Garcia: Ryder Cup not won with words
Sergio Garcia has responded to Johnny Miller's harsh criticism ahead of the Ryder Cup, which tees off on Friday.
Miller, a former major winner and now golf commentator, labeled Team Europe as "the worst team they've had in many years…"
The fact that captain Darren Clarke has no less than six rookies in his team perhaps spurred on Miller's comment.
Nonetheless, Garcia – a veteran of seven Ryder Cups – was unperturbed by the two-time majors winner's words and indicated that the team will do their talking on the Hazeltine course rather than in the media.
"You don't win Ryder Cups with your mouth," the 36-year-old told Sky Sports.
"You win them out there on the golf course. So that's what we'll see, which team is the best.
"Johnny says a lot of things. Obviously he's not always going to say the right thing.
"You know what they say, opinions are like…we all have one. So everybody's allowed to have their own opinion, and that's what they think, and that's great for them."
Team Europe are hunting a fourth consecutive Ryder Cup title at Hazeltine Country Club this weekend.
