In his early years, he repeatedly gripped, released, and regripped his hands on the club handle before finally taking a shot.
When García first turned professional, he had an unorthodox swing with a circular loop and long large lag, and this method drew comparisons to Ben Hogan, one of the best players of all time.
But during the 2003 season, he worked towards making his swing more conventional, but has largely kept his original method.
As a player, he is particularly noted for his strong iron play and accuracy.
To date he has not won any of golf's major championships, despite a number of near misses.
He held the lead after each one of the first three rounds and carried a three-shot lead over Steve Stricker and a six-shot lead over the rest of the field into the start of the fourth day.
At an early stage of the last round, García had extended his lead to four shots, but bogeys at the 5th, 7th, and 8th holes brought him back to the field.Four years later, he set a record as the youngest player to make the cut at a European Tour event, the 1995 Turespaña Open Mediterranea.This record was broken by amateur Jason Hak in November 2008 at the UBS Hong Kong Open, beating García's record by 107 days.", and some people audibly counted the number of regrips into the twenties. Responding to criticism of his swing, he said, "My swing works for me, so why should I change it?I prefer to have a natural swing and play well rather than a perfect swing and not be able to play good." At the age of 21, García won his first PGA Tour event at the 2001 Master Card Colonial in Fort Worth, Texas, and then won again at the Buick Classic in New York the same year.Sergio García Fernández (born 9 January 1980) is a professional golfer from Spain who plays on both the PGA Tour and the European Tour.
