LIV Golf star Sergio Garcia is one of the most recognised golfers in the world, so who is his coach?

The Spaniard – Europe’s record Ryder Cup points scorer – turned professional in 1999 and the rest is history.

In a glittering career, Garcia, from Borriol, Castellón, has amassed over ten PGA and DP World Tour wins, as well as becoming a Masters champion.

It all started when Garcia was a young boy and, despite working with some of the best coaches in golf, one man close to him crafted the champion’s swing.

Garcia’s coach is none other than his father Victor Garcia. He began playing golf at three and was taught by the club professional.

Attached to Club de Campo del Mediterraneo, Sergio Garcia’s coach has been a respected professional in Spain for many years.

As the main driving force and coach behind Sergio’s career, he has passed his knowledge to Sergio and many other players at the highest level.

Through his coaching, Victor has worked with players on the PGA Tour, DP World Tour and Challenge Tour, as well as with promising amateurs.

He is the Master Instructor at the Sergio Garcia Golf Academy, and his methods are summarised on the institute’s website.

“He has spent many years observing players from the world’s elite in all kinds of tournaments around the world,” it reads.

• Who is Rory McIlroy’s coach?

“His knowledge of golf has taught him to transmit a philosophy based on the swing a player has and the natural movements he/she develops.

“Teach to play with the tools that each player possesses and not by implanting unnatural movements and gestures to the player.”

Born in 1950, Garcia’s coach played on the European Seniors Tour as recently as 2019 after playing in numerous events since 2001.

Meanwhile, Garcia has also worked prominently with legendary coach Pete Cowen throughout his career.

The Englishman has coached other European greats in the form of Lee Westwood, Thomas Bjorn, Darren Clarke, Henrik Stenson and Matthew Fitzpatrick.
