Sergio Garcia's Wyndham Win Proves Former Phenom Will Win a Major
Sergio Garcia's roller-coaster career will not come to a close without him posting a major victory on his resume.
His gutsy win at the Wyndham Championship on Monday—there was a rain delay—proved that he does indeed have the mental game to pull off a major.
Garcia had a one-shot lead entering the final round, and he held that through his first four holes of his final round before play was halted for the day.
This gave Sergio, who has derailed himself plenty of times with fluctuating emotions and wild play, an extra night for him to contemplate his position, and considering that he has not won a PGA event since the 2008 Players Championship, the walls of pressure had to be closing in.
It didn't faze Sergio. In fact, he seemed to use the pressure to propel him to excellence. He birdied five of his final eight holes to finish with a final round 66 and win the tournament by two over Tim Clark.
His ability to keep himself under control to close out this tourney is exactly what the 32-year-old needs to give him the major that his tremendous talent allows him to win.
At different times in his career, winning a major is something that has fluctuated between being foregone conclusion and an absurd notion for Sergio.
But this is also the same golfer that has gone through slumps that have seen him go years without capturing a win, and even led to him taking a temporary hiatus from the game 2010, which led many to the reasonable conclusion that Sergio's days as a force were long gone.
Through all of this, Garcia remained an elite ball-striker. It has largely been his short game that has failed him, and any issues with the short game are going to be greatly amplified when the pressure is cranked up.
Garcia emphatically proved with this win that he can overcome the pressure and knock down putts when all eyes are on him.
He is far too good of a ball-striker to not be in a position to claim a major, and with this new-found poise and experience, Sergio will win one of the four tournaments golf uses as the ultimate measuring stick of greatness.
