What I'll be Watching Friday at WGC-CA Championship

Posted at 7:29 PM by Michael Bamberger | Categories: WGC-CA Championship

It must be frustrating being Sergio Garcia. Hold it, what am I saying? He's a multi-millionaire, eligible bachelor, gifted athlete, fluent in at least two languages and he's got everything ahead of him. His golf, though, must frusrate him at times. All the better European caddies will tell you that nobody hits irons better than this guy, and he drives it a mile and often in play. For him to shoot 70 at Doral on Thursday is like somebody else shooting 80. It's all about putting, and putting, to some degree, is about mental toughness, and, in my opinion, mental toughness is his only weakness. (Although he thrives in Ryder Cup play in that department.) What will Sergio do on Friday, mail it in and miss the cut and regroup on some course that has bigger holes? What? There is no cut at Doral? OK, he'll be playing for three more rounds.

When Tiger's bad round is Thursday he just gets better and better as the tournament continues. Sergio needs to take a page from that if he ever really wants to challenge Tiger as the best player in the world. On Friday, we'll get a little glimpse into his heart and soul.
