Sergio Garcia broke his year-long title drought on Sunday, shooting a four-under 68 in the final round to seal his victory at the Thailand Golf Championship.

The 33-year-old, who last won at the Johor Open in Malaysia in December 2012, finished the tournament at a whopping 22-under, besting Henrik Stenson, the second-place finisher, by four strokes. Levy Alexander finished in third at 14-under.

Garcia told reporters afterwards that having his girlfriend caddie for him was a great experience. He also tipped his hat to Stenson’s strong performance:

It was great, an amazing week… obviously being the last week of the year and for having Katharina (Boehm) caddie for me.

 

I knew Henrik was going to make it difficult for me. He’s been playing so amazingly great, and he did. He kept hitting good shot after good shot (Reuters).

Garcia turned in the highlight of the tournament on Friday, knocking in a hole-in-one are the par-three eighth hole. In case you missed it, check out the video here.
