Sergio Garcia blitzed Valderrama on Sunday to shoot through the field and come up just short of a spectacular comeback victory in the Open de Espana, posting a 4-under-par 32-35=67 for the day and 3-over 287 for the week in finishing solo third.
The home favorite wasted little time setting out his stall on a day of milder wind and softer greens. He pounced with birdies at 3, 4, 8 and 12, and with the leaders struggling an outrageous victory was in his sights. A bogey on 15 seemed to have taken the wind from his sails only for him to make birdie from 30 feet on 16 and then tap in for another birdie on 17 after his eagle putt slipped past the hole. Pushing for one final red number he flew the final green and made bogey. He hit 15 greens in the final round, comfortably an improvement on the difficulties of earlier in the week. His final total was two shots shy of the winner Andrew Johnston's effort. Apr 17 - 10:10 AM

Sergio Garcia heads the betting going into this week's Open de Espana at Valderrama.

That comes as no surprise as Garcia has a magnificent record on the iconic venue he describes as his 'favorite course'. Sergio, who will peg it up with Martin Kaymer and Chris Wood over the first two rounds, won the last European Tour event (2011 Andalucia Masters) it staged and he also has three second places there. Overall, he's finished outside the top 10 just once in 11 starts at Valderrama. The Spaniard fell away at Augusta National last week (T34) but expect him to thrive again on his return to home soil. He has the added responsibility of being tournament host but he fulfilled such a role at the Castello Masters and won that event twice (2008 and 2011) so it shouldn't be seen as any sort of negative.
Apr 13 - 6:50 AM

After a 9-over 81 that featured one birdie, eight bogeys and a double-bogey, Sergio Garcia was the most notable of Masters career-worst showings on Day 3 at Augusta National Golf Club.

Garcia kicked off the third round on Saturday with a double bogey-6 and it never got any better. He was T8 thru 36 holes (69-75) on even-par, and fell 35 spots to T43. This was the Spaniard's worst lap at the Masters in his 61st career round, previously 79 in R3/2006. The last time he coughed-up an 81 on the PGA TOUR was in the final round of the 2009 Shell Houston Open. Other high-profile missteps in R3 include: Kevin Na- 85, worst in his 19th career Masters round (eclipsing 81 in R4/2013), and also a career worst in 1,004 rounds on TOUR. Ian Poulter- 82, worst in his 45th Masters round, supplanting 78 in R4/2008. He's previously shot 82 two other times on TOUR, both in second rounds at Bay Hill in 2005 and 2006.
Apr 10 - 8:53 AM

Sergio Garcia stumbled toward a 3-over-par 37-38=75 in the second round of the 80th Masters, falling back to T11 on the live leaderboard with an even-par 144.

The Spaniard bolted out of the gates with birdies in two of the first three holes. Unfortunately, the birdies were bookended with a couple of bogeys. The real trouble occurred on the par-4 ninth hole where he missed the green short on his approach shot and then lost the battle to a false front (twice), coming up short on his chip shots. He found water on the par-5 13th, swallowing another bogey. Garcia also closed out his rounds with two par-saving misses from inside eight feet, adding two more squares to his card. A very disappointing effort for the Spaniard, but he still remains at T11 with a chance to sneak inside the top 10 by day's end.
Apr 8 - 4:04 PM

Sergio Garcia styled a 3-under-par 37-32=69 during the first round of the 80th Masters in Augusta, Georgia.

The Spaniard looked iffy early on, three-putting at the par-4 third hole for a bogey and following it up with another square at the par-3 fourth after missing the green long. Garcia got one back before making the turn, rolling in a 10-footer on the par-4 ninth hole. The fun really began at the par-5 13th hole as he rattled off a four-hole birdie train, with the length of putts made equaling just 13 feet over that stretch. Garcia sits just three shots off the lead through 18 as he still searches for that coveted first major championship.
Apr 7 - 7:10 PM

Sergio Garcia back-pedaled to a 3-over-par 41-34=75 in the third round of the Shell Houston Open and at 2-over 218 will not have a Sunday tee time.

Garcia made the 36-hole cut on the number (71-72) and was one of 18 golfers at T64 after two rounds had been completed, so a second cut of low 70 and ties was required after 54 holes. He went off No. 10 tee and opened birdie-birdie before retreating one at 13, later circling birdie-3 at 17 to turn 2-under. The 36-year-old played his inward half in 5-over 41, erasing birdie-4 at eight with bogeys on holes 3, 5 and 7 and a triple bogey-8 on the par-5 fourth. Joining the Spaniard on the pine for Sunday are: 218- Steve Marino; Derek Fathauer; 2013 champ D.A. Points; Seung-Yul Noh... 220- J.J. Henry ... 221- Matt Dobyns ... 222- Angel Cabrera ... 224- Matt Every ... 225- Jonas Blixt.
Apr 2 - 6:47 PM

In the first round of the World Golf Championships-Dell Match Play, Sergio Garcia outlasted his good buddy Lee Westwood, going a full 18 holes.

The Spaniard got out to a quick start as Westwood bogeyed the par-4 second hole and conceded the third after splashing his approach shot. Garcia proceeded to give both back and then some, losing four straight holes to sit at 2-down through seven holes. He would nail a nine-footer to birdie the ninth and Westwood would gift him the 10th hole after missing a 3'3" near-gimme at the par 4. Garcia continued the streak, tacking on birdies at the par-3 11th and par-5 12th holes. He never looked back, and ended the day with a 1-up victory.
Mar 23 - 5:15 PM

Sergio Garcia fired a 5-under-par 34-33=67 in the third round of the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship to post 5-under 211, good for a share of the early 54-hole clubhouse lead with Rafa Cabrera-Bello. UPDATE: With play completed for the day, Garcia and Cabrera-Bello's 67s were low laps on Saturday.

Garcia co-lead after 18 and 54 holes, respectively, at PGA National last week, eventually finishing a season-best solo second on four starts. He's teed it up on the Blue Monster in 16 of 17 editions -- missing the 2011 playing -- and three times has finished T3, most recently in 2013. The 36-year-old began in even-par 144 (73-71) and tacked on today's six-birdie one-bogey showing, up 20 places on the live leaderboard to T9. He found just six (of 14) fairways but peppered 15 greens in regulation birdieing all four par 5s and added two more on 13 (from 29'6") and 16 (from 17'2"). His lone bogey was a failed scramble at the par-4 14th.
Mar 5 - 3:30 PM

Overnight co-leader Sergio Garcia patched together a 1-over-par 35-36=71 in the final round of The Honda Classic to post 8-under 272, good for solo second, one shy of champion Adam Scott, and remains winless on TOUR since the 2012 Wyndham Championship.

Garcia co-led with Scott thru 54 holes (65-69-67) and played the third and final rounds with the eventual champ. He opened the finale with a two-putt par, but had to make a six-foot come-backer for a 4. This set the theme early for the Spaniard as he scrambled for pars on two and four --- again with a pair of six-footers -- to turn even and one back of Scott. A two-putt par at 10, his 10th straight par, got him level with Scott who bogeyed but the lack of a par breaker weighed heavy and he squared bogey at 11 (failed scramble) missing his par putt from 47 inches. The 36-year-old finally broke the ice from 6'6" at 14 for a 3 but tensed-up chasing a would-be 10th TOUR victory with back-to-back bogeys on 16 and 17. Garcia settles for his 15th career runner-up in 292 pro starts and sixth in the past three seasons.
Feb 28 - 6:26 PM

Sergio Garcia authored a 3-under-par 31-36=67 on day three of The Honda Classic to post 9-under 201, good for a share of the 54-hole lead with Adam Scott. UDPATE: Garcia is 3-for-12 on TOUR in converting 54-hole leads/co-leads.

Garcia, the 18-hole co-leader, once again finds himself sharing the top spot after chasing 65-67 with today's five-birdie two-bogey effort. Playing in the penultimate twosome with Scott and two adrift of 36-hole leader Rickie Fowler, he opened his scoring with a two-putt birdie at the par-5 third (whiffing his eagle try from 5'3") and went-back-to-back with birdie-3 at four (7'10"). The 36-year-old took the outright lead (on 9-under) with his third straight circle from 9'11" at the par-3 fifth. He saved par at the seventh from 8'11" and from 13'6" at the ninth, sandwiching his fourth birdie at the eighth from 6'4". Garcia played the first eight holes of his inward half in birdie-less 2-over before finally carding another par breaker from 5'8" at the par-5 18th. He totaled 10 (of 14) fairways and for a third straight round, hit 13 greens in regulation.
Feb 27 - 6:00 PM

Overnight co-leader Sergio Garcia signed for a 1-under-par 35-34=69 after today's second round of The Honda Classic to post 6-under 134, down two spots on the live leaderboard and two shy of 36-hole clubhouse leader Rickie Fowler.

Garcia co-lead with 2013 Honda champ Michael Thompson following a first-round 65. It was his 10th 18-hole lead/co-lead on TOUR in his 294th career start as a pro, and he's converted those leads just once (2008 PLAYERS). He began R2 off No. 10 tee and was in a marquee threesome with Fowler and U.S. Ryder Cup Team captain Davis Love III. The 36-year-old, who's never missed a cut here in five previous visits, digressed to eight (of 14) fairways but for a second straight day, pelted 13 greens in regulation. He circled a chip-in birdie at the par-3 17th and despite missing his last three greens turned blemish-free 1-under. The Spaniard three-putted the first from 41'3" for bogey-5 and squared bogey at the par-4 sixth (failed scramble), but erased those with birdie-3 at four (5'9") and a tap-in gimme at the par-3 seventh from two inches.
Feb 26 - 1:02 PM

Sergio Garcia rocketed out to a 5-under-par 31-34=65 in the first round of this week's Honda Classic, grabbing control of the early lead on day one.

The Spaniard arrived fresh off a missed cut at the Northern Trust Open, but wiped the slate clean today. It didn't take long to get on the board, as he holed out from 148 yards for eagle at the par-4 second. His only real trouble of the round came at the par-4 sixth hole when his tee ball trickled into the water. Garcia rolled up his knickers, got a little wet, and blasted back onto the fairway, avoiding the drop but settling for bogey instead of a likely double. He added three more circles before the day was over, with just the single bogey still on his card. This was a very impressive bounce-back effort for Garcia as he searches for his first PGA TOUR victory since the 2012 Wyndham Championship.
Feb 25 - 5:34 PM

Sergio Garcia kicks off his 2016 portion of the PGA TOUR season at this week's Northern Trust Open and is looking for his first win on TOUR since the 2012 Wyndham Championship.

Garcia qualified for the Race to Dubai's season-ending DP World Tour Championship but chose not to play, continuing his spat with the European Tour's Final Series' format. He plays the Northern Trust sporadically as well, teeing it up five times in the last 11 years, but four of those went for top-15 finishes, three for top 10s, including a T4 in last year's edition. The 36-year-old's career scoring average on the par-71 layout (34 rounds) is a steady 69.94. In total, he's making his 10th NTO appearance and just his second start overall in 2016. The Spaniard played one event of the three-event Desert Swing on the Euro Tour posting a T7 at the Qatar Masters where he was a past champ in 2014.

Sergio Garcia moved through the gears with a stunning 6-under-par 31-35=66 at the Commerical Bank Qatar Masters that drew him into the weekend reckoning at 8-under 136.

The 2014 champion (who owns another five top ten finishes in ten previous visits to Doha GC) was at his best in Thursday's second round. He started from the word go, making a birdie-4 on his first hole, the 10th, and adding two more on 14 and 15 before notching an eagle-2 on the short par-4 16th. It took until his penultimate hole, the 8th, to add another par breaker but his 66 leaves him only three shy of the halfway lead, with the wind getting up for the afternoon starters. Garcia was supreme from tee to green, hitting all 18 putting surfaces in regulation.
Jan 28 - 5:02 AM

Sergio Garcia has stayed active during the fall and looks primed for another strong season on the PGA TOUR.

The Spaniard earned a pair of paychecks on the PGA TOUR before taking his talents to the European and Asian Tours. After a disappointing finish to the 2014-15 season in the States, Garcia is back in form with six straight top 25s, internationally. That includes a victory at the Ho Tram Open. Gamers can safely hop back on the train when the PGA TOUR schedule resumes.
