Major agony for Garcia, Donald, Westwood


That’s 0-54 and counting in golf’s four majors for Sergio Garcia and the strain is beginning to show. The Spaniard was in a black mood all week at Augusta National, where Bubba Watson won the Masters at his fourth attempt and a closing one-under 71 did little to lift his spirits. Once again he had failed to win a major. Asked to confirm comments he made to Spanish reporters after his 75 in the third round on Saturday to the tune that he was no longer capable of winning a major title, Garcia barked back: “Do you think I lie when I talk?
“Everything I say, I say it because I feel it. If I didn’t mean it, I couldn’t stand here and lie like a lot of the guys do.
“If I felt like I could win, I would do it. Unfortunately at the moment, unless I get really lucky in one of the weeks, I can’t really play much better than I played this week and I’m going to finish 13th or 15th.” Asked what he thought was missing in his game, Garcia replied gloomily “Everything!”
It’s all a long way since Garcia exploded onto the golf scene as a 19-year-old who took on the emerging Tiger Woods in a memorable showdown at the 1999 PGA Championship.
