Sergio Garcia’s Ryder Cup Outlook

Best asset: Experience and leadership. Let’s face it: There are only a few reasons why Garcia was named as a captain’s pick, and these are two of ‘em. With Garcia mired in an utterly lost season, Thomas Bjorn is hoping the Spaniard finds something this week.

Worst asset: Recent form. And that’s “recent” as in all year. Last year’s Masters champion has appeared a mediocre shell of himself for months.

Ryder Cup Confidence Rating: 3 out of 10. A wise man once said that a Ryder Cup is no place to try and find your game. Until Garcia shows some sort of form, he could be dead weight for the European side.
