Sergio Garcia Disappointed Luke Donald Not on Ryder Cup Team

Whenever Sergio Garcia played well at the Ryder Cup, it was usually alongside partner Luke Donald. Following Tuesday’s captain picks, however, Garcia will need to find that connection with someone else this year.

WATCH: Chick Walks Away With Luke Donald’s Ball, Gets Caught

Well, I guess this girl didn't get the memo that it’s golf and not baseball where a fan keeps a home run. If a player hits a shot and if it goes near the fans then the fans must make room for the player to hit their next shot. Instead, this fan decides to take the ball and walk away but then returns once an official spots her in the act. At least she was a good sport about...
