Sergio sinks putt with 3-wood after destroying flat stick

Forced to use his 3-wood as a putter after an angry outburst, Sergio Garcia showed some impressive skill with the makeshift flat stick.

 

Garcia slammed and broke his putter after leaving an eagle putt woefully short on the 4th hole at the Dell Technologies Championship on Sunday.

On his next shot though, the 2017 Masters champion incredibly managed to sink a 14-foot putt with his fairway wood.

There was only so much magic in the 3-wood, however, as Garcia’s third-round rapidly went south.

The Spaniard bogeyed four of his next five holes.

At some point, he opted to use his driver instead of the 3-wood on the greens and missed a bunny with the big stick.

Luckily for Garcia and the people of Houston, Garcia was able to hole a few putts as he's giving $2,000 per birdie to victims of Hurricane Harvey.

So far he's made 11.



Going into Monday's final round the Spaniard sits at two over for the tournament, a whopping 14-strokes off the lead.

Australian Marc Leishman shares the lead but he will face some formidable challengers in the final round of the US PGA Tour's second playoffs event.

Leishman continued his finest US tour season by shooting an unblemished six-under-par 65 third round at TPC Boston to be tied in front with latest major champion Justin Thomas (63) at 12-under.

A win would put the big Victorian right in the hunt for the FedEx Cup and its $US10 million bonus that goes to the winner of the season-long points race after the fourth and final playoffs event, the 30-man Tour Championship.

However, lining to battle Leishman for the title in Boston along with Thomas are Englishman Paul Casey, who is one shot back and one clear of a group including world No.2 Jordan Spieth, with world No.1 Dustin Johnson and No.5 John Rahm a further stroke away.

Fellow Australian Jason Day improved only slightly on Sunday with a 70 to be tied 44th at one over.
