Garcia: ‘I’m Not Capable Of Winning A Major’April 8th, 2012 4:41 pm Associated Press
AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) — Sergio Garcia says he no longer believes he’s capable of winning a major.
The Spaniard went into Saturday’s third round at the Masters a stroke behind the leaders. But he took himself out of contention with a 3-over 75 that left him eight strokes back.
Afterward, Garcia told Spanish media he’s “not good enough and today I know it. I’ve been trying for 13 years and I don’t feel capable of winning. … I don’t know what happened to me. Maybe it’s something psychological.”
Just 19 when he finished second at the 1999 PGA Championship after a spectacular showdown with Tiger Woods, Garcia was expected to challenge the American for the title of best player of their generation. But he’s on the verge of going 0-for-54 in majors.
