Truth & Rumors: Sergio Garcia 'wished' for Kaymer to sink clinching Cup putt

When you wish upon a par...

We can hear it now. The Disney theme song to Europe's fairytale Ryder Cup ending. And all because Sergio Garcia wished on Sunday morning that Martin Kaymer would make the clinching putt, according to Reuters.

Here's what Garcia said:

"The night before the singles Olazabal and myself had a very good conversation with Martin," said world number 19 Garcia in a European Tour news release.

"Then on Sunday I was having breakfast with Martin and I said to him if I had a wish it would be for him to hole the putt which meant Europe kept the Ryder Cup."

That's all it took. A little of Sergio's Tinkerbelle magic. And America's spastic fear of the Medinah's 17th hole.
