One of the most electric players in the game won’t be playing the final three rounds of the European Tour’s BMW PGA Championship. Sergio Garcia managed to finish his first round at one-over 73, but had to withdraw from the tournament due to a knee injury.
I wish I wouldn’t had to withdraw from this great tournament. My knee is bothering me again. Have a doctor’s appointment tomorrow morning!

It is tough to see Sergio withdraw because he is playing excellent golf, and the sport needs him to preform. However, the knee injury must be bothering him because Sergio is a true competitor who wants to tee it up with the best players in the world.
Garcia is currently ranked No. 7 in the World Golf Rankings.
He won the Commercial Bank Qatar Masters in a playoff over Mikko Ilonen in January, and finished third at The Players. Garcia has a good chance of breaking through for his first win at a major this season, and golf fans are hoping for a speedy recovery.
The U.S. Open is only three weeks away and the game’s top players are all making sure they are peaking at the right time.
Garcia will be more concerned with his health, which may keep his mind off the pressure of competing in the toughest major of the year.
