The Spaniard is the most popular name in golfing in the country and one of the most popular worldwide at the moment as far as lovers and followers of golf are concerned. Here is everything you need to know about the 2008 Players Championship champion.

Sergio Garcia Biography

It was in Castellon, Spain on 9 January 1980 that the man was born as Sergio García Fernández. He was raised in the Spanish town of Borriol in a family of three children as the second child. Interestingly enough, since the age of 2, he started having his romance with golf which was inspired by his father who was a lover of the sports.

Victor Garcia, his father, likewise raised Sergio’s 2 other siblings, an elder brother, Victor Garcia (Jr.) and his sister Mar to love the game. While his brother worked in a golf club and attended his college thanks to a golf scholarship, the other two went on to play the game, but it was Sergio that had the greater talent.

Apart from the love of the game of golf, Victor Garcia who lived very close to Valencia ensured that his family was raised in the most proper and traditional way as possible. He emphasized values such as humility and hard work. This would go on to show in the lives of his children.

Sergio Garcia on his part has spent almost all his life playing the game he loves greatly. At a very young age, he took on members of his father’s golf club and his reward was either Coke or ice cream. By the time he was 12, El Nino, as he was known, became popular as a long hitter.

1994 saw the youngster winning the Topolino World Junior Championship and then in 1995, he took home the Orange Bowl International Junior Golf Championship in Miami. That was his first appearance in the US. This was soon to be followed by another victory but this time it was in the European Tour at the Turespana Open. With that, he became the youngest player to make a cut therein. He went on to become the youngest champion of the European Amateur and again he won the European Young Masters Championship.

Before 2000, Sergio Garcia had appeared in many other tournaments making a good show and opening him up for a professional golfing career. This is even as he once hoped as a kid that he would grow up and play soccer for Real Madrid. His love for football is still strong as he is the Chairman of the Spanish football team CF Borriol.

As a professional golfer, Sergio Garcia has recorded 14 European Tour, 10 PGA Tour, 6 Asian Tour, and a Japan Golf Tour among other championships. On his journey to becoming the youngest player ever to compete in the Ryder Cup, his first real prominence came when he went up against Tiger Woods in the PGA Championship in 1999. Although he didn’t win, he made a very good show after losing by just a stroke.

Throughout his career, the man has won many awards including the Sir Henry Cotton Rookie of the Year as far back as 1999. In 2008, Garcia was awarded the Vardon Trophy as well as the Byron Nelson Award, and in 2017 he was named the European Tour Golfer of the Year.

Sergio Family – Wife, Fiancé or Girlfriend, Is He Married?

The Golf star has enjoyed his own fair share of relationships thus far. The first woman he was linked to is Martina Hingis. Sergio and the Swiss former professional tennis player dated between 2001 and 2002 before they finally call it quits.

He also dated Australian actress Katharina Boehm, before they broke up sometime in 2015. That was 2 years into their dating as they were said to have started dating in 2013. Their relationship got a little serious that many were expecting them to get married after it emerged that the golfer engaged the woman. That, however, was not to be.

A step back in time, Garcia’s girlfriend as at 2006 was Morgan-Leigh Norman, who is the daughter of another great golfer, Greg Norman. Garcia and the beautiful woman who has gone on to marry Chris Dillavou in 2012 didn’t survive together beyond 2009 when they parted ways. Talking about the relationship, he revealed that losing her was really hurtful.
