut line, as it pushed him out to four-over for the tournament. He then looked to hit back though, as he neatly worked his way around the par-five 13th to secure a par.

At the time of writing players sitting at five-under or more fall just on the wrong side of the cut line, and some of the games biggest names find themselves in this dreaded group. English star Justin Rose finds himself at the wrong end of the leaderboard, as did big-hitting American Bryson DeChambeau.

One man who also looks like his week is over is Olympic champion Xander Schauffele. The American carded a two-over-par 74 on Thursday, however a difficult Friday has seen him fall even further behind and below the cut line.
