Sergio Garcia once again missed out on his first LIV Golf victory as South African Dean Burmester claimed a lucrative playoff victory at Trump Doral in Miami.

Garcia found the water hazard from the fairway on the second play-off hole and Burmester held his nerve with a three-footer for par to seal his own first LIV title.

Burmester’s victory adds to his two wins on the DP World Tour in his native South Africa during a productive off-season.

And when asked by LIV’s Dom Boulet whether he deserved a spot at The Masters after his latest triumph, Burmester gave a measured response.

“I can’t say that,” he replied. “I mean I can’t say that Augusta, they make their own decisions. But I feel like I’ve played some of the best golf of my career and I feel like I’ve played against a lot of good players all over the world and won and this kind of just proves it. Do I wanna be there? For sure. I obviously wanna be there.”

Garcia, who lost in sudden-death to Talor Gooch in Singapore last year and most recently to Joaquin Niemann at LIV Golf Mayakoba, said: “It’s not the play-offs. I’m doing it (to) myself.

“Obviously a couple of shots here and there. But it’s what it is. You’ve got to keep giving yourself chances and wait for it to happen.”

The Spaniard is one of 13 LIV players making the short trip from south Florida to Georgia for the first major of the season this week at Augusta National.
