Sergio Garcia ‘Worried’ About Injured Hand
“THE HAND IS NOT WELL,” Sergio Garcia told The Associated Press in a story that published today at GolfChannel.com.
“I haven’t played for three weeks and I still feel pain. It’s not healing as fast as we thought it would. What’s clear is that even with the rest it’s not better and we’re a little bit worried.”
So Sergio, the world’s 11th best golfer, will see a specialist in hopes that he can make his 2010 debut at the Abu Dhabi Golf Championship on January 21. The Spaniard sprained his right wrist in the third round of the Dubai World Championship. He went on to finish seventh, but the hand hasn’t been without pain since the season-ending event.
“I’ve tried to swing and I can’t,” said Sergio, who won once in 2009 and banked $2.4 million in his 11th season as a tour professional.
