World No. 10 Sergio Garcia sleepwalked to a even-par 38-34=72 in the second round of the Valero Texas Open and at 2-over 146, missed the cut by one shot.
A total of 80 pros from a field of 156 pros made the 36-hole cut of 1-over 145 so a second cut of low 70 and ties will take place after 54 holes. Garcia, the top-ranked OWGRer and pre-tourney fave outright (14/1), opened with an indifferent one-birdie, three-bogey 74 and cancelled three birdies with three bogeys on Day 2. His four total birdies ranked a dismal 121st and was 97th in SG: Putting (-0.797) and 98th in SG: Approach (-0.529). This was the transplanted Texan's 44th MC on TOUR in 329 events and misses consecutive cuts (Masters) for the first time since the 2004 Open and PGA Championships. Other notable early exits include: 146- Pat Perez; Luke List .. 147- Ryan Palmer; Kevin Na; Scott Piercy .. 148- J.B. Holmes; Adam Scott; Shubhankar Sharma .. 152 Jhonattan Vegas. Apr 20 - 8:50 PM

World No. 10 Sergio Garcia readies for his third Valero Texas Open and arrives off a missed cut (by 10) at Augusta National GC on 15-over 159, the worst score ever by a defending champion at the Masters.

The Spaniard is the only player in the 156-man field that's in the top 20 in OWGR and is a 14/1 pre-tourney fave outright. This is his third VTO, second at the par-72 TPC San Antonio. He played the first edition in 2010 and finished T45 (73-68-73-73). The transplanted Texan's MC at the Masters ended a run of three straight top-10 finishes, including a T9 at the Match Play in Austin (3-1-0 record), where he won his group as a 7-seed and then lost 3-and-1 to 45-seed Kyle Stanley in the Round of 16. He hasn't won on TOUR since last year's Masters (26 starts ago), but does have two worldwide wins since, most recently at the Singapore Open 13 weeks ago. This is the 25th event of the season and just the 38-year-old's sixth start, third since his daughter was born 35 days ago. Three of his 10 TOUR titles have come in Texas, most recently the 2016 Bryon Nelson.

World No. 9 Sergio Garcia labored to a 6-over-par 38-40=78 in Friday's second round at Augusta National Golf Club and at 15-over 159, recorded the worst 36-hole score by a defending Masters champion, and missed the cut by 10 shots.

A total of 52 pros and one amateur (Doug Ghim) from a field of 81 pros and six amateurs made the 36-hole cut of 5-over 149. Garcia, a pre-tourney 33/1 outright, was the only player of the top 15 on the bookmaker's food chain to hit the road. The Spaniard's opening 81 was a large reason for his demise, and matched his worst round at ANGC in 68 laps (R3/2016). For the short week, he totaled just six birdies against nine bogeys, two doubles and the now infamous octuple bogey-13. Other notable departures include: 150- 2011 champ Charl Schwartzel; Jason Dufner .. 151- Patrick Cantlay; Shubhankar Sharma; Thomas Pieters; Brendan Steele; 2016 champ Danny Willett .. 152- Ross Fisher; Pat Perez; Patton Kizzire .. 153- Alex Noren; Kevin Chappell .. 154- Gary Woodland.

Defending champion Sergio Garcia swallowed a 9-over-par 38-43=81 during round one of the 82nd Masters Tournament, losing eight of his strokes on the par-5 15th hole alone.

The Spaniard wasn't completely lost out there today like the score might indicate. In fact, he was 2-over thru 14 holes before the trouble hit. At the par-5 15th he found himself 205 yards from the pin after his tee ball. He rinsed his approach shot and proceeded to hit four more balls in the water before finally getting the ball to stop on the green. He then splashed home a nine-footer to card a 13 on the par 5. Garcia is always aggressive on approach and today's pin location did not favor his aggressive nature. In true Garcia fashion, he knocked in an 8 footer at the following hole for birdie. The Spaniard now has an uphill battle just the make the cut.

Sergio Garcia battled his way to a playoff victory at last year's Masters Tournament and he returns this week as a fresh father, ready for a chance to defend his crown at Augusta National Golf Club.

The Spaniard entered last year with no expectations at Augusta National but it all came together for him and he capped off the victory on what would have been the 60th birthday of Seve Ballesteros. Garcia started the week with a bogey-free, 1-under 71 and would later add 13 more birdies and an eagle before his week was done. Garcia and Justin Rose separated themselves from the pack, each finishing at 9-under 279 on the week, three clear of the next closest competitor. A lot of people had given up hope on the Spaniard winning the Masters since his previous quotes at Augusta National were less-than-inspiring. Now it will forever be a place he cherishes. In fact, he just became a father on March 14th and they fittingly named their daughter Azalea. The last back-to-back winner at Augusta National was Tiger Woods in 2001 and 2002.

7-seed Sergio Garcia dispatched 20-seed Xander Schauffele 3-and-1 in round-robin action on Friday and advances to the Round of 16 at the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play. UPDATE: Garcia will play Group 10 winner and 45-seed Kyle Stanley.

Garcia, who got bounced last year on Friday as the 7-seed, makes amends, improving his record to 3-0-0 and sending first-timer Schauffele packing (2-1-0). He was down early, but finished with a birdie barrage to play the weekend for the first time since 2014 four tries ago (previous format). The 38-year-old halved the first with birdie, lost hole 2, but squared the match with birdie-3 at 3. He lost hole 4 with bogey and went 2 DOWN to Schauffele's third birdie at 6. Garcia won the 7th with par (1 DOWN), lost 8 with bogey (2 DOWN) before winning 12 with birdie-4. He leveled the match with birdie-3 at 13, went 1 UP with another birdie-3 at 15 (from 7'11"), 2 UP with birdie-4 at 16, and closed out with a concession at the par-3 17th after the American put his tee ball in the hazard (penalty). In total, Garcia, who'll face the Group 10 winner, birdied four of his final six holes.

Sergio Garcia got hot on the back nine and turned around his Thursday match with Dylan Frittelli to score a 2-up victory and advance to 2-0-0 at the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play.

Masters champion Garcia, the seventh seed, was lacklustre on Austin Country Club's opening holes and Frittelli ended the front nine 2-up after winning birdies at 1, 5 and 6. A winner on day one after beating Shubhankar Sharma with a birdie at 18, Garcia found a spark by making three circles at 10, 12 and 13 to go 1-up and the momentum swing continued as Frittelli doubled the 14th to leave Sergio 2-up with four to play. The South African 41st seed cut the gap with a birdie at 16 but, 1-up playing the last, Garcia effectively slammed the door with a brilliant drive to pin high on the par-4 closer. Frittelli is now out after two straight defeats.

Sergio Garcia has a curiously poor record in the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play and will hope to turn around his fortunes at Austin CC this year.

In 15 previous starts at the tournament in its various guises, the Spaniard has only progressed past the last 16 once - a fourth place in 2010. That contradicts some standout performances for Europe in Ryder Cups although perhaps that suggests he finds more mojo in team play. With his Masters defense on the horizon and the excitement of becoming a new father for the first time, Sergio could be a little distracted this week so there are certainly reasons to oppose him. On the plus side, he's won three of his 10 PGA Tour titles in Texas and is in strong form after T4 in the Valspar and T7 at the WGC-Mexico Championship on his last two starts. As for this venue, he won two of his three matches in 2016 and was 1-1-1 last time, being thumped by Jon Rahm in what was the group decider. This year, seventh seed Sergio takes on Xander Schauffele (20), Dylan Frittelli (41) and Shubhankar Sharma (62) in Group 7.

World No. 11 Sergio Garcia painted a 6-under-par 34-31=65 in the final round of the Valspar Championship to post 8-under 276, up 21 places on the live leaderboard to T4, good for the 72-hole clubhouse lead and the low round of the day thus far, and tying the low round of the week with two others. UPDATE: With play completed, Garcia finished a season-best solo 4th, two back, and his 65 was matched by champion Paul Casey.

The 38-year-old is now 6-for-6 at the Valspar with four top 25s and two top 10s, joining a T7 on last visit in 2013. He improves to 3-for-3 on the season with two top 25s, both top 10s, arriving off a T7 at the WGC-Mexico. After kicking off in 70-72-69, the Spaniard began T25 on 2-under, seven back of leader Corey Conners. He striped 11 (of 13) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation, gaining 1.733 strokes off-the-tee and 4.422 approaching-the-green, currently No. 1 in driving accuracy for the week at 76.92 percent (40/52), and SG: Off-the-Tee (6.050). Garcia squared two bogeys at holes 2 (3-putt from 45'4") and 5, smothered by eight birdies at 1, 3, 4, 7, 10, 11, 14 and 15, all from inside of eight feet.. He posted 1.643 putts per GIR and -0.405 SG: Putting with 28 total putts. Garcia's wife is expecting their first child in one week (Mar. 18th).
Mar 11 - 4:25 PM

Sergio Garcia will make one final start ahead of becoming a father, setting his eyes on Innisbrook Resort's Copperhead Course for this week's Valspar Championship.

The Spaniard was T2 after 36 and 54 holes last week at the WGC-Mexico Championship. He faded to T7 with a Sunday 70. Now he'll peg it at Innisbrook Resort for the sixth time in his career. In his previous five trips, he is 5-for-5 with a T7 in 2013 being the highlight. That was also the last time he put this event on his schedule. With his wife, Angela, due with their first child at the end of March, this is his last planned start before baby arrives. Gamers shouldn't avoid Garcia due to the possibility of an early birth, but they should be aware of the small risk that he would need to WD.

World No. 12 Sergio Garcia back-pedaled to a 1-under-par 34-36=70 in the final round of the WGC-Mexico Championship, falling five spots to T7 on 12-under 272, four adrift of a two-man playoff involving Justin Thomas and eventual champion Phil Mickelson.

After opening with 68-65-69, the 38-year-old began in a four-way T2, two back of leader Shubhankar Sharma. Playing out of the penultimate threesome, he hit eight (of 14) fairways and mustered 11 greens in regulation, losing 1.051 strokes off-the-tee and 1.683 approaching-the-green. The Spaniard carded five birdies at holes 2, 6, 11, 12 and 15, slightly outpacing two bogeys at 8 and 17, and double bogey-6 at 10. He recorded 1.545 putts per GIR and 2.509 SG: Putting with 27 total putts. Garcia nets his 17th top 10 in 54 career WGC events but is still looking for his first WGC title. It's his first top 10 of the season in two starts, arriving off a T33 at last week's Honda.
Mar 4 - 8:09 PM

World No. 12 Sergio Garcia pieced together a 2-under-par 34-35=69 in the third round of the WGC-Mexico Championship to post 11-under 202, two swings short of 54-hole leader Shubhankar Sharma, and will play out of the penultimate threesome in Round 4.

The 38-year-old won his first major at the 2017 Masters in his 74th major appearance and now is vying for his first WGC title in his 54th WGC event. After opening with 68-65, he began the day T2, two back, and that's where he ended. The Spaniard, whose wife is expecting on March 18th, found nine (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation, gaining 2.380 strokes off-the-tee but losing strokes on approach and around-the-green. He squared two bogeys at holes 3 and 10 (3-putt from 29'8"), outpaced by four birdies at 1, 2, 13 (from 23'5") and 15, posting a pedestrian 1.867 putts per GIR and -0.886 SG: Putting, needing 32 total putts.
Mar 3 - 6:20 PM

World No. 12 Sergio Garcia painted a bogey-free 6-under-par 33-32=65 in the second round of the WGC-Mexico Championship for a 36-hole tally of 9-under 133, up six places to T2, two short of leader Shubhankar Sharma, and tying the low round of the day with Kyle Stanley.

The 38-year-old found 10 (of 14) fairways and peppered 15 greens in regulation, gaining 1.623 strokes off-the-tee and 4.004 approaching-the-green, No. 1 for the day in SG: Approach. He circled four birdies at holes 4, 6, 10 and 18, two from between 15 and 17 feet, adding eagle-3 at 11 from 22'1". The Spaniard recorded 1.733 putts per GIR and 1.494 SG: Putting with 29 total putts. He'll play out of the penultimate group in Round 3.
Mar 2 - 6:37 PM

Due to lightning in the area, round one of the WGC-Mexico Championship was suspended at 5:20 p.m. central time. There is no current timetable for the length of this delay. UPDATE: Play resumed at 5:52 p.m. which put the delay at 33 minutes.

With a field of just 64 golfers, a delay like this won't have a big impact on the ability to finish the tournament on time. However, golfers will need to step off the course for now until the storm passes. Just before play was halted, Sergio Garcia safely posted a 3-under-par 34-34=68 to sit himself inside the top 10 on the live leaderboard. It was an up-and-down day for the Spaniard who traded seven birdies with four bogeys. Garcia gained 1.129 strokes off-the-tee, 2.085 strokes approaching-the-green, and 1.358 strokes with the putter. If his flat stick stays warm then he should keep his name on the top page of the leaderboard all week.
Mar 1 - 6:27 PM

Sergio Garcia returns to Mexico City for the World Golf Championships-Mexico Championship at Club de Golf Chapultepec.

The Spaniard was T12 here last year, an almost-but-not-quite effort, one in which he never threatened to win, whilst never posting one low round to boost his general play. Given that Ross Fisher says the course reminds him of many Spanish tracks and Valderrama in particular, added to the Spanish being spoken all around him, Garcia ought to feel at home. Perhaps the key is the Poa Annua. Garcia is not the most content on the greens, allows himself to be spooked easily and his on-the-green stats were his least impressive last time on the course. A winner in Singapore, he couldn't crack the top 30 in his subsequent starts in Dubai or last week in the Honda Classic.
