Garcia should grow up - Koepka
Brooks Koepka says Sergio Garcia acted like a child after the Spaniard's outburst at the inaugural Saudi International last week.
Garcia, who broke his major duck at the 2017 Masters, was disqualified from the European Tour event after the third round for what the tour deemed "serious misconduct" under rule 1.2a.
The world number 28 damaged a couple of greens at the Royal Greens Golf and Country Club in an angry outburst, resulting in the groups behind him to make a complaint to the officials.
Garcia has since apologised for his actions but Koepka, who will be looking to win the US Open for the third straight year, has slammed the 39-year-old for what he did.
"That's just Sergio acting like a child," he said in an interview with the Playing Through podcast. "It's unfortunate that he's got to do that and complain. "Everybody's got to play the same golf course. I didn't play very good, but you didn't really see anybody else doing that.
"I mean, you're 40 years old, so you've got to grow up eventually. It's frustrating as a player to see. To act like that, the disrespect to everybody, to act like a child out there is not cool.
"It's not setting a good example and it's not cool to us, showing us no respect."
