Sergio, on the verge of top ten in his 2013 PGA Tour

 

The player from Borriol closed the tournament with a final-round 72 under difficult conditions. Heat baked Riviera’s fairways and greens and it was very tough to have birdie chances.

García made two birdies and three bogeys on the day, finishing in an aggregate 6-under 279, only a step away from starting his PGA Tour year in a rewarding top ten. All the same, Sergio leaves to Arizona with many positives. His long game still feels very polished (he is hitting more than 50% of fairways and almost 75% of greens in regulation) and he only lacked some more consistency on the greens to fight for the title. He hit great medium and long-range putts, but could not capitalize shorter birdie chances. In any case, he got a good result.

Sergio has had ten top-25 finishes in a row from last August, a fact that says a lot about his current form.

The golfer from Castellon next plays at the WGC Accenture Match Play in Arizona, which brings together for the first time this year most of the best golfers in the world from this Wednesday.
