Sergio Garcia is one of the more-emotional players in the golf world.

While that’s not always a bad thing, the 39-year-old has lost his temper multiple times on TOUR — most notably this year at the Saudi International, where he was disqualified after damaging multiple greens and slamming his club repeatedly in a bunker.

He had even more trouble on Saturday in Austin, Texas, at the World Golf Championships-Dell Technologies Match Play.

Despite a late rally, it was Matt Kuchar who edged out the match 2 UP to beat Garcia and advance to the semifinals.

Jumping the gun on No. 7

The first notable incident came on the No. 7 green, when Garcia was attempting to make a par putt to win the hole — which would have brought him back within one.

Garcia’s initial putt went just left. The miss didn’t matter, however, as Kuchar attempted to concede the hole to Garcia anyway. After all, it was just a tap-in putt — a routine make for players on Tour.

Garcia, though, clearly angry at himself for missing the putt, rushed to tap it in and missed.

Because Garcia missed the gimme putt before Kuchar was able to officially concede the hole, Kuchar officially won the hole — jumping to 2 up in the match.

Even though Kuchar wanted to concede the hole, the rules official at the hole said it wasn’t possible after Garcia’s failed putt.

More trouble on No. 8

Garcia ran into more trouble on the very next green green, where he missed a putt to tie the hole.

The putt was just off the mark, sailing slightly left, which give Kuchar the win. After the miss, Garcia walked up to the ball and took a full swing with his putter at it out of frustration. While he was never going to actually make contact with the ball, it’s still not a good look — and would have definitely caused damage if he did hit the ball.

Sergio’s late run falls short

After falling to 3 Down after nine holes, Garcia and Kuchar got into it briefly in the middle of the No. 10 fairway — apparently still angry about the incident on the No. 7 green.

That argument apparently fueled Garcia, though, who quickly rallied after that point. The 10-time Tour winner stuck his approach close and made birdie to cut the deficit to just two.

After halving No. 11, the pair alternated the next four holes. Then a second birdie on No. 16 with a solid putt for Garcia cut Kuchar’s lead to just one with two holes left.

Kuchar, though, held on in the final two holes to win the match 2 UP and reach the semifinals.

Kuchar will take on Lucas Bjerregaard — who knocked off Tiger Woods on Saturday — in the semifinals of the tournament on Sunday. Francesco Molinari and Kevin Kisner are set to square off in the other semifinal match in Austin.
