Sergio Garcia faces an anxious wait to see if he's made it through to the weekend at his home Open de España.
After slumping to a 75 in round one at Real Club de Golf El Prat, the Spaniard needed to repair the damage on Friday morning but could only manage an even-par 36-36=72. Right now, he's in T76 and a shot outside the cut line although the tough afternoon conditions might mean those at 3-over 147 still have a chance. A pair of bogey-6s at 10 and 2 damaged his hopes although he at least gave himself a fighting chance with two birdies and four pars in his final six holes. "I tried very hard, but just couldn't get much going," Garcia told reporters afterwards. UPDATE: With the winds getting up, scores ballooned in the afternoon and Garcia got into the weekend with a shot to spare. May 15 - 9:03 AM

Sergio Garcia looked to be suffering a Sawgrass hangover after slumping to a 3-over-par 38-37=75 on day one of his home Open de España.

Garcia lost out to Rickie Fowler after a three-hole playoff on Sunday but today showed none of the spark that got him so close to victory at THE PLAYERS. Going out in the tougher afternoon conditions, the Spaniard bogeyed the third and fourth and wiped out a birdie at the sixth with another dropped shot at the ninth. His day took a final turn for the worse when he carded a walk-off bogey at 18 to slip a full 10 shots behind leader Trevor Fisher, Jr. He drove the ball okay, hitting 10 (of 14) fairways, but found just nine greens in regulation and was only 3-for-9 in scrambling.

After losing a playoff at THE PLAYERS, Sergio returns home to contest this week's Open de España.

The tournament, which moves around Spain, is staged this year at Real Club de Golf El Prat and was the scene of his first professional event in 1999. However, his T25 came on the old layout and this week he'll tee it up for the first time on the new Greg Norman design. That course staged the 2011 event but it was held during a period between 2004 and 2012 when Sergio chose not to play his national Open. Garcia, who won the tournament in 2002, returned to the Open de España in 2013 (T25) and also took part last year (T12). He won twice on Spanish soil in 2011 so can get it done in front of his home fans when he'll inevitably be the centre of attention.

Sergio Garcia twirled a 4-under-par 33-35=68 in today's dramatic final round at THE PLAYERS to post 12-under 276, and then was eliminated following a three-man, three-hole aggregate playoff that Rickie Fowler would win in sudden-death over Kevin Kisner.

Garcia went 0-for-3 in par breaker chances to finish at even-par in the playoff and was eliminated. The 35-year-old started the final frame in a six-way tie for fifth at 8-under and two shots back of the 54-hole leader. He squared the opener with a bogey-5 and looked to be off to a shaky start. This proved temporary as the Spaniard would promptly birdie four of his next five to move to 11-under. He stagnated mid-round with seven straight pars and looked to be playing his way out of contention when he squared his second bogey on the 14th. The 2008 PLAYERS champion would respond however, with birdie on 16 and then dropped a massive 43'10" birdie on the 17th. Garcia had a chance at 18 to win in regulation but missed.

Sergio Garcia authored a 5-under-par 35-32=67 in the third round of THE PLAYERS to post 8-under 208 and a share of the early clubhouse lead.

Garcia, the 2008 PLAYERS champion, started the third round tied for 27th and five shots off the pace. After an opening par, he jump-started his day on the next by chipping in for an eagle-3 from the right rough 17 yards short of the hole. His pace cooled considerably for the remainder of his outward half squaring a bogey on the seventh against six pars, two of the scrambling variety. Things would heat-up quickly after the turn as the Spaniard rolled in birdies on holes 10-12 and had a golden chance for four straight at the 13th but missed from 3'5". The short miss obviously affected him in the short-term as he squared his second bogey on the very next hole. The 35-year-old closed convincingly however, with back-to-back birdies on 16 & 17 and holing a huge par putt on 18 from 12'1" to maintain his momentum.
May 9 - 5:18 PM

Sergio Garcia turned in a 3-under-par 36-33=69 for his opening round of THE PLAYERS and sits two strokes off the clubhouse lead.

The Spaniard rolled into Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, misfiring a bit. That's a relative knock given his long-term form, but fantasy golf is a results-based venture, so there was some concern. He all but extinguished it today with five birdies against two bogeys. His longest birdie dropped in from 26'1" at the par-5 16th hole. Garcia has cashed in 11 straight starts at TPC Sawgrass, a stretch that includes a win, a second and last year's solo third. The course doesn't boast many horses, but if you grade on the curve, the 35-year-old most definitely qualifies.
May 7 - 6:53 PM

Sergio Garcia used all 18 holes to beat Tommy Fleetwood 2-up in the first round of the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Match Play Championship.

If there's such a thing as a mismatch in experience, this was it. Yet, the Englishman had control for most the way. Fleetwood, who made his debut in this tournament today, parlayed a birdie-4 at the first hole into a lead that reached 2-up at the par-3 ninth, which he birdied. Garcia, who's in his 13th appearance, collected his first win of the day with a par-4 at No. 12, and then evened with a birdie-3 at 15. Fleetwood conceded the par-4 16th, and then traded pars with the Spaniard at the par-3 17th. Needing a birdie-4 at the last to extend, it was Garcia that found it instead. Fleetwood will try again on Thursday against Jamie Donaldson, while Garcia will be put to the test against Bernd Wiesberger.

Sergio Garcia looks to pad his match-play resume at this week's World Golf Championships-Cadillac Match Play Championship.

The Spaniard has been mediocre in year's past, collecting a 15-13 record at this event. He won his Ryder Cup singles match last fall, but that doesn't speak volumes when you look at his opponent, Jim Furyk's match-play record. Garcia was given a generous group to work with as he's paired with Tommy Fleetwood, Bernd Wiesberger, and Jamie Donaldson. They are a combined 0-3 at this event. Garcia looks like a strong bet to make it out of group 10, but gamers shouldn't expect much more this week.
Apr 28 - 9:27 PM

Sergio Garcia finished off his week at the 79th Masters with a 2-under-par 34-36=70 that left him in a tie for 17th.

After shooting a 71 in the company of Tiger Woods in round three, the Spaniard managed one better today to end at 5-under 283. It gives him a third top 20 in the last four Masters although, in a wider sense, it represents another disappointing week in his bid to win a first major. It looked as if he might have a low one in him after birdies at the third and fourth but he went flat after that with 12 pars, a bogey at 13 and a final par breaker at 15. Garcia was eighth in fairways hit but wasn't sharp enough with his irons or putter.
Apr 12 - 7:24 PM

Sergio Garcia mixed four birdies and three bogeys in a 1-under-par 35-36=71 on Saturday to slip to T18 after 54 holes of the Masters.

The Spaniard was again upstaged by playing partner Tiger Woods, whose 68 means the former world no.1 now has a 15-3-4 advantage in 22 head-to-heads against Garcia. Sergio birdied the short par-4 third hole and the difficult seventh while he cashed in with another pair at the two back-nine par fives. But bogeys at the fourth, 12th and 18th left him at 3-under 213 and again out of the hunt at a major. He three-putted twice.
Apr 12 - 4:58 AM

Sergio Garcia settled for a 2-over-par 40-34=74 in today's second round of the Masters.

And he's fortunate to sign for that number. He totaled only nine greens in regulation and squared seven bogeys, including a 6 at the 13th hole. Garcia still managed to find five birdies, including four on his last five holes to salvage the round, but at 2-under 142, he's outside the top 10 on the leaderboard and 12 strokes back of the 36-hole lead.
Apr 10 - 4:32 PM

From the final threesome in the opening round of the Masters, Sergio Garcia posted 4-under-par 34-34=68, finishing four strokes off the overnight lead.

The Spaniard was grouped with 20somethings Jason Day and Rickie Fowler, so even though many golf fans still associate Garcia with a youthful exuberance, he's 35 years of age. And yes, he's still after his first win in a major. Today, he landed 11 greens in regulation but limited the damage to one bogey, that a 4 at the sixth hole. Elsewhere, he picked off four birdies, including a pitch-in from well off the side of the green at the par-4 14th. In 14 previous starts in the Masters, Garcia has three top 10s, but only one in the last 10 editions (T8, 2013).
Apr 9 - 7:37 PM

Sergio Garcia submitted a 3-under-par 36-33=69 for his third round of the Shell Houston Open.

Garcia went 6-for-7 in scrambling with one bogey while picking off four birdies at the Golf Club of Houston today. His only measurable conversion dropped for par from 17'4" at the par-3 14th where he found a greenside bunker off the tee. At the time he signed his card, he held a share of the 54-hole clubhouse lead at 9-under 207 but sat T18 on the leaderboard. Sunday's objective will simply be to retain some consistency and perhaps back-door a top 10 to fuel some confidence before making the trip to the Masters.
Apr 4 - 4:19 PM

Sergio Garcia settled for a 1-under-par 35-36=71 in his second round of the Shell Houston Open.

Although he reeled in a red number, this wasn't one of his better days. Garcia amassed 15 opportunities to break par but converted only thrice for birdie. The set was highlighted by an 18-footer at the par-4 sixth hole. He also went 1-for-3 in scrambling with bogeys at Nos. 3 and 4. So, at 6-under 138, the Spaniard sits three strokes adrift of the 36-hole clubhouse lead, but he's probably talking to himself a bit this afternoon.
Apr 3 - 1:29 PM

Sergio Garcia carded a 5-under-par 35-32=67 in his opening round of the Shell Houston Open, parking it four strokes off the clubhouse lead.

Garcia finished third in this event last year, so he essentially picked up where he left off, although the Spaniard revealed both sides of his personality today. After opening with three straight pars, he double-bogeyed the par-5 fourth after rinsing his approach and two-putting from inside three feet. Fortunately for his owners, he shook it off an buried eight birdies against just one bogey the rest of the way. He rolled in a pair of conventional conversions from 15-20 feet, but the highlight occurred at the par-3 ninth hole. Garcia's tee ball came to rest in the rough on the lip of a bunker. Choking down and chipping toward a tight pin, he center-cut the flag stick, holing out for a 2 from 13 yards.
