Sergio Garcia wins 2020 Sanderson Farms Championship
On the final day of the PGA Tour’s 2020 Sanderson Farms Championship, the Spanish professional golfer Sergio Garcia shot a round of 67 to claim his 11th victory on TOUR.
Sergio Garcia had gone just more than a year since his last victory, which felt even longer considering he failed to make the FedEx Cup playoffs and fell out of the top 50 in the world for the first time since 2011.
India’s Anirban Lahiri witnesses a rollercoaster ride after the magical 2 days in the event.
The 33-year-old Indian golfer, who once enjoying in top 10 at the country club of Jackson, shots a 3-under-69 in the final round to settle at T-37 position in the Sanderson Farms Championship.
It was Garcia’s first PGA Tour victory since he won the Masters in 2017 with a back-nine rally highlighted by an 8-iron that glanced off the pin on the 15th and set up an eagle. He eventually beat Justin Rose in a playoff.
“This time it was an 8-iron on 18, and to almost hit the pain again and hit it that close, it was a dream come true," he said.
“A boost of confidence, there's no doubt,” Garcia said. “Every time you play well, even if I would have not won it, it still would have been a massive high for me this week. To be able to do a lot of the things that I did, it meant a lot. It showed me a lot of what I still have and what I still can do.”
