Sergio Garcia wins first title of year at Thailand Golf Championship
Johannesburg: Spaniard Sergio Garcia carded a final-round 68 to cruise to a four-stroke win at the Thailand Golf Championship on Sunday for his first title of the year, according to reports.
According to Sport24, Garcia, 33, combined six birdies with two bogeys during the final round at the Amata Spring Country Club for a four-day total of 22-under-par 266 in the 1 million-dollar Asian Tour event.
World number three Swede Henrik Stenson also shot a 68 with five birdies and a bogey to finish second but never managed to put Garcia under serious pressure, the report said.
Stenson, the first man to win the U.S. Tour`s lucrative FedExCup series and the European money list double in 2013, had halved Garcia`s overnight lead to two on the turn but the Spaniard put paid to his hopes by sinking three consecutive birdies from the 10th, the report added.
