Sergio Garcia enjoyed another impressive lap of the Earth Course on Friday, signing for a 5-under-par 33-34=67 to share the halfway lead alongside Francesco Molinari at the DP World Tour Championship in Dubai.
In contrast to his opening 68, the Spaniard played the final four holes in 2-under as opposed to 2-over today and that allowed him to reach 9-under 135 at the midpoint. He and Molinari lead Lee Westwood by a shot. Sergio cruised through his opening nine with birdies at 2, 4 and 6 and added another at 11. He then produced one of the par saves of the season, taking a penalty drop from a bush after a hooked drive and draining a monster putt for his '4' at 12. He did give a shot away at 13 but responded with red circles at 14 and 16 to put himself in ideal spot to launch a title bid this weekend. "I felt like I was swinging the club really, really well," said Garcia. "I was hitting a lot of good shots. I hit a couple of iffy putts here and there but I made some really good ones, also." This is Garcia's sixth start in the European Tour's season closer and he's now 59-under for his 22 laps. Nov 18 - 7:52 AM

Sergio Garcia briefly held the outright lead before posting a 4-under-par 34-34=68 in round of the DP World Tour Championship in Dubai.

That's a single swing behind clubhouse leaders Julien Quesne and Nicolas Colsaerts. After a steady start featuring a birdie at No. 3 and six pars, the Spaniard hit the gas with red numbers at 8, 10 and 11. That put him just one off the pace and he leapfrogged the leaders in one move by draining a bomb for eagle at No. 14 to hit 6-under. Garcia consolidated his position with a par at 15 but dropped back with a double bogey-6 at the par-4 16th hole. Two closing pars completed a 68 and gave him a sixth round in the 60s in his last eight laps at the Earth Course. Garcia came into the event ranked 20th on the Race to Dubai but could climb as high as fifth with a win.

Sergio Garcia wrapped up a solid week in China with a 5-under-par 34-33=67 to finish the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions in a tie for ninth place on 12-under 276.

There was no catching Hideki Matsuyama this week, but the Spaniard finished just four strokes off the co-runner-ups this week. Garcia was tidy, tee-to-green, ranking T5 in fairways hit (42-of-56) and third in GIR percentage (79%). The 36-year-old was especially strong with the irons today, circling birdies on three of the four par 3s after playing them at 3-over without a single birdie during the first three rounds. Garcia was playing his fifth WGC-HSBC Champions this week, and he's now finished T11 or better in three of the five.

Sergio Garcia picked up right where he left off back at Hazeltine, carding a bogey-free, 5-under-par 34-33=67 during round one of the CIMB Classic in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

The Spaniard split nine (of 14) fairways and landed 15 greens today to keep the scoring opportunities flowing. He was also 3-for-3 scrambling to maintain a tidy card. Garcia's birdies came in predictable spots, with a birdie at the par-5 10th (Handicap 16), the par-4 16th (Handicap 15), the par-4 17th (Handicap 14), and an eagle at the par-5 third (Handicap 17). The only thing missing was a birdie at the easiest hole (par-5 fifth) which Garcia parred. The 36-year-old finds himself T6 after day one, but he'll need to keep his foot on the gas for three more rounds considering the winning score here last year was 26-under and three golfers have already raced out to 8-under.

The all Spanish duo of Sergio Garcia and Ryder Cup rookie Rafael Cabrera Bello closed out Team USA Captain's Picks J.B. Holmes and Ryder Cup rookie Ryan Moore 3&2 in Friday four-balls at the 2016 Ryder Cup.

The Spaniards win was the second on Day 1 thru seven matches, diminishing the U.S. lead to 5 points versus 2. Garcia was on the losing end in the morning foursomes sessions 4&2 (with Martin Kaymer), while Cabrera Bello got his first Ryder Cup action underway with birdie-3 at the first, stoking the Euros to a lead they would never relinquish. Garcia bumped the margin to 2UP with his first of five birdies at the fifth, with Cabrera Bello winning the sixth with birdie-4 and halving the seventh with a 15-foot par-saver. Garcia put the momentum squaring in the Euros favor with a pitch-in birdie at the ninth to go 4UP, maintaining that spread thru 13 holes, before Moore finally won holes for the U.S. with birdies on 14 and 15. Holmes contributed just one birdie-4 at the 11th for a halve.

Sergio Garcia, who owns the sixth best percentage rate of all-time European players, will tee it up in the Ryder Cup for the eighth time at Hazeltine National Golf Club this week.

The 36-year-old keeps the Spanish flame burning in this event, the one which has blazed so brightly since lit by Ballesteros and fanned by Olazabal. His overall record of 18-9-5 adds up to an excellent .64%. Delve deeper and you see he has a superb foursomes record (9-2-2), a fine fourball logbook (6-3-3) but is surprisingly weak in the singles (3-4-0). Will he be reunited with Lee Westwood in alternate shot? It would be no surprise since they are undefeated in foursomes with three wins and two halves (both players are on the brink of becoming Europe's winningest foursome performers in history). He's not extended himself in 2016, but scheduled with this match, the majors and the Olympics in mind. He won the Byron Nelson Championship, finished T5 in the U.S. Open and Open Championship, T8 in the Olympics, but lasted only two weeks in the FedEx Cup play-offs.

Sergio Garcia enjoyed a bogey-free 4-under-par 34-34=68 in the second round of the BMW Championship to reach halftime on 7-under 137, up 10 places to T6 with play still in progress.

Unlike 36 others, the 36-year-old completed his opening lap on Thursday. His 69 featured two bogeys against three birdies and an eagle-3 at the ninth. The Spaniard got on the board in R2 with another eagle-3, this one at the fifth, rolling in a 72-foot bomb from off the green using the flat stick. Ten holes later, he added an 11-footer for birdie at the par-5 15th, and walked off with a 12'4" roll for birdie-3 at the 18th. Garcia landed 14 greens in regulation for a second straight lap, recording 2.742 SG: Tee-to-Green but -0.692 SG: Putting. He only had one other scoring chance from inside of 10 feet, whiffing from 4'4" at the par-4 10th, but kept the card clean, highlighted by a 8'5" par-saver at the 12th.

After skipping the first leg of the FedExCup Playoffs, Sergio Garcia returns to action at this week's Deutsche Bank Championship.

The Spaniard skipped the first two tournaments of the Playoffs last year, so he's actually returning to action sooner this time around. It's not uncommon for him, as he's skipped TPC Boston three of the last four years, only to return for the BMW Championship. This week he arrives ranked 28th in the FedExCup race, so he'll need to bank some extra points over the next two weeks if he wants to make it to East Lake for the sixth time in his career. Given his long layoff (no play since Rio in mid-August), this might be a good week to let him shake off the rust before re-investing next week at the BMW Championship.

Sergio Garcia thrashed a superb 5-under-par 31-35-66 to end the Men's Olympic Golf Competition on 7-under 277.

The Spaniard has been wowed all week by the sporting festival taking place in Rio de Janeiro, but it took him fully four days to arrive at the party. His round was sublime, but also too little, too late for him to wear a medal. He made good early use of the par-fives, dropping a putt from 16'2" for a 4 on the first and making a two-putt birdie on No. 5. He then cruised the turn in some style. He tapped in for a birdie 2 at 8, kicked another birdie in on 9 and two-putted the par-five 10th for a hat-trick of red numbers. He drove the short par-four 16th to make a final birdie, before tripping up on 17 with a bogey-4. When he signed his card he was T5 but a full four shots shy of the medal podium.

Sergio Garcia is excited to be representing Spain in the 31st Olympiad at Rio de Janeiro this week.

If coping with blustery conditions is the factor many suspect it will be, then the 35-year-old has to be considered. This year he has been T7 in Doha, T2 at PGA National, a winner at Las Colinas and T5 at Royal Troon, each one of those venues testing everyone's long game in the wind. His form – if you forgive him the missed cut at Baltusrol in the PGA Championship - is also strong: 1-T5-T5-T5. And he can't be too tired, as some might be at this stage in the season, because the first of those five events was back in late May. It is debatable quite how much it will be a factor, but it might be worth considering that on Gil Hanse restorations Garcia has finished T2 at Ridgewood and T4 at TPC Boston.

In a year for first-time major winners, Sergio Garcia will hope it's his turn at this week's PGA Championship.

The Spaniard is 0-72 in the majors, a stat that would have been hard to believe when, as a young buck, he gave Tiger the fright of his life at Medinah in 1999. As well as that second place finish 17 years ago, Sergio was runner-up to Padraig Harrington in 2008 and T3 back at Medinah in 2006. Overall he's 10-for-17 at the PGA although he hasn't cracked the top 10 in the last seven years. Baltusrol looks a good fit though and he has some excellent results on other A.W. Tillinghast tracks. He brings good form to the table too after back-to-back top fives in the last two majors. For his latest bid to win one of these, the 36-year-old will have the company of double major winners Jordan Spieth and Bubba Watson over the first two rounds. That elite trio pegs it up from the 1st at 1:25pm ET Thursday.

Sergio Garcia styled a 2-under-par 33-36=69 in today's final round of The 145th Open Championship for a four-day tally of 4-under 280, up four spots on the live leaderboard to T5.

The 36-year-old remains winless in majors, making his 72nd attempt this week. He was playing his 20th Open and will notch his 10th top-10 finish, third straight, and is on the verge of his fifth top-5 finish. The Spaniard began the final frame on 2-under (T9), 10 back of 54-hole leader Henrik Stenson, after opening in progressively worse rounds of 68-70-73, but rebounded with four birdies against two bogeys in R4. If the top 5 holds, it'll be his fourth straight worldwide, and his second straight in a major, joining a T5 at the U.S. Open.

Sergio Garcia backed up with a 2-over-par 34-39=73 in the third round of the 145th Open Championship for a three-day tally of 2-under 211, down four places to T10 with play still in progress.

After opening in 68-70, the 36-year-old began the third round T6 on 4-under, six back of 36-hole leader Phil Mickelson. He's getting progressively worse as the week goes on. The Spaniard made enough par breakers, circling birdies on Nos. 3, 7, 8 and 14, but erased those with four bogeys and ended his scoring with a double bogey-6 at the 15th. He didn't birdie any of the three par 5s and bogeyed the par-5 fourth, which played as the easiest hole in each of the first two rounds. Garcia mustered just eight greens in regulation and totaled 28 putts.

Sergio Garcia tossed up a 1-under-par 35-35=70 in today's second round of the 145th Open Championship to post 4-under 138, up five spots on the live leaderboard to T7, six back of 36-hole clubhouse leader Phil Mickelson.

This is the 36-year-old's 20th appearance and 19th consecutive. His best is 2nd-place two times, including a T2 in 2014 (Royal Liverpool) and a playoff loss at the 2007 edition (Carnoustie). The Spaniard, still looking for his first major championship in his 72nd attempt, kicked off with a 68 (six birdies, three bogeys), and chased with three birdies against two bogeys in R2, lowlighted by a walk-off bogey-5 at the 18th. He entered the week off three straight top-5 finishes worldwide, including his ninth PGA TOUR title at the Byron Nelson, his first win on TOUR since the 2012 Wyndham Championship.
Jul 15 - 9:58 AM

A wild back nine - which saw him post every number from 2 to 6 - allowed Sergio Garcia to card 3-under-par 33-36=69 at the BMW International Open, good enough for T5 on 10-under 278.

The Spaniard is rarely sighted at standard European Tour events, but when he does tee it up a decent result is usually on the cards and he duly racked up a fifth top 11 finish on the bounce in such tournaments. His front nine was a breeze, with 3 birdies and 6 pars, but the back nine, not for the first time in the week, was a much wilder ride. He made 2 bogeys, 3 pars, 2 birdies, 1 eagle and a double bogey - an unconventional way of carding a level-par score of 36. He ended the week 7 strokes behind the winner Henrik Stenson.
