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. Jul 17 - 1:08 PM

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.

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.

Sergio Garcia remains winless in major championships following an even-par 33-37=70 during the closing round of this week's U.S. Open Championship, finishing the week at even-par 280.

The Spaniard was right in the mix throughout the day. His stock was at its highest following a 29-yard hole out from the bunker at the par-3 eighth hole. He picked up a baby bird to save it from being trampled on his way toward the ninth tee box (a sign of more birdies to come?). From there, he drove it straight into the drainage ditch, but recovered for a fantastic par save. It looked like it might be his day after he rolled in a 16-footer for birdie at the par-3 13th hole to reach 3-under on the week. This is where things took a turn. He three-jacked the par-4 14th to swallow a bogey and found himself with an impossible bunker lie off the tee at the par-4 15th, leading to another bogey. The bogey train caboosed at the par-3 16th, where he found another bunker off the tee, squaring another bogey to put his hopes and dreams of a first major championship out of reach. He is now 0-for-72 in winning majors, but he keeps putting himself in position to pick one off (21st top 10 in a major).

Sergio Garcia battled for an even-par 34-36=70 in the second round of the U.S. Open to reach the midpoint on 2-under 138, two back of 36-hole clubhouse leader and playing competitor Dustin Johnson.

The Spaniard went off No. 10 tee for the second of his 18-hole tours of Oakmont CC on Friday. He mustered five (of 14) fairways and hit 11 greens in regulation, totaling 28 putts. The 36-year-old book-ended bogeys on 10 and 18 to outpace birdie on the 17th to turn 1-over. He squared back-to-backs with bogey at the first, but then rebounded to play his final eight holes in blemish-free 2-under. Garcia birdied the par-4 second from three feet and the par-3 sixth from 13 feet, before saving par from eight feet at the eighth, setting up the highlight of his round. He drove wildly left into the ditch on the par-4 ninth, advancing the ball just 38 yards on his second, but back in the fairway. Garcia found the surface with his third, and then canned a 51-footer for a ridiculous walk-off par.

After a slow start to the round, Sergio Garcia rebounded to record a 2-under-par 35-33=68 during round one of the 116th U.S. Open Championship.

The Spaniard swallowed bogeys at Nos. 2 and 3, and it looked pretty grim at that point. Instead of sulking, Garcia bounced back with circles at the par-5 fourth and par-3 sixth holes. The first was of the tap-in variety while the par-3 birdie came from 15 feet. Making the turn at even-par, he splashed home back-to-back birdies from 9-to-11 feet at holes No. 10 and 11. He followed that up with a par-saver from 15 feet at the par-5 12th hole to keep the momentum rolling. Garcia is infamously still in search of that first victory at a major championship. He arrived with zero top 15s in his last four U.S. Open appearances but is taking a quick liking to Oakmont Country Club this week, a venue where he missed the cut back in 2007.

With a par on the first playoff hole, Sergio Garcia emerged the victor at the AT&T Byron Nelson for a second time in his 12th appearance (2004 playoff), and claimed his ninth PGA TOUR title in his 301st career start.

The Spaniard was first to post 15-under 265 with rounds of 63-66-68-68. Overnight leader Brooks Koepka would match two groups later, after missing a mid-range chance at the last to win in regulation. The duo headed back to the par-4 18th for sudden death and Koepka ended the drama nearly immediately, putting his driver off the tee into the water and slopping his way to a double bogey-6. Garcia downgraded to 3-wood and won with a routine two-putt par. This was the 36-year-old's first win on TOUR since the 2012 Wyndham Championship (45 months ago) and came in come-from-behind fashion, beginning the finale three shy of Koepka.

Past champ Sergio Garcia conjured up a 2-under-par 33-35=68 in today's final round of the AT&T Byron Nelson to post 15-under 265, good for the 72-hole clubhouse lead.

The 2004 Nelson winner and the first-round co-leader began the finale in a three-way T3 on 13-under, three adrift of 54-hole leader Brooks Koepka. He found just half (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, posting a -0.596 SGTTG at the time he signed his card. The 36-year-old salvaged the round with the flat stick, recording 1.813 SGP, though he missed scoring chances on his final two holes from 11'4" and 12'4", respectively. He circled six however, including three straight on Nos. 5-7, to offset four bogeys, surviving two balls in the water on his inward half.

Past champ Sergio Garcia stalled out to a 2-under-par 32-36=68 in today's third round of the AT&T Byron Nelson for a 54-hole total of 13-under 197, down one into a three-way T3.

The 2004 Nelson winner and the first-round co-leader began the third frame on 11-under 129 (63-66), one back of 36-hole pace-setter Ben Crane. He reached 15-under with birdies on Nos. 2, 5, 7 and 8 and was the outright leader but squared back-to-backs on 9 and 10, his first bogeys of the week. The 36-year-old never recovered, playing his final eight holes in all pars and posting a dismal -1.023 in strokes gained: putting. Nonetheless, he's just three adrift of 54-hole leader Brooks Koepka.
May 21 - 7:04 PM

Past champ and first-round tri-leader Sergio Garcia spun a bogey-free 4-under-par 33-33=66 in the second round of the AT&T Byron Nelson to post 11-under 129, down one spot into a four-way T2, one back of 36-hole leader Ben Crane.

The 2004 Nelson winner co-led after 18 holes after a bogey-free 63 and is now blemish-free thru 36 holes. He circled four par breakers in R2 but on 15 greens in regulation for a pedestrian 1.867 putts per GIR. With preferred lies in effect for the first round and again in R2, the 36-year-old split 11 (of 14) fairways and registered 3.188 SGTTG at the time he signed his card. However, he posted -0.335 in SGP and missed scoring chances from inside of 11 feet at holes 4, 7, 11 and 13. On the plus side, Garcia did drop an 18-footer at the par-4 15th and a 24-footer at the par-4 eighth to highlight his four-birdie split.

Sergio Garcia bombarded TPC Four Seasons with a bogey-free, 7-under-par 29-34=63 to stake his claim of the early clubhouse lead as the a.m. wave finishes up on Thursday afternoon.

The Spaniard opened on the back nine today and really grinded out a 1-under 34 before making the turn. He splashed home a 16'11" birdie putt at the par-4 15th hole and needed a 21'1" putt to fall on the par-3 17th, just to save par. His ball-striking was a constant throughout the round, landing 14 greens despite just eight (of 14) fairways. Those greens in regulation put him in position to break par and that's exactly what he did, circling four birdies and an eagle on his inward nine. Most notable was a back-to-back combo starting at the par-4 sixth hole, where he knocked in a 26'4" birdie bomb and backed it up with a 58'1" eagle splash on the easy par 5. With 3.269 strokes gained putting on his round, it's safe to say Garcia is glad to be away from the lightning-fast green surfaces of last week's PLAYERS.
May 19 - 4:32 PM

Following a four-year absence from the AT&T Byron Nelson, Sergio Garcia returns this week for another crack at TPC Four Seasons Resort and Club Dallas at Las Colinas.

The Spaniard won this event in 2004, back when TPC Four Seasons shared the hosting duties with Cottonwood Valley GC. Since then, he's posted top 20s in two of his last five visits. Garcia currently ranks 48th in the FedExCup standings, but we've seen him put less emphasis on the Playoffs in years past. Instead, we should expect the World No. 15 to use this event as prep work to get back in form before the U.S. Open. Garcia made a lot of noise last week when he five-putted during the ridiculously tough Saturday setup at TPC Sawgrass, but gamers should expect a nice rebound this week on much easier green surfaces.

Sergio Garcia blitzed Valderrama on Sunday to shoot through the field and come up just short of a spectacular comeback victory in the Open de Espana, posting a 4-under-par 32-35=67 for the day and 3-over 287 for the week in finishing solo third.

The home favorite wasted little time setting out his stall on a day of milder wind and softer greens. He pounced with birdies at 3, 4, 8 and 12, and with the leaders struggling an outrageous victory was in his sights. A bogey on 15 seemed to have taken the wind from his sails only for him to make birdie from 30 feet on 16 and then tap in for another birdie on 17 after his eagle putt slipped past the hole. Pushing for one final red number he flew the final green and made bogey. He hit 15 greens in the final round, comfortably an improvement on the difficulties of earlier in the week. His final total was two shots shy of the winner Andrew Johnston's effort.

Sergio Garcia heads the betting going into this week's Open de Espana at Valderrama.

That comes as no surprise as Garcia has a magnificent record on the iconic venue he describes as his 'favorite course'. Sergio, who will peg it up with Martin Kaymer and Chris Wood over the first two rounds, won the last European Tour event (2011 Andalucia Masters) it staged and he also has three second places there. Overall, he's finished outside the top 10 just once in 11 starts at Valderrama. The Spaniard fell away at Augusta National last week (T34) but expect him to thrive again on his return to home soil. He has the added responsibility of being tournament host but he fulfilled such a role at the Castello Masters and won that event twice (2008 and 2011) so it shouldn't be seen as any sort of negative.
