Biography:

Sergio Garcia is a Spanish professional golfer who gained his professional status after accumulating an astounding twenty-one amateur victories. Sergio was dubbed El Nino at an early age after he fired his first sub-70 round at the Mediterraneo Club Championship in 1992. Since then, he has won over twenty international tournaments and spent a lot of his career in the top ten of the Official World Golf Ranking.

In 1995, Sports Speaker Sergio became the first player to win the European Amateur. In 1997, he followed that by winning the Boys Amateur Championship and the Catalonian Open. He took home The Amateur Championship and reached the semi-finals of the U.S. Amateur in 1998.

Sergio made his professional debut in 1999 after shooting the lowest amateur score at the Masters Tournament. Shortly after, he achieved worldwide fame at the PGA Championship in a duel against one of the most successful golfers of all time, Tiger Woods. Although Sergio became the youngest participant to compete during the PGA Championship in Illinois and lost by a single stroke, he hit his most famous shot late in the final round. His ball was up against a tree trunk with the green hidden from sight on the sixteenth hole. Sergio blindly swung and hit a low curving fade onto the green.

He snagged a win at the Murphy’s Irish Open becoming the fourth youngest winner to ever win on the European Tour. Altogether, he took home six wins his first year as a professional golfer. He was awarded the Sir Henry Cotton Rookie of the Year Award and was invited to participate for the European Ryder team and the Alfred Dunhill Cup Spanish team.

Sergio is noted for his accuracy, strong iron play and his unorthodox swing consisting of a circular loop and long large lag similar to golf legend Ben Hogan.

Sergio is an avid supporter of charities. He supports Youth/Children and Growth of the Game. In 2002, he established Sergio’s Foundation, a charity that helps the less fortunate through several charitable initiatives around the world. The Foundation has helped improve many children and young adults lives by funding numerous cancer and MS research studies and also organizing golf clinics for the disabled so they can learn how to play with their disabilities.
