Sergio Garcia breezed through Colonial Country Club with a 4-under-par 32-34=66 during the second round of the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational, staking out a spot just one off the lead at 5-under 135.
The Spaniard rocketed out of the gate with four birdies in his opening seven holes. It's easy to see how he racked up six birdies when you realize he gave himself seven birdie looks from inside 13 feet today, converting on six. Garcia currently ranks ninth in the field in strokes gained off-the-tee and second in strokes gained approaching-the-green. With those kind of ball-striking stats, Garcia should keep his nose in the mix all weekend. May 26 - 6:30 PM

Defending champ and World No. 5 Sergio Garcia painted a 6-under-par 35-29=64 in the third round of the AT&T Byron Nelson to reach 8-under 202, up 19 spots to T6, four back of 54-hole leader James Hahn.

After an opening one-birdie four-bogey 73, last year's playoff winner (63-66-68-68) has rebounded with 65-64. He began T25 on 2-under, 10 shy of 36-hole leader Jason Kokrak, and found nine (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, gaining 2.507 strokes approaching-the-green. The 37-year-old was 1-over thru six holes, squaring a lone bogey-5 at three (failed scramble), but leveled the card with birdie-4 at seven. On his home half, he carded two separate hat-tricks of birdies, the first on holes 11-13 and then finished with a trip-birdie finish at 16-18. The Spaniard's split featured four from between seven and 13 feet, posting 1.571 putts per GIR and 2.858 SG: Putting. UPDATE: TOUR officials have switched to threesomes for R4 due to weather delay; Garcia is now in penultimate group off No. 1 tee.

Last year's champion Sergio Garcia coasted to a 5-under-par 32-33=65 during round two of the AT&T Byron Nelson, climbing back into the mix with a two-day tally of 2-under 138.

Garcia stumbled out of the blocks on Thursday with a 3-over 73 and kicked off his scoring today with a bogey at the par-4 12th, reaching 4-over for the week. The Masters champ could have easily shut it down from there, but he bounced back with birdies in three of his next four holes. Two of the three conversions came from the 13-to-17 foot range. Garcia would add three more circles on his homeward nine and walked off the course gaining 3.547 strokes putting today after losing 3.279 in R1. With two wins already on his Byron Nelson resume, it is clear Garcia is comfortable at this event, making him a strong contender to rise up the leaderboard over the weekend.

Two-time AT&T Byron Nelson champ Sergio Garcia returns to TPC Four Seasons Resort this week for a chance to defend his 2016 title in which he beat Brooks Koepka in a playoff.

Garcia was blemish-free thru 36 holes last year to sit in a share of second place at the midpoint. He slowed his pace as the week progressed but still managed his way into a playoff and escaped victoriously. Garcia finished the week with 403'6" of putts made but also gained 7.76 strokes tee-to-green. It was not the Spaniard's first taste of success at this event as he also won the 2004 edition when he opened with a 4-under 66 at Cottonwood Valley GC before piecing together rounds of 68-65-71 at TPC Four Seasons Las Colinas. Again, he needed a playoff to secure his victory, beating out Robert Damron and Dudley Hart to pick up what was then just his fourth TOUR title. Winning a green jacket just five weeks ago (10th PGA TOUR win), Garcia arrives in good form and his course history certainly speaks for itself.

Past champ and World No. 6 Sergio Garcia painted a 5-under-par 34-33=67 on Moving Day at THE PLAYERS to reach 5-under 211, up 37 spots on the live leaderboard to T6. UPDATE: With play completed, Garcia is in a three-way T7, four adrift of 54-hole co-leaders J.B. Holmes and Kyle Stanley.

After opening in 73-71, the 2008 playoff winner improved to 16-for-18 at TPC Sawgrass. He began T43 on even-par, nine adrift of 36-hole co-leaders Louis Oosthuizen and Kyle Stanley, and found 10 (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, gaining 5.319 strokes tee-to-green, the current leader in the latter with a cumulative 11.227. The Masters champ squared three bogeys at 1, 10 and 18 (3-putt from 70'6"), offset by six birdies at 4, 6, 9 and 11-13, adding a 17'1" eagle-3 from off the green at 16 using the flat stick. His split featured three from between 14 and 25 feet with a long of 24'3" at the par-4 sixth. Garcia gained 1.956 strokes on-the-green, but signed his card at 69th in SG: Putting thru three days at -1.930.

Sergio Garcia stumbled out of the gates in round one of THE PLAYERS, but still managed a 1-over-par 40-33=73, a round that included a hole-in-one at the infamous par-3 17th hole.

The Spaniard returned from a four-week layoff after the biggest win of his career (81st Masters). He showed a lot of rust on the front nine, putting in particular. Garcia would end the round with five missed putts from inside seven feet. He found himself 4-over thru 15 but that is where the tables turned. He circled a stress-free birdie at the par-5 16th and then pulled the string on his par-3 17th tee ball, leading to a hole-in-one, his second career ace on the PGA TOUR. It is only the second ace at No. 17 over the last 15 years, although the other came recently when Willy Wilcox drained one just last year. This wasn't the best start for the 2008 champ, but he now has a lot of momentum heading into a Friday morning tee time.

Past champ and World No. 6 Sergio Garcia contests his 18th consecutive PLAYERS and kicks off at 1:41 PM ET in Round 1 with past PLAYERS winners Adam Scott and Matt Kuchar.

This is the Spaniard's first action since his playoff win at the Masters five weeks ago. After getting the Major monkey off his back in his 74th major appearance, he took the green jacket on its customary tour, though his went worldwide as well. The 37-year-old will tackle TPC Sawgrass with an interim caddie, giving his regular looper a month off after welcoming a new baby last week. The fill-in is childhood friend and long-time European Tour player Jose Manuel Lara. Garcia, the 2008 PLAYERS champ in a playoff, is 15-for-17 overall in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, with nine top 25s, six top 10s and four top 3s, including runner-ups in 2007 and a playoff loss in 2015. Along with the win at Augusta, he also won the Dubai Desert Classic in February.

Overnight co-leader and World No. 11 Sergio Garcia won his first major championship in his 74th overall major appearance, carding a final-round 3-under-par 34-35=69 to match playing competitor Justin Rose with 72-hole aggregates of 9-under 279, and then won the 81st Masters with birdie on the first playoff hole, the par-4 18th.

This was the Spaniard's 313th career start (310 pro) and 19th Masters. He'd been a runner-up four times in majors, most recently at the 2014 Open Championship, and his previous best at Augusta was T4 in 2004. The 37-year-old, a pre-tourney 33/1 outright, claims his 10th PGA TOUR title, first since his come-from-behind (playoff) win at the 2016 AT&T Byron Nelson. After opening in 71-69, he was one of four co-leaders, and began tied with Rose after a third-round 70. Garcia found 10 (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, posting 1.61 average putts per hole with zero 3-putts. He circled the first and third to go out in 2-under, still tied with Rose, gave back two at 10 and 11 to fall two behind, but salvaged par on 13 despite an errant tee shot (and penalty). Garcia clawed back with birdie-3 at 14 and eagle at the par-5 15th, and missed birdie from five feet at 18 to win in regulation, but dropped the winner in sudden death from 12 feet.
Apr 9 - 7:53 PM

Overnight quad-leader and World No. 11 Sergio Garcia orchestrated a 2-under-par 36-34=70 in the third round of the 2017 Masters to post 6-under 210, good for a share of the 54-hole lead with Justin Rose, who shot the day's low round with 67.

After opening in 71-69, the 37-year-old co-led with three others, including playing competitor Charley Hoffman, who shot 72. Playing out of the final twosome, he found 11 (of 14) fairways and pelted 15 greens in regulation, posting a 1.78 average putts per hole with one 3-putt. The Spaniard squared two bogey-5s at holes 7 and 9, the latter the 3-jack from 39 feet, but overshadowed them with birdies at 5, 8, 13 and 15, three from inside of five feet and splashing home a 38-footer for birdie-3 at the fifth. This is his 74th major championship appearance and he's been a runner-up on four occasions, most recently at the 2014 Open Championship at Royal Liverpool in England. Garcia's best in 18 prior Masters is T4 in 2004.

World No. 11 Sergio Garcia orchestrated a 3-under-par 33-36=69 in today's second round of the Masters Tournament to post 4-under 140, up three places on the leaderboard and joining the clubhouse lead with first-round leader Charley Hoffman. UPDATE: With play completed, Garcia is in a four-way T1 (Thomas Pieters, Rickie Fowler) with Fowler's 67 the low round of the day.

The 37-year-old's 71 on Day 1 was the only blemish-free loop and positioned him in an 8-way logjam six back of 18-hole pace-setter Hoffman. He got off to a quick start on Friday, birdieing his first three before giving one back at the par-3 fourth. The 9-time TOUR winner squared the 10th and 13th, but outbalanced those with circles on 9, 15 and 17, currently tied for the low round of the day with Ryan Moore. He split 13 (of 14) fairways and hit 12 greens in regulation, averaging a stellar 1.56 putts per hole and has no 3-putts thru 36 holes.
Apr 7 - 3:47 PM

Sergio Garcia cruised to a bogey-free, 1-under-par 35-36=71 during the opening round of the 81st Masters Tournament, staking a spot inside the top 5 after day one.

The Spaniard did a good job off the tee today, striping 11 (of 14) fairways to give himself good looks at the greens. Playing in blustery conditions, it was not so easy from there, landing a ho-hum 13 greens in regulation before going 5-for-5 scrambling to keep his clean card intact. In addition to stellar scrambling, Garcia has great lag putting to thank for this round as he converted just three putts from outside five feet today, one of them being a 12-footer for his lone birdie at the par-5 eighth hole. The Spaniard has talked himself out of contention here at Augusta National quite a few times in the past, posting just three top 30s over his last 12 visits, but he's off to the races after today's clean start.
Apr 6 - 7:26 PM

As he makes a 15th appearance in the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play, Sergio Garcia will be hoping to buck the trend of his past efforts; he’ll tee it up at Austin Country Club on Wednesday.

The Spaniard has a career singles record of 30-25-3 across all competitions, but as with his Ryder Cup singles record (2-4-1), his WGC performances have flattered to deceive. In all of his 14 starts he has only once played four matches, when reaching the semi final in 2010. Consequently his log reads an uninspiring 18-16. He may have some recent fond memories of the match play format however – the last time he was seen playing it was when he halved his match against Phil Mickelson in the Ryder Cup, a match widely perceived one of the greatest match-ups in the tournament’s history (they made 19 birdies between them and hit a better-ball score of 18-under 58; Garcia shot 63 with his own ball). A strong winner of the Dubai Desert Classic, he was T14 in the Honda Classic and then T12 in the Mexico Chammpionship. To progress to the knockout stages he must first negotiate compatriot Jon Rahm, Kevin Chappell and Shane Lowry in Group 7.

Sergio Garcia eased his way around Club de Golf Chapultepec during round one of the World Golf Championships-Mexico Championship, escaping with a bogey-free, 3-under-par 34-34=68 to place himself inside the top 10 on the early leaderboard.

Garcia played aggressively today at Club de Golf Chapultepec and was rewarded with a blemish-free round. Despite the option to club down on many holes, the Spaniard showed a lot of confidence and piped 11 tee shots of 299 yards or longer. He gained 2.014 strokes off-the-tee using this strategy but couldn't capitalized in the approach area. On the greens, Garcia splashed home four putts from outside six feet including a round-long 20'4" birdie splash at the par-4 10th. It will be interesting to see if he maintains the same aggressive approach tomorrow or if he'll club down a bit to give him better approach angles.

World No. 9 Sergio Garcia authored a 4-under-par 33-33=66 in today's third round of The Honda Classic for a three-day total of 5-under 205, up 33 places on the live leaderboard to T15.

After opening in 68-71, the 37-year-old improved to 7-for-7 at PGA National. He has three previous top 25s, two for top 10s, including a runner-up finish last year as a 54-hole co-leader, closing in 1-over 71. For a third straight lap, the Spaniard split 10 (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation, recording 1.538 putts per GIR and 28 total putts. He squared three bogeys at Nos. 2, 5 and 14 (failed scrambles), but outpaced them with five birdies, all from inside of 14 feet, and a walk-off 3 from 16 feet at the par-5 18th.

Sergio Garcia closed out victory in the Omega Dubai Desert Classic at Emirates GC with a smart final round of 3-under-par 33-36=69, good for a 72-hole total of 19-under 269 and a three shot winning margin over runner-up Henrik Stenson.

Ahead of the final lap the contest seemed to have boiled down to a two horse race between Garcia and Stenson - and so it proved. The Spaniard made the first move, ticking birdie at the 1st to stretch his advantage from three to four. He would close the front nine with another par breaker at the 9th, but Stenson was making ground and on the 15th tee the gap was just two. What happened next, Garcia said afterwards "was massive". Stenson flew the green at the par-3 and Garcia pounced, nailing his tee shot to tap-in range; Stenson made bogey, Garcia converted, the lead was back to four. It was not quite over; Garcia missed the green with his approach to 16, but a dazzling chip saved par and with it the title. He dropped no shot on Sunday and impressed all week with every facet of his game. "Some of the key moments, how I handled them," he said of the final round challenge, "I'm very pleased." The win, his 12th on the European Tour, is the first since 2014.
