Sergio Garcia’s Ryder Cup Future in Jeopardy

One of the most accomplished Ryder Cup players ever, Sergio Garcia is unsure about his participation in the next edition of the USA vs. Europe golf event.

The Ryder Cup is arguably the most significant team event in the history of the sport. Many players have represented either the USA or Europe over the 100 years of history of this event. But even among such a huge number of prominent golfers, one name stands out and that is Sergio Garcia.

Garcia is regarded as one of the best Ryder Cup players for Team Europe. In his career, he participated in 10 of the 11 Ryder Cup events and earned a record 28.5 points. Due to such success, he is considered an inseparable part of Team of Europe in every USA vs Europe event.

However, his future in the prestigious event is deemed to be in jeopardy following his defection to LIV golf. A player must participate in four DP World Tour tournaments to be eligible for Ryder Cup. Due to complications with the PGA and European Tour regarding his switch to LIV, the Spaniard managed to play in only three of them. 

Even if Garcia somehow managed to play in the upcoming Mallorca Open and fulfilled the criteria of playing in four events, he might still miss out on the Ryder Cup. PGA and LIV are fighting a lawsuit. And if things go PGA’s way in the court, they might ban the players who opted for the Saudi-backed tour.

Sergio Garcia is one of the biggest names to defect to LIV. As a result, the ongoing conflict between the two rival tours is certain to affect his Ryder Cup future one way or another. While the fans hope to see Garcia back in Team Europe, the future remains uncertain.
