We're into the second round of the 2018 Masters Tournament. However, we can't stop talking about what happened to Sergio Garcia during his first round. The 2017 Masters champ finished the day with a 9-over, 81. Moist of the trouble came on one hole, when Sergio put five (FIVE) balls into the water on hole No. 15. Garcia carded a 13 on the par-5, ballooning his score.

After his struggle on the hole, a Golf Channel analyst made a joke about the Garcia's naming their future children about the hole.

The joke came after Sergio and his wife Angela named their baby girl after another hole at the Masters, No. 13: Azalea. Angela didn't take it very well.

Clearly, Rich Lerner intended his comment to be taken as a joke and didn't mean any offense. He even apologized for the comments.

Lerner wasn't the only one to make a joke at Sergio's expense.

Garcia tees off this afternoon at 1:38 p.m. ET.
