Sergio Garcia unsure on FedExCup

2014 07 452274124

Sergio Garcia is ranked 16th in the FedExCup standings, but the runner-up in this year’s Open has cast doubts over his participation in the end of season play-offs.


Speaking ahead of this week’s WGC-Bridgestone Invitational at Firestone, the 34-year-old suggested he may skip the PGA Tour’s season finale to concentrate on being ready for the Ryder Cup.

“It's still early to say, but with the Ryder Cup being so close after it, probably not, if everything goes according to plan,” said the Spaniard.

“I want to make sure that I feel nice and as fresh as possible for the Ryder Cup, even though there's a lot of great tournaments.”

Garcia has had a great year thus far, with four top five finishes and two more top tens on American soil this season.

Currently, the world No.5 is on course for his best ever finish since 2008 in the FedExCup since - where he finished 12th.

Last year Sergio Garcia posted a fourth place finish at the Deutsche Bank Championship and came in ninth place at the Tour Championship. Despite his good finish last time around he remains pessimistic.

“I don't want to be playing six out of seven weeks going into the Ryder Cup,” he maintained.

A veteran of six Ryder Cups, and winner of four, Sergio Garcia believes the European style of playing more team events as an amateur helps players ready themselves for the Ryder Cup environment.

“In Europe, we play foursomes. We play fourballs. We play individual matches. We play probably a lot more matchplay tournaments as an amateur than maybe they do here in the US,” said the 2008 Players champion.
"I feel like in Europe things are maybe a little bit more relaxed." - Sergio Garcia

“I think we seem to gel nicely. We feel very, very comfortable with each other's company when we play on team events.

“That probably makes it a little bit easier for your partner to feel comfortable and play the best.

“Honestly, I feel like in Europe things are maybe a little bit more relaxed when it comes down to that.”
