Cue up the “diamond in the rough” jokes. During the final day of play at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, Sergio Garcia literally knocked the diamond off a woman’s ring and into the rough.
The bizarre event took place on Garcia’s tee shot from hole No. 3. The diamond was eventually found, but if it hadn’t been, the Spaniard was prepared to front the replacement cash. He asked for her contact information after helping look for the rock.
Garcia’s playing partner for the day, Rory McIlroy, probably could have helped him out if the diamond didn’t turn up.
