Garcia: If it happens, it happens

Home

Spanish golfer Sergio Garcia says there is ‘no monkey on his back’ heading into the final day of the US Open on Sunday at Oakmont.

Garcia is three shots behind leader Shane Lowry after darkness suspended play with four holes of his third round left to play. 

The Spaniard said he is feeling no added pressure heading into the final round with the likes of Lowry, Dustin Johnson, Lee Westwood and Branden Grace near the top of the leader board.

“No, there’s no monkeys – that’s nonsense,” Garcia told media afterwards. “At the end of the day, the only thing I can do is give myself chances. Play well. And if it happens, it happens.

“I don’t know, you know. I will only know the day that it happens. So it is easy for me to stand here and tell you it will mean this or that, but until it happens, you never know. 

"But I’m happy with the way I managed and I’m excited about tomorrow,” he added.

The US Open will conclude on Sunday, and you can still back your favourite with Grandplay.
