Former BMW PGA champion BLASTS Sergio Garcia over Wentworth walk out

Former BMW PGA champion Byeong Hun An has blasted Sergio Garcia on Twitter following his controversial walk out from Wentworth this week.

Sergio Garcia was one of a number of LIV Golf Tour rebels who chose to compete in the DP World Tour's flagship event of the season in Surrey.

UPDATE: Sergio Garcia to be FINED if he does not give a valid explanation for his BMW PGA exit

Only the Spaniard carded a 76 on Thursday and then decided to withdraw from the tournament once it had been decided that the event would be a 54-hole tournament.

The event was suspended for a full day on Friday following the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II

The second round then re-started on Saturday morning, but there was no sign of Garcia. 

He had already done a runner. 

Garcia gave no reason for his withdrawal from the tournament, and he was then spotted attending a college football game on Saturday afternoon. 

According to The Telegraph, Garcia will be fined by the DP World Tour should he fail to give "medical evidence deemed reasonable" for his Wentworth withdrawal. 

It's fair to say that did not sit well with many in the golf industry, and especially fellow Tour pros such as 2015 BMW PGA champion and PGA Tour player Byeong Hun An. 

No Laying Up posted a tweet updating the final results of the 17 LIV Golf players in the BMW PGA Championship field. 

An wasted little time in blasting Garcia in reference to the bottom line, which you can read below: 

Garcia has no further entries on the DP World Tour in 2022.

He will tee it up in the fifth event of the LIV Golf Series in Chicago as he has done in the previous four events.

Shane Lowry went on to win the BMW PGA on Sunday with a narrow one-shot victory over Rory McIlroy and Jon Rahm.
