Sergio Garcia Heckled: Fan Yells 'Fried Chicken' During U.S. Open (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Sergio Garcia is not exactly the most popular guy at the U.S. Open.

Fans heckled Garcia on Saturday as he prepared to open his third round of the 2013 U.S. Open at Merion Golf Club outside of Philadelphia. One fan in the gallery on the 11th tee can be heard yelling out "fried chicken," a reference to the 33-year-old Spaniard's offensive jab at Tiger Woods last month. Another spectator chimes in with "don't choke."


After dealing with similar outbursts and a smattering of boos in the opening round of the U.S. Open, Garcia attempted to downplay the negativity of the attention he received.

“It was good for the most part,” Garcia said on Friday, via Golfweek.

Garcia's outing didn't get much better on Saturday after he left the 11th tee. He carded an astounding 10 on the par-4 15th hole.
