Sir Nick Faldo: Sergio Garcia’s the most immature player I’ve witnessed

Sir Nick Faldo has branded Sergio Garcia “the most immature player” he’s ever seen following the Spaniard’s recent comments on Rory McIlroy.

The Northern Irishman has been a standout vocal critic of LIV Golf – the Saudi-backed golf tour which Garcia now plays on.

The 33-year-old’s disapproval of the breakaway circuit has led to a breakdown in the personal relationship between himself and Garcia.

In a recent interview with the Telegraph, Garcia said: “I think it is very said.

“I think that we’ve done so many things together and had so many experiences that for him to throw that away just because I decided to go to a different tour, well, it doesn’t seem very mature; lacking maturity, really.

“But Rory’s got his own life and he makes his own choices, the same way that I make mine. I respect his choices, but it seems like he doesn’t respect the ones I make. So a one-way street.”

However, not everyone’s in agreement with the 2017 Masters Champion with Faldo hitting back.

The six-time Major winner responded on social media insisting Garcia’s level of maturity should be the one in question – not McIlroy’s.

“Now this is rich coming from the most immature player I’ve ever witnessed,” tweeted Faldo.

McIlroy and Garcia are next set to meet at April’s Masters Tournament with the latter qualifying due to being a past winner of the event.
