Sergio Garcia will face no further punishment from the European Tour following his remarkable disqualification from last week's Saudi International. 

Garcia - the 2017 Masters champion - was disqualified for committing "serious misconduct" after he damaged more than one green in frustration while shooting a one-over 71 in the third round. 

The Spaniard apologised for his actions in a statement, accepting his removal from the event and insisting: "It will never happen again". 

There had been suggestions Garcia could face a further sanction, such as a heavy fine or even a suspension. 

However, when contacted, a European Tour spokesperson said: "I can confirm that no further action will be taken against Sergio Garcia."
