VIDEO: Did a marshal improve Sergio Garcia’s lie in the rough?


Consider it home-field advantage? Sergio Garcia may have been the beneficiary of what you'd hope is an honest mistake made by a Ryder Cup marshal.

Garcia's tee shot on the on the par-4 15th in the afternoon foursomes match against Jimmy Walker and Rickie Fowler landed in the rough to the right. A marshal immediately raises his hand to indicate he has the ball and it's safe. Then he runs toward it and starts to brush grass away from the ball in almost every direction. In the video uploaded by Golf Central Daily, it's unclear if the marshal picks up the ball and moves it.

A commentator on the world feed allude to the improved lie with a chuckle, saying, "The way the man's patting the grass there it may get better by the second."
