Hateful lowlight: His racist comments towards Tiger Woods before the U.S. Open.

Tiger Woods may not have many friends left in the sporting world, but when racist comments get hurled his way, it's not okay. At a European Tour players' dinner, Sergio Garica responded to his spat with Woods during the 2013 Players Championship. He offered an olive branch, albeit a racist one: "We'll have him 'round every night. We will serve fried chicken." He was taunted by crowds throughout the U.S. Open, and quickly played himself out of the tournament by shooting a +6 on the 15th hole of the first day. Good riddance.
