Sergio secures his 20th top ten in a WGC

Sergio Garcia reached the quarterfinals of the WGC Dell Technologies Match Play played at the Austin Country Club after completing a remarkable group stage. He defeated Shane Lowry as well as Andrew Putnam and lost in a close match against Patrick Reed, a match between the last two Masters champions.

 

Despite the defeat, Sergio advanced to the round of 16 and defeated Branden Grace 1 up in the first knock out round. In the quarterfinals he lost against Matt Kuchar 2 down on the 18th hole.

 

Beyond the results, Sergio presented a very solid game throughout the week, especially from tee to green. Only few players ave been more effective than him in the statistics of greens in regulation. At the end, the fifth place gives him his 20th top ten finish of his career in the WGC, an extraordinary number considering that he has played a total of 58.
