During Day 2 of the Dell Match Play Championship, Sergio Garcia wowed us with his ability to hit driver off the deck.

During Day 3 of the Dell Match Play Championship, Sergio Garcia wowed us with the driver again, but not in a good way.

As heavy rain started to come down in Austin, Garcia went to take his tee shot on the par-4 13th hole. Wet grips are never a good thing, and Sergio's hand slipped off the club during the swing leading to a drive that many of us can relate to under perfectly dry conditions.

 

 

The ball didn't get very far off the ground and went straight left into the water. Garcia ended up losing his match to fellow Spaniard Jon Rahm 6&4 and will have plenty of time to dry off the clubs this weekend as Rahm advanced to the knockout stage.
