Sergio’s favorite backyard

Sergio García kicks off the Andalucía Valderrama Masters hosted by the Sergio Garcia Foundation this Thursday. A special week for him. He is the host, but also plays on one of his favorite courses, Valderrama. Sergio has already won here the last Andalucia Valderrama Masters in 2011.

"We are at the end of the season and it's a bit long, but last week I felt and played quite well, and this week we're going to go for more of the same. We will continue to work on what we are doing, try to be strong mentally, even in difficult times. As you know, Valderrama is one of my favourite courses and whenever I'm here I try to do my best. Let's see if we can have a good week. "

A victory this week would be the icing on the cake of an unforgettable year. "It has been an incredible year with a lot of precious things and it is probably the best year of my career, but we have to continue because it is not all over here. All that is success of the Spanish sport is great for Spain. That we, as golfers, can bring seven wins is something incredible and people have to give the corresponding merit. Spain is not a first world country in terms of quantity, but it is in terms of quality.”
