Poor Sergio! 'Unfortunate' Garcia makes five birdies and eagle

Most Tour pros would be happy to make four birdies and an eagle on the front nine. Then again, Sergio Garcia isn't like most Tour pros.

Playing the back nine first, Garcia made birdies on Nos. 10, 13, 16 and 17 and an eagle on 18 in the second round of the Omega Dubai Desert Classic en route to a five-under-par 67. Afterward, he sounded crestfallen since those low numbers meant he would have to continue playing with a sore shoulder, according to Reuters. Garcia is currently tied for eighth, three shots behind leader Richard Sterne.

"On the 14th green I told my caddie if it does not get any better after 18 (his ninth hole) we will probably walk," Garcia told reporters.

"Then unfortunately we started making birdies and eagle and I thought 'What do we do now?'

"I got the physio out and he worked on it. It feels a little bit better, but needs to get better."
