Fresh from opening 2018 with victory in the Singapore Open Sergio Garcia arrives in the United Arab Emirates to defend his Dubai Desert Classic title on the Majlis course at Emirates GC.
It's always tempting to expect a great deal of a player coming off a fantastic year, especially one including a first major win, but, as Henrik Stenson discovered, following-up is very difficult. That makes Garcia's five-shot win last week in Singapore intriguing. Whilst true that it wasn't a great field (a decent one though), what shone through was his desire: The weather was poor, disruptions frequent, it would have been easy for his eye to drift from the target, but it never did and this week will be another test of that mindset. He said after his win on Sunday: "I practised a few weeks before coming here. I feel that I’m getting used to my new equipment. Hopefully I can ride on this momentum." Prior to the win last year his record here was a curiosity: Two missed cuts and four times when he contended yet never recorded a top ten. Jan 23 - 7:37 AM

Past champion Sergio Garcia is one of three qualified winners to pass on this week's Sentry Tournament of Champions.

The Spaniard earned his seat with the victory at Augusta National. He won't make the trip to Maui, though. He is one of three DNPs, along with Justin Rose and Henrik Stenson. There was no reason cited, but it's likely due to schedule management. Garcia typically plays at least one event during the European Tour's desert swing which takes place early in the year. Garcia has now qualified for this event eight times but he's opted to skip it each of the last four times. It's not that he dislikes the layout, either, as he won during his 2002 Tournament of Champions debut, here at Kapalua's Plantation Course. The soon-to-be 38-year-old should remain a top-tier fantasy option anytime he pegs it in 2018.

Sergio Garcia crafted a bogey-free 5-under-par 34-33=67 in his first round at the Australian PGA Championship, his strong morning lap at Royal Pines putting him in T3 and just one shot behind end-of-day leaders Adam Bland and Jordan Zunic.

Sergio teed off at the ridiculously early time of 06:10 for his opening 18 but took just two holes to find his first red number, that coming on the par-4 11th after he'd started with par. He also ticked the par-5 15th before adding three more birdies at 3, 6 and 8 coming home. The Masters champion, who is playing in Australia for the first time since 2010, pelted 15 greens in regulation today and took 27 putts. He said later: "I wouldn't say that it was amazing but it was good. The most positive thing for me would be to go a bogey-free round, which I didn't realise until we got done. I feel like mentally I'm not quite as sharp as I was probably a month ago or so. I guess the year is kind of draining a little bit."

Sergio Garcia is looking for the perfect end to 2017 at the UBS Hong Kong Open hosted by Hong Kong Golf Club in Fanling.

This is the first time Garcia has played the tournament and he likes what he sees. "I had a chance to see the golf course this morning and it’s just spectacular," he said. "It’s a really fun test where you have to position your ball accurately as there are some tricky pin positions around the greens." He will also have noted the success of his compatriots here. Jose Maria Olazabal, Jose Manuel Lara (a friend of his who caddied for him earlier this year) and Miguel Angel Jimenez (four times) have won in Fanling. He has ranked fourth and third for Ball Striking in his last two starts and ended last week with a stunning 65. "I started the year with a win (Dubai)," he said. "Maybe I can end that way too."

A final hole bogey cost Sergio Garcia a crack at winning the Race to Dubai; he finished T5 on 17-under 271 after a superb final lap of 7-under-par 30-35=65 in the DP World Tour Championship on the Earth Course at the Jumeirah Golf Estates.

The Spaniard was utterly magnificent for 17 holes of Sunday's play, having started like a rocket from the first tee, circling 1, 2, 3 and 4. Two more par breakers at 7 and 9 allowed him to turn in just 30 swings yet still the win seemed far off. However birdies at 12 and 15 (the latter due to a supreme 50-yard sand trap up-and-down) got him to 18-under whilst the leaders, particularly Justin Rose, began to slip. A par breaker on the final hole was his aim, but he dragged his tee shot into trees and the hack out found water. In the end he needed a scramble just to make bogey and will rue the fact that a four would have equalled the winner Jon Rahm's total. Moreover had claimed won a play-off, given Tommy Fleetwood's T21 finish, he would have nipped in to win the Race to Dubai. His green jacket will provide comfort.

Sergio Garcia already has a win in the United Arab Emirates this season and he'll look for another when he lines up in this week's season-ending DP World Tour Championship in Dubai.

There is plenty to recommend the Spaniard to gamers this week. That victory in February's Dubai Desert Classic paved the way for his breakthough first major win at The Masters. He was also the 36-hole leader in this event last year and won the Andalucia Valderrama Masters on his last start. In addition, Sergio still has a theoretical chance of winning the Race to Dubai although needs a helping hand from Tommy Fleetwood and Justin Rose. However, he admits that this week's layout isn't his favourite course and he's still never bettered the T7 he managed on debut in 2009 despite never finishing worse than T21 at Jumeirah Golf Estates. One extra imponderable is that he's playing with new Callaway equipment this week and will he trust it in tournament conditions despite feeling happy with what he's seen in practice?

Sergio Garcia withstood a late Joost Luiten charge to complete victory in the Andalucia Valderrama Masters with a final round of 4-under-par 33-34=67 for a 12-under total of 272, just one swing clear of the Dutchman at Real Club Valderrama.

With their playing partner Daniel Brooks understandably focussing on his playing rights for 2018, Garcia (the pre-round leader) and Luiten were quickly involved in a head-to-head contest. For most of the day the Spaniard held a narrow advantage, making birdie at four and a genuine move with three ticks in a row at 9 (from the fringe with 3-wood), 10 and 11. But his bogey at 12 and Luiten's red numbers at 13 and 15 drew them level. Luiten blinked with a three-putt bogey at 16 before both men finished birdie-par, Garcia showing a delicate touch to confirm the former after his approach at the par-5 17th went over the back. Garcia duly completed his second win within the cork trees of Valderrama, his sixth on home soil, his 14th on the European Tour, 32nd around the world, third of 2017 and first since he slipped his arms inside the green jacket in April.

Sergio Garcia forced his way into a one shot 54-hole lead of the Andalucia Valderrama Masters with a third round of 3-under-par 34-34=68 to total 8-under 205.

The Spanish host of the tournament said ahead of this week that Real Club Valderrama is his favorite course and he is proving as much as he seeks a second victory among its tight, tree-lined fairways. It was far from plain-sailing on Saturday, but it rarely is on the testing track. Crucially, however, he made more red than blue on moving day. He opened with a brace of birdies at 2 and 3 before giving them back with a bogey-double at 5 and 6. Three ticks at 8, 11 and 14 were unanswered until he dropped a shot at No. 15, but he cleaned that up with a birdie-4 at the 17th. He leads Daniel Brooks (who shot 64) by one and Joost Luiten by two. His main concern for the final day might be that he has gone sub-70 just twice in 12 previous Sunday laps at the course, although when he has they have been fine efforts (64 in 2000 and 67 last year). It is his eighth solo 54-hole lead on the European Tour and he is currently 6-for-7.

Sergio Garcia had to settle for an even-par 34-37=71 in his second round at the Andalucia Valderrama Masters but he'll go into the final 36 holes just one off leader Joost Luiten after posting 5-under 137 at the halfway mark.

The tournament host has had much better days on what he calls his favorite track in the world but his opening 67 gave him breathing space and conditions were harder for him in the afternoon session today. He took his score to 6-under at the turn following birdies at 4 and 9 against a bogey at 8 for the second day running but then hit a sticky patch with five pars along with dropped shots at 12 and 16, the latter after a three-putt. Two big blows to the par-5 17th set up a bounceback birdie and Garcia escaped from sand at the last to stay in the thick of contention. Given his course record of 10 top 10s, he's the man to beat going into the final 36 holes although he revealed later that he'd aggravated a wrist injury and needs to manage it with anti-inflammatories.

Tournament host Sergio Garcia birdied all four par 3s in a 5-under-par 32-34=66 in round one of the Andalucia Valderrama Masters, good enough for a piece of the clubhouse lead with Joost Luiten after the morning session. UPDATE Garcia ended the day T1, a shot clear of Robert Rock and Pablo Larrazabal.

Garcia set the tone with an opening circle and then put his first pair of 2s on the card with gains at 12 and 15. Another birdie at 18 secured the local hero an outward 32 before he swallowed his first bogey of the day at the par 71's opening hole. The Spaniard responded by ticking the par-3 3rd and par-5 4th and completed his set of deuces at the 149-yard 6th. That took him to six-under but a dropped shot at 17 put him back into a tie with Luiten, who had posted his 66 in the previous group. The pair have a one-shot lead over Robert Rock. Garcia, who hit 14 of 18 greens today, is the ultimate course horse this week after posting 10 top 10s in his previous 11 appearances at Valderrama.

Sergio Garcia has plenty on his plate at this week's Andalucia Valderrama Masters but incredible course form at his home venue suggests a title challenge is likely.

In 11 appearances at the course, the Spaniard has 10 top 10s, including a victory in 2011. No wonder he describes it in glowing terms. "This is my favorite golf course ever and it’s the kind of golf course that even though it’s not long, it challenges you," he told europeantour.com. "It’s tight and it’s always asking you to hit good shots, all kinds of shots. They are small greens so your iron play has to be spot on and if you miss the greens it’s tricky. It’s just a great, solid golf course." The tournament is hosted by the Sergio Garcia Foundation and, as well as his off-course activities, he's also trying to close the gap on Tommy Fleetwood. The margin is substantial but second-placed Sergio has the chance to narrow it with Fleetwood sitting this one out. The Masters champion was only T30 in Italy but Valderrama is far more suited to his talents.

Sergio Garcia crafted a bogey-free 4-under-par 32-35=67 in round two of the Italian Open to reach the midpoint on 9-under 133, four shots back from joint-leaders Marcus Fraser and Matt Wallace.

Right now, that's T3 on the live leaderboard with the afternoon wave in play so Sergio is in place to make his first ever start as a pro in Italy a winning one. He made the turn in 3-under after gains at 11, 14 and 17 but his forward move then stalled. Sergio couldn't get off the par train on Golf Club Milano's front nine and signed for eight straight pars before he finally broke the sequence with a walk-off birdie-4 at the 516-yard 9th hole. He's made just one bogey so far this week but will need to keep holing the birdie putts to get his hands on the trophy and secure a 14th European Tour success.

Sergio Garcia breaks new ground this week as he makes his debut in the Italian Open at Golf Club Milano.

However, the Spaniard believes he'll feel at home. Speaking on europeantour.com, the Masters hero said: "I've never played in Italy as a professional so I'm excited about it. I've played here many times as an amateur. I've heard good things about it so I'm very excited to have a nice week here. The weather is very similar to Spain, food is very good like in Spain and even the looks of the towns is similar to where I grew up." Garcia missed the cut on his last European Tour start despite shooting 70-69 at the British Masters but prior to that he'd posted T10 and T12 in the final two FedExCup Playoff events. He starts this week ranked second in the Race to Dubai but trailing leader Tommy Fleetwood by over a million points - 2,799,255 to 3,807,265. With this tournament a Rolex Series event and offering a major $7m purse, Garcia has a good chance to make up ground.

Sergio Garcia shot a bogey-free 1-under-par 34-35=69 in Friday's second round at the British Masters but, with scoring low at Close House, his 36-hole of 1-under 139 saw him miss the cut by a shot.

With only the top 65 and ties making it to the weekend at Newcastle-under-Lyme in England, Garcia's T68 wasn't enough but the frustration will be palpable. Following an opening 70 which featured a double and three bogeys, Garcia eliminated the mistakes today. But he could find just a single birdie on the 1st, his 10th hole of the day and crashed out. Other notables to exit at the midpoint include: 139- Bernd Wiesberger, Bradley Dredge, Thongchai Jaidee ... 140- Nicolas Colsaerts Alvaro Quiros ... 141- Ashun Wu, Ross Fisher ... 142- Russell Knox, Thomas Aiken, Jordan Smith ... 143- Alex Noren (defending champion), Eddie Pepperell ... 145- Scott Hend.

World No. 10 Sergio Garcia styled a 3-under-par 32-35=67 in the final round of the TOUR Championship to conclude on 6-under 274, up six places to T9 with play still in progress. UPDATE: With play completed, Garcia finished T10, six back of champion Xander Schauffele, and 21st in the FedExCup standings.

This was the 37-year-old's sixth appearance in the FedExCup era and possibly a fifth top 10. His best is P2 in 2008 where he was the 54-hole leader by three but closed in 1-over 71, losing to Camilo Villegas. The Masters winner sat out the opener at THE NORTHERN TRUST (no reason given) and posted a T35 at the Dell Tech and T12 last week at the BMW. He's projected to climb four spots to 21st in the FEC standings and has not finished in the top 10 in the standings since a career-best 3rd in 2008. The Spaniard was done in by an opening 73, chasing with 66-68-67. If the top 10 holds, it'll be just his third of the season in 17 starts.
