Tom Weiskopf on Sergio Garcia’s Masters meltdown: ‘He gambled and lost’


SportsPulse: Nancy Armour and Steve DiMeglio discuss the early story lines emerging at Augusta National, where Jordan Spieth leads after the first round.

Tom Weiskopf said he was listening to the radio broadcast of the Masters while driving home from a doctor’s appointment Thursday when Sergio Garcia made a 13 on hole No. 15.

“He gambled and lost,’’ Weiskopf said. “Augusta won.’’

Few know the feeling like Weiskopf does. Very few.

With his 13, Garcia joined Weiskopf and Tommy Nakajima as co-owners of the record for highest single-hole score recorded at the Masters. Asked what he would say if he bumped into Garcia, Weiskopf, 75, chuckled and replied, “What, you didn’t get the memo?’’

The gist of the memo: play things smart. Certainly smarter than Weiskopf played things in 1980, when he shot a 13 on hole No. 12, which took place two years after Nakajima made a 13 on hole No.
