Last week Sergio Garcia apologised, the way this generation do, in an Instagram post for the behaviour which led to his disqualification at the Saudi International. He said
This is all very well but this is just the latest in a long line of abuses directed at golf. He doesnt like lakes, he throws clubs in them, he doesnt like bunkers, he thrashes at them, he spat into a golf hole after calling the ball a sonofabitch ball and then he thwacked at bushes. At this point I object. It’s not like in professional football where players physically tackle and injure each other, but abusing the parts of the golf course which are living things is not on. And there was the time at the World Matchplay at Wentworth when I watched him take off his shoe and hurl it at people in the gallery. This is all pathetic. And if he does anything like this again he should be suspended from the tour.
