USPGA Championship Contenders 2012 - Sergio Garcia

PGA Championship Sergio GarciaTop Spaniard, Sergio Garcia, remains the best golfer in the world today still yet to win Major, despite thirteen top ten finis. Sergio has had three top ten finishes in the PGA, his best being his runner up spot to Tiger Woods in the highly memorable 1999 tournament. He was also runner up in 2007 at the British Open where he lost in a play off to Padraig Harrington. Unfortunately Sergio was disqualified at this event in 2007 but had been third in 2006. He has won 19 professional tournaments thus far, including the '5th major', the Players Championship, which he won in 2008.

Garcia is just coming out of a major slump that has seen him drop down the World Rankings over the past couple of years. Garcia took a break from the game in 2010 and since returning he looks to be slowly coming back to form with a good showing at the US Open recently telling us that he could be a danger at the USPGA.

Playing Style

Sergio has had many comments made about his swing, which is far from conventional, yet he hits the ball predigious distances off the tee and as he says "he would rather have a swing that works for him than a perfect swing that doesn't". He has a superb short game and, on his day is red hot on the putting surface.
