Sergio Garcia returns this week to the competitive activity and does so in the Irish Open after fifteen years of absence in this event, which on the other hand brings great memories. It is well known that in 1999 he won the Irish Open just weeks after turning pro, starting here his great professional record of victories. He did it in the Druids Glen Golf Resort, rallying in the final round two strokes to Angel Cabrera with a splendid round of 64 strokes.
Sergio Garcia has delivered a final score of 73 strokes to finish 22nd at the Spanish Open, played this week in El Prat in Barcelona. Sergio came out with the firm intention to come back and give himself a chance of winning, but things did not go his way, especially on the greens.
Sergio Garcia (-2) has delivered the best card of the third round of the Spanish Open. By scoring a 67 he was gaining about fifty positions in the ranking and more importantly, it has left him the door halfway open for victory this Sunday in El Prat.
