Sergio Garcia did what Tiger Woods said he does every time he is leading a golf tournament. Yesterday Garcia only needed to play the same kind of golf he played in the first 3 rounds of the Deutsche Bank Championship.
Instead, Garcia let his nerves take over and he went backwards. Garcia shot 3 rounds in the mid 60′s to start his final round with a 2 stroke lead. He could get anything going and he finished the front 9 with a 3 over par 39.
Garcia made bogeys on the par fives that he birdies most of the time in his first 3 rounds. He only made one birdie on the front nine and had 4 bogeys. Garcia was letting the tournament slip out of his grasp.
He couldn’t pull himself together to close out with a decent final round. Garcia lived up to the picture Tiger Woods painted of him earlier this season when Woods said he couldn’t finish a tournament without choking.
Garcia couldn’t gain any ground on the back nine either. He only made 2 birdies and it was a little too late seeing how the others were all playing under par golf. All Garcia had to do was to play the same kind of golf he played in the first 3 rounds. He couldn’t do it.
Garcia choked once again when he was in the lead.
