Garcia Quits Pro-Am in Dispute

Sergio Garcia walked out of a pro-am about halfway through at the Volvo Masters, blaming a partner's abusive manners.
Spanish businessman Luis Somoza, a 14-handicapper, asked Garcia the yardage to the flag on the ninth hole and Garcia answered, '150 meters.' Somoza reportedly said it was 115 meters. He came up short of the hole and blamed Garcia for giving him the wrong yardage.
Garcia said the man threatened to hit him.
