Lay off of Sergio Garcia

Hi, I haven’t posted in a while, but someone needs to stand up for Sergio Garcia. The guy has been beat up more in the press than anyone else, even though Sergio performed just about as well (73) as Ernie Els (71), Jim Furyk (71), Angel Cabrera (73), and Adam Scott (72) on the final day of The Open Championship. Here’s a pretty brutal article entitled Garcia Suffers Curse of Custard Yellow and the Collywobbles. Or I just found this one: You’ll Never Be the Top Banana Until You Learn How to Putt, Sergio.

No one who has ever been paired with Tiger Woods on the final day of a major when Tiger’s the leader has ever posted a round better than Tiger, much less a round in the 60s, other than Bob May and Chris DiMarco.

Sergio Garcia is only 26 years old. Adam Scott is also 26 years old, and he hasn’t come as close to Garcia in winning a major. Comparing Garcia to Tiger is unfair. No one compares to Tiger. Garcia should be compared to some of the other major winners. Duval didn’t win his one major until he was 29 years old; Furyk was 33 years old, as was Phil Mickelson; Vijay Singh, 35 years old; and Mark O’Meara, at 41. Ernie won at age 24, and Justin Leonard at 25, but winning in the mid-twenties is really difficult.
