The Guardian recently sat down for an awesome one-on-one with Sergio García about what he's doing, who he hangs with and why he's playing poker for $2 million.
You should read the full article, but here my three favorite parts (I was stunned at how candid García was):
1. Here we are in The Bahamas, surrounded by blue lagoons, luxury yachts, January temperatures in the mid-20s and you're playing poker for $2m. Where did it all go wrong? Ha ha. I was. I was playing poker.

2. On fist bump celebrations. I don't do the potato [mimes the fist bump]. Nah. I'll high five, but that's too American. I'm European.
A clench? Yeah. One of those or a high five, but not a … [Sergio contorts his face to portray maximum disgust as he motions a fist bump.]
3. Who is the most famous person you have in your mobile phone? [Long think] I don't know. Um. I mean, obviously Rafa [Nadal], I have his number. Michael Phelps? I saw him at the Ryder Cup, briefly, but then we saw each other here and we talked.
