Sergio Garcia is a man of many talents. When he’s not playing golf, he often gets involved in other forms of competitions. During his self-imposed break in 2010, the Spaniard made his debut playing for hometown club CF Borriol — which he happens to own and serve as president — and he’s also trained with pro clubs when the opportunity has struck.
