Sergio Garcia's PGA Championship pain could become even worse with Barclays win
PARAMUS, N.J. - Sergio Garcia finds himself holding the lead in another golf tournament coming down the back nine. If Garcia pulls out the win in the first event of the second FedEx Cup many will say and write that this has to make Garcia feel better about the PGA Championship.
If you really think about it though, it might make the PGA sting even worse.
For it’s obvious this week at The Barclays that no one’s playing more consistent good golf this late season than Sergio. Padraig Harrington’s back-to-back majors hangover had him missing the cut completely. Phil Mickelson is still more relevant in those Crown Plaza commercials than anywhere else these days. Kenny Perry is the biggest wimp in all of golf, one who is going to be completely rolled over by whichever Euro plays him in the Ryder Cup.
Sergio is three holes at Oakland Hills away from being considered the dominant figure in a Tiger Woods-missing world.
In some ways, a win today would only drive home even more what he gave up two weeks ago.
Of course, if he loses now - even with 11 other golfers within two shots of the lead - there will be more choking talk. Which again, was ridiculous at the PGA, considering the great shot Garcia hit right after he found water on 16 and the 3-under 68 he shot on a major Sunday.
Sometimes being Sergo Garcia means you cannot win. Maybe even if you do.
