In the world of professional golf there is one name to remember Sergio Garcia! He has been making some impressive moves on the Masters Tournament. From birdies to pars, Sergio Garcia’s first major title is within reach.

Read on and see what Sergio Garcia is saying…

LatinoAthlete.com is hoping that Sergio Garcia attains his goal to land his first major title at the 81st Masters tournament at the Augusta National Golf Club.

Sergio Garcia has everyone talking:

Oliver Brown as the Telegraph weighed in saying:

“Neuroses have crept over Sergio Garcìa like knotweed. Now, he leads the Masters and has rarely looked happier!”

AJC states:

“It’s Sergio Garcia’s day at the Masters!”

While Sky Sports Golf reports:

“Sergio Garcia moved into an early share of the halfway lead at #TheMasters after fine round of 69.”

Despite the confusion on the on the par-4 10th hole Garcia assured his wife, family and friends who were all there that everything was fine. See he thought he had lost his first tee off, but four holes later, his posted score was 2 strokes higher than it actually should have been.

The 37-year-old golfer simply shrugged, confident in knowing the scoreboards were wrong.

Garcia, who finished with a 3-under 69 that left him at 4 under going into the weekend, explained:

 

“The most important thing is I knew where I stood,. It was a little bit of a funky hole for us. Obviously, I didn’t hit a good tee shot. I got lucky, I have to say, I got very lucky with the bounce there … [Playing partner] Shane [Lowry] hit two balls to the left and we were looking for one; we couldn’t find it. We found the second one. So we are all dressed light-color pants and blue sweater, so I can see why they might have made the mistake.”

 

Garcia has infamously lost majors in every conceivable fashion, and has finished in the top five a dozen times was unperturbed by the incident.

Sergio concluded:

“It was fine.  I probably didn’t accept things as well as I should have. And I’ve shown myself many times after that, that I can contend and I can truly feel like I can win. Not only one, but more than one.”

At the end of the day, Garcia had one last thought since his long-awaited first major victory will happen only when everyone least expects it.

“Having a chance is the best thing — and winning it, I’m sure it’s amazing. But for me, I feel so fortunate that I’ve been able to be healthy, that I’ve been able to play so many majors in a row.”

We hope he takes the Masters all the way!
