First-round leader Sergio Garcia put it in reverse on the back nine and had to settle for a 1-under-par 33-38=71 in his second round at the BMW Masters in China.
One clear overnight, the Spaniard is now three behind Lucas Bjerregaard after posting 9-under 135 at the midpoint. Garcia looked all set to build a healthy halfway lead after advancing to 11-under with birdies at 3, 6 and 7 on his opening nine. But he gave a shot back at 12 before racking up a double bogey-7 at the par-5 13th after finding water with his second shot. He did at least recover with a birdie at 15 and added three pars to finish the day in tied second. It's been a masterclass from the tee so far this week with the 35-year-old piping 26 (of 28) fairways while he hit another 14 greens in regulation today after missing just one on Thursday.

Sergio Garcia birdied half the holes at Lake Malaren on Thursday and ended the first round of the BMW Masters with a one-shot lead after posting an 8-under-par 33-31-64.

In an imperious display of ball striking, the Spaniard hit all 14 fairways and missed just a single green in regulation. This is the Sergio of old, rather than the one languishing at 30th on the Race to Dubai and today's round equalled his lowest 18 on the European Tour this season. Starting with a birdie at 10, Garcia added three more at 12, 13 and 14 before swallowing his only bogey of the day at 17. It proved a temporary blip as the 35-year-old circled five birdies on his second nine. He leads by a shot from Byeong-Hun An and Victor Dubuisson while Ross Fisher and Lucas Bjerregaard share fourth on 6-under. "I drove the ball very well and that gave me a lot of opportunities to hit some good iron shots. It was a nice round," said Garcia, who birdied three of the four par 3s.

Sergio Garcia wrapped up the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions with a 4-under-par 32-36=68 to post 14-under 274, three strokes off the pace of the 72-hole clubhouse lead.

It was actually Garcia's third 68 of the tournament. They sandwiched a second-round 70. Devoid of the spectacular, it was the usual above-average finish for the Spaniard, except that he hadn't wrangled anything better than a T24 (CIMB Classic) in his last four starts worldwide. At last check at Sheshan International today, he was situated in a logjam at T10.

Sergio Garcia posted a 2-under-par 34-36=70 in his second round at the WGC-HSBC Champions in Shanghai, China and is eight off Kevin Kisner's lead at halfway.

The Spaniard nudged up three places on the leaderboard to T13 on Friday but has plenty to do over the weekend after having to be content with 6-under 138 through 36 holes. Garcia has split just 11 (of 28) fairways at Sheshan International Golf Club this week but he's limited the damage by hitting 28 greens in regulation and going 7-for-8 in scrambling. His only bogey today came via a three-putt at No. 12 while he circled birdies at 4, 7 and 18.

Sergio Garcia tees it up in his third consecutive CIMB Classic at the Kuala Lumpur Golf & Country Club in Malaysia.

Garcia made the league-minimum amount of starts last season with 15, and mustered a pair of runner-up finishes, most notably a P2 at THE PLAYERS but more relevant to this week, a T2 at the CIMB. (He went T11 in the 2014 CIMB as well). The Spaniard ended the regular season at No. 31 in the FedExCup standings, and then for some unknown reason, sat out the first two legs of the Playoffs. He did eventually play the 70-man no-cut BMW Championship and finished T39, hitting the showers at No. 53 in FEC points, his second-worst finish ever (109th in 2010). The 35-year-old has not played competitively since. However, at No. 11 in the Official World Golf Ranking, Garcia is the second-highest ranked player in the field this week (Stenson- 7th) and his course-form alone begs attention.
Oct 28 - 7:02 AM

In a brief report filed by's Rex Hoggard on Aug. 29, it's anticipated that Sergio Garcia will return to competition at the BMW Championship on Sept. 17-20.

Hoggard cited Garcia's agent, Carlos Rodríguez, as the source. The golfer started the FedExCup Playoffs slotted 31st in points. He sat out The Barclays and slid to 43rd. He's not competing in this week's Deutsche Bank Championship, but will remain inside the top 70 to advance to the third leg at Conway Farms where he placed T18 in 2013. It behooves the Spaniard to play if for no other reason than it will mark his 15th start on the PGA TOUR this season, so he'll be fulfilling the membership requirement without the need of a dispensation for the Open de España in May. The TOUR has granted waivers for homeland events to golfers who can claim another tour as a home circuit.
Sep 3 - 10:10 PM

Sergio Garcia is not among the commitments to next week's Deutsche Bank Championship.

This is interesting. He's already sitting out The Barclays, but the expectation was for him to return at TPC Boston on Sept. 4. Now, even though the commitment deadline was today at 5:00 p.m. ET, the field won't be set officially until the conclusion of play at Plainfield Country Club this weekend, so perhaps Garcia pops up when the published field is updated on Monday, just don't bet on it. He's 31st in the FedExCup standings, but the only other time he's sat out the first two legs was in 2010 when he started the Playoffs slotted 101st and took two months off for personal reasons. The Spaniard also took a pass on the DBC in 2012 and 2014 before resuming his schedule at the BMW Championship both times. He's advanced to East Lake in each of the last three years. If he commits to the field of 70 at this year's BMW (Sept. 17-20), he'll have some confidence in knowing that he tied for 18th the first time Conway Farms hosted in 2013.

Sergio Garcia is not listed in the published field of next week's Barclays.

The commitment deadline for the first event of the FedExCup Playoffs fell at 5:00 p.m. ET on Friday (yesterday), but the field won't be finalized until the conclusion of this week's Wyndham Championship. Garcia sits 31st in points, so he'll advance to the second leg in Boston, a stop he skipped last year (and in 2012) to rest. He's qualified for the Playoffs in every year since its debut in 2007, but he took a pass at The Barclays in 2010. He entered that tournament slotted 100th in points, so he didn't advance. That was the year when he took two months off from competition after his poorest season as a touring professional.
Aug 22 - 2:21 PM

Sergio Garcia is 2-under-par 71-67=138 at the break of the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational, six swings off the 36-hole lead.

He hasn't lost the tournament yet, but a three-hole stretch in his opening round is hovering like a dark cloud. Garcia opened the tournament birdie-birdie on the back side of Firestone. After two pars, he bogeyed both the par-4 14th and par-3 15th before penciling in a 9 at the par-5 16th. Yep, the Spaniard found the pond with his third on the hole, but he didn't find the putting surface until his sixth stroke and three-putted from just 8'2". But he circled six birdies on the round to escape with the 71. Today, he hit 12 greens and poured in another six birdies, including rolls of 15'2" and 23'10" at the sixth and 12th holes, respectively. Garcia ranks third in strokes gained: putting this week (aggregate 3.718) and first in putts per GIR (1.478).

Sergio Garcia will have to put more disappointment behind him when he returns to Switzerland to contest the Omega European Masters.

Despite a final-day charge at St. Andrews, his challenge petered out on the back nine and the Spaniard had to settle for T6. Admittedly, he appeared fairly sanguine about his latest failure to win a first major title and, to be honest, it was more a case of him being outplayed on the tough back nine than doing anything particularly wrong. A trip to the beautiful scenery at Crans-sur-Sierre should provide an ideal opportunity for Garcia to appreciate the positives and, indeed, he used to own a property close to the course. It's a venue where he's had plenty of success, highlighted by a victory in 2005.
Jul 21 - 5:27 PM

Sergio Garcia ran out of steam in his final round of The Open Championship but still managed a 2-under-par 32-38=70 to touch 11-under 277 for the week.

The Spaniard mounted a charge early at St. Andrews today, scattering five birdies on his first 10 holes. Alas, he bogeyed the par-4 12th, 13th and 17th holes before coming to rest four strokes off the 72-hole clubhouse lead. Nevertheless, despite his 0-fer in the majors, he came through for gamers who always need a reliable resource in this unpredictable tournament. He'll collect his nine top 10 in what was his 19th appearance.
Jul 20 - 1:15 PM

Sergio Garcia is 9-under-par 70-69-68=207 through three rounds of The 144th Open Championship and sits just two strokes off the 54-hole clubhouse lead.

Garcia was paired with Jordan Spieth, which can't hurt the Spaniard formerly known as El Niño given what the contemporary wunderkind has accomplished this year and in the majors, especially. Garcia rose to the occasion by hitting 17 greens in regulation and pouring in five birdies. He dropped only one shot with a 5 at the par-4 fourth hole. Garcia has squared only four bogeys all week, but he might need to roll in a few more par breakers if he's going to convert on his first title in a major. This is his 17th appearance in The Open, 68th start in a major and 65th consecutive.
Jul 19 - 12:37 PM

Sergio Garcia rounded off his 115th U.S. Open with a 2-under-par 32-36=68, concluding his 16th appearance at 3-over 283.

Garcia began his final frame at 5-over (T35) on rounds of 70-75-70. While nine shot off the pace of the leaders, he was within sight of the overnight top 10, sitting four adrift of that mark. On his round, he circled three birdies, but they all came on his outward nine. He failed to take advantage of the two drivable par 4s on his inward half, bogeyed the 17th (missing a four-footer), and then failed to birdie the par-5 18th. The Spaniard landed 15 greens in regulation, but he didn't have many realistic scoring chances. He did miss three, mid-range chances inside of 15' including a 10-footer at the par-5 last. His conversions were a nine-footer at the ninth, 14-footer at the eighth, and from 17' at the opener. The 35-year-old currently sits T19 on the live leaderboard, up 16 spots on the day.
Jun 21 - 7:15 PM

Sergio Garcia birdied two of the final three holes and conjured up an even-par 36-34=70 in his third round of the U.S. Open at Chambers Bay.

That's a gritty performance from the Spaniard, who suffered bogeys at 4 and 7 and also swallowed a triple bogey-7 at 14. Despite those setbacks, Sergio was able to sprinkle his card with five birdies over the final 10 holes. Those par breakers came at 8, 10, 13, 16 and 18 as he matched his opening 70 to slot in at 5-over 215 after 54 holes. Despite being one of the many players to complain about the greens, Garcia's putter was the key today as he took just 28 swishes of the short stick. That was nine less than yesterday. He's currently T33 but that should improve as the day goes on.
Jun 20 - 6:38 PM

Sergio Garcia authored an even-par 36-34=70 on day one of the 115th U.S. Open after staging a late recovery.

Starting at 10, the Spaniard dropped shots at 13 and 16 and, after a birdie at the par-5 18th, swallowed another bogey at the short par-4 third. That didn't bode well going into the four long par 4s at 4, 5, 6 and 7 but Garcia managed to birdie the latter two to get back to even par. Despite that late boost, the 35-year-old took to social media shortly after his round with a string of tweets bemoaning the state of the greens. He took 33 putts in his opening round after hitting 14 greens in regulation.
