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.
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.
Jul 16 - 1:43 PM

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.

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).
Jun 19 - 8:12 PM

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.
Jun 17 - 9:04 PM

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.
