Sergio Garcia
GARCIA PROFILE
Sergio Garcia
Age: 26
Country: Spain
Ryder Cup caps: 3 (1999, 2002 winners, 2004 w)
Record: W10, H2, L3
Position qualified: 3rd

The dashing Spaniard is still only 26 but his fourth Ryder Cup cap is testament to his impact on world golf.

Garcia's infectious enthusiasm for the team event makes him a valuable member, and he is a heavy points scorer with 10 wins and two halves from 15 matches.

He achieved his first singles win in 2004 and what a scalp - a 3&2 victory over American hot-shot Phil Mickelson.

Garcia, the world number eight, has posted a host of top 10s this year, including third at the USPGA.

But he became another casualty of Tiger Woods when he wilted the alongside the world number one in the final group at the Open at Hoylake.

Garcia made his Ryder Cup debut at 19 in the tumultuous atmosphere of Brookline where he forged an unbeatable team in four matches with Jesper Parnevik.

He also bonded well with England's Lee Westwood at The Belfry in 2002, winning three out of their four matches together.

And he amassed four-and-a-half points out of five two years ago, playing foursomes with Luke Donald and fourballs with Westwood.

Did you know? Sergio Garcia was the youngest player ever to appear in the Ryder Cup when he played at Brookline aged 19 years, eight months, 15 days in 1999.
