Garcia still keen to break major duck
Ahead of his kicking off his European Tour season for 2017, Sergio Garcia revealed he has still not lost the desire to win a major.
The Spaniard is arguably the most successful golfer to have never tasted major glory. Garcia has come close on a number of occasions, with 12 top five finishes four of those as a runner up.
Nonetheless, after 18-years as a professional, the hunger is still there…
"The hunger is still there," confirmed the 37-year-old on europeantour.com.
"I still want to keep achieving things. I still want to keep becoming a better golfer when it comes down to my career.
"I think that fortunately for me, I'm still in good shape. Physically I'm still doing well. I've been able to avoid injuries for pretty much my whole career, so that's always a positive.
"I'm excited to keep improving, keep giving myself chances at winning tournaments, winning majors and then just give the best that I have got in me.
Garcia has won at least one tournament every year since 2011 and this week he’s looking to get 2017 off to good start at the Omega Dubai Desert Classic this week.
"I am obviously very excited to be back in Dubai," added the world number 15.
"The course looks great and the weather's great. So we're enjoying it as much as possible. The forecast is for some strong winds throughout the week. I've always enjoyed challenging conditions and if the high winds come, it will be challenging. I think it plays probably to my strengths."
The Omega Dubai Desert Classic tees off at the Emirates Golf Club in Dubai on Thursday.
