I remember watching a very young Sergio on the practice range at his first Masters. There was such a buzz from the pros as well as spectators watching him work the ball so very well. (1999?)

Now with 12+ years playing professional golf, how would you consider Sergio's career to date?


top notch player, watching him and Tiger battle at times was entertaining.

Ah, I will offer an opinion later.

I did enjoy a meal in Europe recently, and I marveled at the stunning Ferrari Sergio pulled away from the restaurant in. Wink

That said, he did not let me ride in his Ferrari like Miguel Angel Jimenaz did...cigar in hand. Cool

Sergio had something FAR better looking than me next to him.

Always liked Miguel, what color was his ferrari red??


Indeed.


I hear Miguel is a big wine guy. Any truth to this?

Absolutely... he charges towards life.
Sergio conveys many different impressions. The first is the exhuburant, exciting player who is hitting shots around trees and running in the fairway. Loads of talent and fun to watch.

Then there is the petulant brat, one with the sense of entitlement who always has an excuse. The main factor with Sergio is that he cannot putt on Sunday with a major on the line. Hopefully, the massive scar tissue that he has accumulated will not prevent him from getting at least one major.

With all that said, I like the guy.

Darn, no need for me to post... you said what I was going to post. Smile

I would add, one heck of a Ryder Cup player!

He's frustrating, especially when you hear the commentators keep talking about how he used to be such a natural putter and now he's clearly so unnatural and uncomfortable looking on the greens. Another interesting example of a guy that's great in match play (as W+A pointed out), but can't hold it together in the majors against the field, kindof like Colin Montgomerie.

Monty, one of the truly great Ryder Cup players, ever.

Sergio has played in the U.S. far more than Monty. Monty just never seemed comfortable on this side of the pond, and was never a fan of the heat. Smile

Big F'ing deal. Play them off the same tees and Sergio wins by at least five every time. That's about the same as saying some high school kid is unbeatable in his league, therefore he has done better than Sergio. Nobody watches the LPGA for a reason.
I also enjoy watching LPGA events, but I watch almost all of the golf on TV. I would debate the high school competition assertion this way, in high school there are numerous classifications based on geography and enrollment. The LPGA is basically a worldwide tour, so Tseng is beating the best women in the world. She could not control her gender at birth, so why should she expect to compete against men (although she could beat 99.98% of them).

Her winning four majors at her age is the first time it has happened since Young Tom Morris over 130 years ago. That is impressive in any league.

I know that golf is off of the radar at this time of year, but Sergio has won back to back tournaments in Spain on the European Tour. He won the first by 11 shots and followed it with another win. If this level of play continues, expect a good year from Garcia in 2012.

Yes, but victories on the J.V. European Tour only count as half a win in the U.S. Just ask Colin Montgomerie. Big Grin
