Garcia gearing up for Olympics
Sergio Garcia has revealed that he is looking forward to representing his country at the upcoming Rio Olympic Games.
The Spaniard is riding high following his win at Byron Nelson on Sunday, where he edged Brooks Koepka in a playoff to earn his ninth win on the PGA Tour and first since 2012.
However, for Garcia, this seems to pale in comparison to participating at the global showpiece in Rio in August, and you'll be able to back the Spaniard in the upcoming Olympic betting odds.
"I couldn't be more proud of representing my country," the 36-year-old told asiantour.com.
"The players who preceded me never had this opportunity and I wish to thank all those that made it possible.
"My father taught me that besides playing well and trying to win tournaments, I must try to leave a little something to make things better. When I retire, I hope to have given my small contribution to golf."
Garcia added that he is excited about staying in the Olympic Village full of superstars.
"I don't know the feeling of actually being in the Games, but I am a big fan and I follow them on TV," he said.
"I am looking forward to the experience of living at the Olympic Village. These might be my last games, so I want to live them fully. The opening ceremony and actually meeting the athletes that I admire on TV will be awesome."
