Sergio Garcia Re-Enters the Top 10 with Win at Qatar Masters

Sergio Garcia Re-Enters the Top 10 with Win at Qatar Masters
Spain’s Sergio Garcia earned his second win in three tournaments at the Qatar Masters on Saturday. Elevating the TaylorMade player to number 9 in the world and marking his return to the top 10 for the first time in over four years.
Garcia achieved his latest victory over Finland’s Mikko Ilonen on the third playoff hole during the tournament’s final round on Saturday. Giving the 34-year-old his 11th career European Tour title.
Playing with TaylorMade’s SLDR Driver, Garcia opted to increase the loft up one degree more than his previous driver to benefit from the club’s low-spin performance and design.  Helping the player finish the tournament at an impressive 16-under-par.
“I started the day thinking if I can shoot a 6 or 7 under, I can have a chance.  I'm very happy to be able to win it,” Garcia said afterwards.
It has been a long and bumpy road at times for Garcia. But since winning the Thailand Golf Championship at the end of 2013, the golfer looks more comfortable and focused on the course.    
“When things off the golf course are on good terms it is a little easier to concentrate when you don't have too many things in your head,” Garcia said. “I am very fortunate with Kathy and with my family and all those around me, so it's great to be playing well and to be in this winning situation with the goal now to keep improving.”
