Sergio Garcia worried about persistent hand injury

Garcia hopes to be fully fit to compete in the Abu Dhabi Golf Championship

Sergio Garcia will seek a specialist's advice after revealing he is still troubled by the hand injury that has kept him from playing for three weeks.

The Spaniard suffered a sprain in the third round of last month's Dubai World Championship, where he came seventh.

And Garcia said he still feels pain in his right hand.

"The hand is not well, it's not healing as fast as we thought it would. Even with the rest it's not better and we're a little bit worried," he said.

Garcia, 29, won one tournament and earned £1.66m in prize money in 2009.


He now hopes to shake off his hand problem in time to compete in the £2.3m Abu Dhabi Golf Championship, which runs from 21-24 January.

"I've tried to swing and I can't," he said. "(But) I'd like to start the tournament at Abu Dhabi completely healed."
