Garcia to build on momentum
Last updated: 30th January 2013
World number 14 Sergio Garcia said he was not perturbed by his narrow miss at the Qatar Masters last weekend.
Garcia and South African George Coetzee lost by one shot against Chris Wood at the Qatar Masters.
Wood, trailing by one shot on the final hole, sunk an Eagle to secure what had originally appeared to be an unlikely victory.
If anything, Garcia hopes to build on the momentum gained at last week's tournament, when he plays at the Dubai Desert Classic this week.
"The only thing I could be disappointed with is not making it to the play-off. But, when you get beaten like George and I did, there's nothing you can really be sad about," said Garcia.
"If we had parred the last or even bogeyed the last, then you can be a little bit disappointed. George and I both birdied the last, and Chris came back and just made a great eagle on 18. When you get beaten like that, there's nothing to be disappointed about," added Garcia.
Garcia, who has never finished higher than 11th at the Dubai Desert Classic, said he would not be deterred by past experiences at this tournament.
"I do like the course," said the Spaniard.
"I've played okay for the most part here so I'm looking forward to it. Obviously coming off a good week last week I'm hoping to keep those good feelings going and hopefully I'll have another chance on the weekend like I did last week," he added.
