GREENSBORO, N.C. — Rainy weather left Sergio Garcia stuck in central North Carolina for an extra day. Turns out it was worth the hassle — because he’s leaving with his first PGA Tour victory in four years.
Garcia claimed a 2-stroke win Monday in the water-logged Wyndham Championship for his first victory on tour since the 2008 Players Championship.
He finished with a 66 to wind up at 18-under 262, claim $936,000 in prize money and maybe seal a spot on the European Ryder Cup team.
“I think there were a lot of things going on. It shows a lot to me,” Garcia said. “Hopefully, this will secure my spot on the Ryder Cup team, and winning is always nice.”
