Sergio Garcia has not won in nearly three years but seems confident.
“I really like the way I’m stroking it and I’m pretty happy with everything that’s going on,” he said.
“The greens were very nice, very quick but rolling very, very true. If you managed to put some good rolls in there, you were going to make some putts. I wouldn’t say it was easy but it was definitely not as tough.
“The only thing I can do is keep giving myself chances, and it’s going to happen.
“I feel like I’m getting closer and closer. At least now I feel like I can do it and it’s just a matter of being able to do it.”
I believe he wins it this weekend. Plus he was on the cover of the original xbox 1 game Links 2004 🙂 (BTW backward compatible with 360) We wish him luck.
