Sergio Garcia reaches to pick up his ball after he missed his second putt on No. 7 during quarterfinal play against Matt Kuchar at the Dell Technologies Match Play Championship golf tournament, Saturday, March 30, 2019, in Austin, Texas. Garcia had an 8-foot putt to win the hole and left it 4 inches short, a frustrating miss. Worse yet was what followed. Such a tap-in typically is conceded in the Dell Technologies Match Play, and the Spaniard walked up and casually rapped it left-handed. The ball spun around the cup, and he picked it up and walked off the green, assuming he remained 1 down through seven holes. One problem: Matt Kuchar never formally conceded the putt.
