And now he has refused to back down from his comments in a column for a magazine.

Alliss writes in Atlantic Golf & Lifestyle that Akins’ skirt was more suited to ice skating than a golf course.

She was seen at Royal Birkdale this week wearing a skirt similar to the one that initially caught Alliss’ attention at Augusta.

Garcia will marry American Akins – a former Golf Channel reporter – next weekend.

And Alliss wrote: “I came home to a barrage of emails, several of them very rude, castigating me for being so sexist – fancy remarking that Sergio Garcia’s fiancee had the shortest skirt on the campus.

“Well, she did, that’s a fact.

“Many, I’m sure, would have thought it was inappropriate to wear such a skirt on a golf course.

“They perhaps would favour a crinoline or at least a ball gown, but that’s not for me to worry about.

“Anyway, she had lovely legs and was very pretty, but the skirt was more suited to an ice-skating show than the 18th green at Augusta. But, hey ho, life goes on.”
