A Tale of Two Golfers

 Sergio and Tiger

Sergio Garcia and Tiger Woods couldn’t be more unlike each other in terms of their professional careers.  Early in his career, Sergio looked extremely promising.  He was playing well and putting himself in contention most of the time.  Tiger Woods had already won several tournaments when he and Sergio played together at the 1999 PGA Championship.  Sergio had been known to choke under pressure, while Tiger generally came through in the clutch.  The two fought hard and both played amazing golf, but eventually Tiger came out on top winning the major by only a shot.  This sparked the rivalry between the two, and they’ve definitely had conflict recently.  At the players, Sergio blamed Tiger for his poor performance in the middle of the third round, however he eventually apologized to Tiger for what he said.

At the end of the day though, these two are just competitors.  They aren’t enemies, they just don’t always bring out the best in each other.
