A late three-putt cost Sergio Garcia dearly as he finished tied second, one behind the winner Andres Romero, in the BMW International Open after a final round 3-under-par 35-34=69, good for 16-under 272 alongside Richard Bland and Thomas Detry.
Garcia opened the day with a bogey-5 at the first, but recovered the shot at the 3rd. From that point he was bang in contention all day, helped by a spell of three red numbers in five holes at 9, 11 and 13. He held a share of a four-way tie for the lead on the 16th green, but his 25'0" birdie try slipped by and his missed the tiddler coming back. He scraped a par at 17 so needed eagle-3 up the last. His approach found the rough and an exquisite chip slipped by. His play-off hopes went with it. The result is his fourth finish of T7 or better in six starts at Golfclub Munchen Eichenried.

Sergio Garcia moved into a tie for the lead at the BMW International Open in Germany after crafting a 5-under-par 34-33=67 in Saturday's third round.

At 13-under 203, the Spaniard is level with Richard Bland of England, the pair one shot clear of halfway leader Joakim Lagergren. On an international leaderboard which shows nine different flags for the top nine places, it's a further two strokes back to Belgian Thomas Detry and Argentina's Andres Romero in T4. Garcia added to rounds of 66 and 70 with a seven-birdie lap of Golfclub Munchen Eichenried today. Starting his round one back, the Masters champion traded an opening birdie at 1 with a bogey at 4 after finding water before making circles on the par 5s at 6 and 9. On his second nine he sprinkled further red at 11, 12, 15 and 17 against a bogey at 14 and, with joint-leader Bland still winless on the European Tour, Garcia is a massive favorite to go on and complete victory in Sunday's closer and secure his 14th European Tour trophy. "I think it was a good, solid day," said the Augusta hero afterwards.

Sergio Garcia crafted a 2-under-par 33-37-70 in the second round of the BMW International Open at Golfclub Munchen Eichenried, good for T3 on 8-under 136, just one shot behind halfway leaders Joakim Lagergren and Joel Stalter.

The Spaniard started his Friday lap with the trees bending to a blustery wind and used all his skills to post five straight pars before then making a move with a hat-trick of birdies at 6, 7 and 8. Another five pars followed before, with the wind having dropped, he made two mistakes, squaring 14 and 17. But he unleashed a big drive on 18, hit a towering iron onto the par-5 green and two-putted for birdie which slotted him into A1 position when hunting the leaders at the weekend. He's seeking a second title in Germany, having claimed the German Masters back in 1999.

Sergio Garcia usually shines the week after the U.S. Open and did so again today after opening his bid for victory at the BMW International Open in Germany with a 6-under-par 33-33=66, good enough for T2 in the clubhouse with the morning wave finishing up.

That's just one swing behind leader Thomas Detry of Belgium. The last four times Garcia has played the week after the year's second major, he's made the top seven on three occasions (5-25-2-7 his full results) and he's on course for another good post-U.S. Open week after making it look easy at Golfclub München Eichenried today. A former runner-up at this venue (2011), Garcia set out from the 10th and registered his first birdie at No. 11. He picked off further red numbers at 16 and 18 before adding a second nine of 33 coming home. That was thanks to birdies at 5, 6 and 8. So far so good for the Masters winner and a first title since his Augusta National triumph is now very much on the cards.

Sergio Garcia had to settle for T21 in the U.S. Open; next up is a trip to Golfclub München Eichenried for the BMW International Open.

The Masters champ has been steady if unspectacular since his Augusta National breakthrough (30-20-12-21) but will now look to step it up at Golfclub München Eichenried. He has a good record there and, from five starts, boasts a second place in 2011, top sevens in 2001 and 2013 and another top 25 in 2004. Overall in Germany, he's posted top 25s in 10 of his 13 tournaments. One obvious question for an elite player is how will they perform the week after a major? Sergio's stats are encouraging. Across this event and the Travelers Championship (the PGA TOUR's usual post-U.S. Open tournament), he's recovered from his exertions at the year's second major with finishes of 5-25-2-7 over the last four years. Add that to his course and location form and gamers should have every confidence in the Spaniard this week.

Beginning off No. 10 tee, World No. 7 Sergio Garcia orchestrated a 1-under-par 36-35=71 in the second round of the 117th U.S. Open for a 36-hole total of 3-under 141, up three spots on the live leaderboard to T15.

The reigning Masters champ is playing his 19th U.S. Open with five previous top 10s, a best of T3 in 2005 and was T5 last year (68-70-72-70). It's his 75th overall major appearance, looking to double-up on his green-jacket win as 54-hole co-leader. The 37-year-old opened with 70, exchanging three birdies with three bogeys and kicking off with a 26-footer from the fringe for eagle-3 at the first. He landed 11 (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation in R2, gaining 1.949 strokes tee-to-green though losing 0.231 around-the-green. The Spaniard outpaced bogey-5s at 11 and 3 with birdies at 15, 18 (from 37'0") and 7 (16'2"), posting a pedestrian 1.923 putts per GIR, 0.559 SG: Puttting and 31 putts total.

Past champ and World No. 6 Sergio Garcia backed up with a 1-over-par 36-35=71 in the third round of the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational, down three places on the live leaderboard into a five-way T8 on 4-under 206.

The Spaniard is the top-ranked player in OWGR in the field of 121. After kicking off in 69-66, he began T5 on 5-under, one shy of four overnight co-leaders. The 37-year-old landed 10 (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, losing 0.712 strokes tee-to-green, including -1.699 around-the-green. He outbalanced birdie-3s at 6 and 10 with bogeys at 5, 7 and 11, the latter the results of an errant second to the par 5 that led to a penalty drop. Garcia posted 1.818 putts per GIR and 0.709 in SG: Putting, highlighted by two par-savers from between eight and 10 feet.

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.

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.
May 20 - 5:31 PM

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.
May 13 - 3:46 PM

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.
May 11 - 7:02 PM

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.
