Shots to remember
Sergio Garcia at The Belfry
The young Spaniard seems at home at the Ryder Cup

Sergio Garcia was the only one brave enough to take on the 10th at the Belfry on the opening day.

How Garcia went for broke at the 10th

He decided to go for the green from the tee, and duly gave it his all with his weighty driver.

But his ball missed by a yard, instead splashing into the hole's infamous watery surroundings.

However, his reaction was even more telling.

Initially frustrated, he held his hands up in anguish, leaning back as his club span to the ground.

Commentating on BBC TV at the time, Peter Alliss said: "You'll be alright son."

And so he was. Garcia picked himself up to halve the hole in four, and went on to win both matches on Friday.
