Sergio Garcia, remember him? Garcia was going to break into golf’s elite few when he broke onto the scene in 1999. Garcia was an exciting player who shared some of the same emotions we have seen from other great players from Spain. Garcia never really found the form that would take him where only the few have stepped. Garcia who lives in Borriol, Spain has only 7 PGA Tour victories to his credit and has never won a major. He did win the Players Championship in 2008, some consider that tournament golfs fifth major although it won’t be counted in history as so.
One of Garcia’s biggest problems that has probably kept him from the Major stage has been his putting. Today Garcia shot a nice round of 63, 7 under par to find himself 2 strokes off the lead and tied for 3rd place heading into the weekend. Garcia is tied with Tim Clark,Harris English and Carl Pettersson. It would be great to see Garcia make it into the last group on Sunday and have a chance to card his 6th win. Still lots of golf to play at the Wyndham, stay tuned to USA Sports 360 for all your updates….
