Sergio Garcia Says Slow Play Warning Made Him ‘Rush’ At Open Qualifying

Sergio Garcia of Spain reacts at the end of his round during Final Qualifying for the Open at The West Lancashire Golf Club on July 2, 2024 in Liverpool, England.

Sergio Garcia narrowly missed out at Open Final Qualifying for the second successive year at West Lancashire Golf Club in England, and he said a slow play warning caused him to rush.

The Spaniard was seen in a viral video on social media talking to rules officials who warned his group of slow play. He said that rushing caused him to make a couple of bogeys and cost him a chance of making it to Royal Troon.

Garcia finished at three-under after rounds of 71 and 70, eventually ending two strokes back of the mark that would have got him into a playoff.
