Sergio Garcia relishes German return

2014 06 117372398

Sergio Garcia couldn’t wait to get started at the BMW International today. And it’s hardly a surprise.


The world No.8 won the 1999 German Masters at this venue as a 19-year-old, and came close to winning the title in 2011, only to miss out to compatriot Pablo Larrazábal in a play-off. Throw in his good relations with BMW and his German girlfriend Katharina Boehm, and Sergio Garcia is almost an honorary German.
"I'm always excited to come back and play here." - Sergio Garcia

“I've always enjoyed playing here in Germany,” said the Spaniard. “I've been quite successful and I feel like the people have all welcomed me very nicely. We've had a good relationship with BMW for some years now, so it always makes it a little bit easier to come and play here.

“I have a lot of German things going on with sponsors, girlfriend, things like that, so yeah, I'm always excited to come back and play here.”

“This year, the Spanish national team didn't play very good and hopefully I will play very well,” joked Garcia.
"It's a little bit disappointing because we all had high expectations." - Sergio Garcia

“I think that obviously four years ago, I was in a different state of mind, as probably the Spanish team was. I think it's a little bit disappointing because we all had high expectations but it's understandable, too.

“They have had six amazing years, and the majority of the team is starting to get a little bit old, so they probably need to rejuvenate it a little bit. I think we have a good under 21s so we'll be fine. I'll support Germany now.”

Garcia is aiming to be the third Spaniard since 2004 to lift the BMW trophy, but he’s already five off the lead. The Spaniard made a good start, and was two-under-par early on. He then dropped a shot at six and followed that with four-pars then a bogey. He did get two back at 13 and 15. However, a slip up at 16 leaves him outside the top-50.
