Monty says Garcia controversy has gone too far
VIRGINIA WATER, England — Recent World Golf Hall of Fame inductee Colin Montgomerie has described the Sergio Garcia “fried chicken” controversy as “making a mountain out of a molehill.”
The Scottish player’s response to the controversy that drew European Tour chief executive George O’Grady into having to make a second apology, was to defend O’Grady and “feel” for Garcia after making the cut in the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth.
“It’s a mountain out of a molehill, to be honest,” Montgomerie said. “Totally. I hope it hasn’t taken away from the BMW who have set up a fantastic tournament.”
Now we’ve got the chief executive involved in the whole thing having to say sorry,” Montgomerie added.
