Sergio Garcia breaks Ryder Cup record

Sergio Garcia

It’s official. Sergio Garcia has become the top points scorer in Ryder Cup history.

The 2017 Masters champion took down Rickie Fowler 2&1 at Le Golf National to reach 25.5 points, surpassing Sir Nick Faldo's record of 25.

Garcia entered the match trailing Faldo by two-and-a-half but, by winning three of the four sessions he teed it up in, he overtook the Englishman’s long-standing record.

Garcia’s first victory of the week came on Friday afternoon when he partnered Alex Noren to a 5&4 foursomes victory over Phil Mickelson and Bryson DeChambeau.

He then teamed-up with Rory McIlroy to take down Brooks Koepka and Tony Finau 2&1 in the Saturday morning fourballs before teaming up with Noren again in the afternoon as they beat Bubba Watson and Webb Simpson 3&2.
