AVONDALE, La. – Sergio Garcia was trunk-slamming early for a second true year during Augusta National, though that didn’t stop him from throwing a square of Masters story dual Sundays ago.
Garcia pronounced he was examination along on radio as Tiger Woods prisoner his fifth immature coupler and finished one of a some-more extraordinary comebacks in sports history.
“It was fun,” Garcia pronounced Tuesday during a Zurich Classic, where he will group with Tommy Fleetwood in a New Orleans-area group event. “I consider it was a good matchup with everybody that was adult there [on a leaderboard], and afterwards apparently as shortly as Francesco [Molinari] gave him a small bit of an opening, he came around with some unequivocally good shots, on [Nos.] 13, 15 and 16, to give himself a lead.”
Garcia, 39, has lots of story with a 43-year-old Woods, from vital championship battles to some controversial moments. But Garcia was still left tender by what Woods was means to do dual weeks ago during Augusta National, winning his 15th vital pretension after 4 behind surgeries, including a many new in Apr 2017 (less than a month after Woods withdrew from a same Masters that Garcia won).
“It’s good to see, and it’s considerable to see someone – even being Tiger, as we know how good he is – to come behind from 4 behind surgeries, and to be totally honest, substantially about 3 years ago we all didn’t know how prolonged he was going to play for since he was struggling to play 5 tournaments a year,” Garcia said. “So to be means to do that, it’s really impressive, and we’ll see where he goes from there.
“But it’s all a credit in a universe to him.”
