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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Sergio Garcia won't be around for the weekend at Royal County Down after an 8-over-par 39-40=79 left him at 12-over 154, way over the cut line.

After a 75 in round one, Sergio needed something around par on Friday to make the top 65 and ties who advance. But he set the tone for a miserable morning with a bogey at 10, his opening hole, and it got worse from there. A sole birdie of the day at 2 got him back to 6-over and offered brief hope of a revival but the Spaniard swallowed two bogeys and two doubles after that. He split just 4 (of 14) fairways while there's a search party out in Ireland trying to find his short game. Sergio took 70 putts over the two rounds and was just 3-for-12 in scrambling.

Sergio Garcia's first European Tour victory came in the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open but he hasn't played in the event since 2000.

The Spaniard is a welcome addition to the field at Royal County Down this week and he's sure to be reminded of the three and only Irish Opens he contested from 1998-2000. Garcia won the middle of those at Druids Glen in 1999 after closing with a 64 but hasn't included the event on his schedule since a T10 at Ballybunion in 2000. After a recent playoff loss at Sawgrass, Sergio could only finish T22 in his home Open de España the following week but expect him to be prominent here as he has a great record on windy links courses.

Sergio Garcia faces an anxious wait to see if he's made it through to the weekend at his home Open de España.

After slumping to a 75 in round one at Real Club de Golf El Prat, the Spaniard needed to repair the damage on Friday morning but could only manage an even-par 36-36=72. Right now, he's in T76 and a shot outside the cut line although the tough afternoon conditions might mean those at 3-over 147 still have a chance. A pair of bogey-6s at 10 and 2 damaged his hopes although he at least gave himself a fighting chance with two birdies and four pars in his final six holes. "I tried very hard, but just couldn't get much going," Garcia told reporters afterwards. UPDATE: With the winds getting up, scores ballooned in the afternoon and Garcia got into the weekend with a shot to spare.
May 15 - 9:03 AM

Sergio Garcia looked to be suffering a Sawgrass hangover after slumping to a 3-over-par 38-37=75 on day one of his home Open de España.

Garcia lost out to Rickie Fowler after a three-hole playoff on Sunday but today showed none of the spark that got him so close to victory at THE PLAYERS. Going out in the tougher afternoon conditions, the Spaniard bogeyed the third and fourth and wiped out a birdie at the sixth with another dropped shot at the ninth. His day took a final turn for the worse when he carded a walk-off bogey at 18 to slip a full 10 shots behind leader Trevor Fisher, Jr. He drove the ball okay, hitting 10 (of 14) fairways, but found just nine greens in regulation and was only 3-for-9 in scrambling.
May 14 - 3:27 PM

After losing a playoff at THE PLAYERS, Sergio returns home to contest this week's Open de España.

The tournament, which moves around Spain, is staged this year at Real Club de Golf El Prat and was the scene of his first professional event in 1999. However, his T25 came on the old layout and this week he'll tee it up for the first time on the new Greg Norman design. That course staged the 2011 event but it was held during a period between 2004 and 2012 when Sergio chose not to play his national Open. Garcia, who won the tournament in 2002, returned to the Open de España in 2013 (T25) and also took part last year (T12). He won twice on Spanish soil in 2011 so can get it done in front of his home fans when he'll inevitably be the centre of attention.
