In my mind, Sergio Garcia’s name is synonymous with the Ryder Cup. He lives and loves the biennial team matches. Name another player who shows more passion and intensity, not to mention has better cheerleading skills? Yeah, exactly.
Garcia was previously inside the European/World points list (Team Europe has a different qualifying system than the U.S.) before Ian Poulter went nuts in the final round of the PGA Championship to place T3, and surpass the Spaniard.
The automatic spots aren’t finalized until after this week’s Johnnie Walker Championship at Gleneagles in Scotland, but Sergio is likely to lock up a berth with his clutch performance at the Wyndham Championship–which will be completed on Monday due to the great flood unexpectedly sweeping through Greensboro on Sunday.
