SER­GIO GAR­CIA

Golf World (UK) - - US OPEN -

Best US Open fin­ish: T3, 2005 Fin­ish in 2004: T20

Is there a player in the game harder to pre­dict than Ser­gio? The now 38-year-old Spa­niard toiled for 18 years and 70 ma­jors as a pro be­fore fi­nally land­ing the Green Jacket. Since then, he’s fin­ished no higher than T21 and missed the Mas­ters cut by 10. Will win­ning the Mas­ters gal­vanise him to kick on or have mar­riage and fa­ther­hood changed his pri­or­i­ties? It’s im­pos­si­ble to know, but we like him at Shinnecock. His 2018 stats are pretty solid — he’s eighth in the all-round SG: To­tal cat­e­gory. His one badly de­fi­cient stat is putting (141st) but, as he proved at Au­gusta last year and at plenty of other places, he has weeks when he holes plenty.
