Former Australian Tour golfer Brett Ogle has described Masters champion Sergio Garcia as "a bit of a wally" after the Spaniard claimed his first major at the weekend.

Speaking in Australia on Big Sports Breakfast, Ogle said: There was a bit of controversy around this. You can go back to the 13th where he drove it left into the bush and took an unplayable lie.

"Once again a camera got a close-up of when he took the drop and he was moving a few pine needles and the ball moved just ever so slightly. If you have a look at it you can see the ball move just a little bit.

"Phone calls into the Augusta National people and they had a look at it and said the ball didn't move. But if you take a look at it you can clearly see the ball move a tiny little bit so there's a bit of controversy around it."

Speaking about Garcia as a person, the Australian said: "I think he's a little bit over the top and a bit of a wally. I just found him up himself. He comes across a lot nicer than what he is in real life.

"He's alright with the other players but when the public wants a bit of him he tends to brush them sideways. I've seen that happen on numerous occasions. I don't like that, I don't like that a lot," he added.
