Sergio Garcia: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
The main question entering every season for Garcia is whether or not he'll ever get that elusive major. He's stated that he doesn't think he will, but perhaps that was just a way to take some of the pressure off. Professional golf is littered with players that won a major after everyone gave up on them and Garcia could easily be one of those players. Regardless of the major situation, Garcia continues to be productive and he should again have another solid season in 2014. His upside is questionable, but at just over $2 million, he should get a look. In draft leagues he could go higher than he should because of name recognition, but he should be going in the 25-35 range.
The year was 2008 and Sergio Garcia was about to ascend to the top of the golf world. He was coming off a season where he won the Players Championship and earned nearly $5 million. Then the calendar turned to 2009 and suddenly Garcia lost his game. Although he earned plenty of money the next three years, he was unquestionably in a slump - until August last season when Garcia again entered the winner's circle. Garcia played well in small little spurts during the previous three years and even finished with a top-5 in his first event of 2012, but this was different. For the first time in a while, it felt like the old Sergio was back. He nearly won the following week and finished the season well enough to make us believe that he indeed is back. If that's the case, then he's a must-have at this price. If not, he should return a at least a similar price - unless he goes into a three-year hibernation again. In draft leagues, Garcia will probably go higher than he should because of his name, but anything higher than the third round is probably too early.
Garcia had a very interesting 2011 season. He collected only thee Top-10s in 16 starts but missed only one cut. In those 15 cuts made, he finished in the Top 40 all but once. In sum, he played well enough to make the cut nearly every week and played well enough to stay within the Top 40 most weeks, but he rarely cracked the Top 10. All of which led to a middle-of-the-pack spot on the money list. Garcia's consistency vaults him up the draft board. In golf, you want opportunities to win, and when you make cuts and play well on the weekend, you give yourself the best opportunity to win. Garcia is too talented to keep out of the winner's circle and should find himself back there at some point this season. In draft leagues, he should go somewhere in the third round.
Last season was supposed to be the rebound year for Garcia, but that obviously did not happen. After a very disappointing 2009, many expected Garcia to turn things around in 2010, but instead, his play worsened. He played the minimum required to retain his PGA TOUR privileges, but that likely was due to his dismay at his game. Garcia is simply too talented to continue down this path. While a repeat of his 2008 season when he won the Players Championship is not likely, he should climb back to relevancy this season. Garcia is long off the tee, but he hasn't done much of anything else well the last two years. When he's on, his GIR is pretty solid.
Though Garcia struggled a little bit in 2009, there is no reason to think that Garcia won't rebound in 2010 because he is simply too talented not to. Don't forget, Garcia has earned more than $3 million in three of the his five seasons, and he nearly cracked $5 million in 2008. Garcia will likely be a great value pick this season. Garcia, who finished 2008 being ranked #2, slipped to 11th in the final 2009 Official World Golf Rankings.
Garcia is a tough call in regards to the 2009 season. He only won once last year, so it would appear that there is plenty of upside on his $4.8 number from last year. However, he finished runner-up at two majors and the tourny he won earned him $1.7 million, making it difficult to top his number from last year. Garcia has tremendous potential, but he doesn't play enough on the PGA Tour, and he's failed to show the consistency that would allow him to break into the $6 million range.
2007 was a memorable year for Sergio Garcia, and not for the reasons he would like. Garcia will be best remembered for coming oh so close at the British Open. In fact he was one of a few players that had the opportunity to win, but let it slip away. As a whole, the 2007 season was actually pretty productive though. His earnings were much higher than the previous years, and his game seems to be in pretty good shape. The sky is the limit for Garcia, but much like Mickelson, Garcia won't reach that potential until he wins that first major.
Perhaps the most disappointing player from the 2006 season. Garcia ended 2006 with no victories and only two top-5s. We've come to expect more from Sergio than that. The good news for those in salary cap leagues is you can get a steal here. Heck, for any league where his value is perceived to be 49th on the PGA Tour, you are getting a steal. Garcia is not the type of player who will sit back and wait for things to turn around on their own. He'll figure out what he's doing wrong and fix it.
Here's a perfect example of potential upside from a player. You can spend $3.2 million for either Garcia or Bart Bryant; who are you going to pick? Garcia, like Goosen, doesn't play over here quite as much, but two more events can make a world of difference. We have yet to see the best Garcia has to offer, and everyone should take a long look at Garcia each year. This year's price tag is a little steep, but he should be worth it. At worst, he should match the earnings from last year. At best, he could reach the $5 million mark. That's a nice upside.
Garcia's bad year in 2003 was clearly the fault of the putter. He ranked below 170th on Tour in 2003 and was able to improve to 129th last year. That ranking is not great, but it was enough to improve on his 2003 earnings by over $2.5 million. Now here's the kicker: Garcia has proven himself to be a pretty good putter throughout his career, only recently has the putter failed him. If last year is the beginning of a trend and his putter is on the way back, then 2005 could be a great year for Garcia. It took a while for Garcia to get his swing back, next he figures out the putter and has an even better year in 2005.
Garcia passed the 20-tournament mark for the second year in a row in 2003. That's the good news. The bad is that his game fell apart on him and he finished 95th on the Money List. He's retooled his swing (the learning curve being part of the reason for the drop in performance) and showed signs of life later in the year. He has to be a little better in 2004.
