Sergio Garcia is a name that everyone who follows golf has heard of. He is among the top golfers. The 16-time European Tour champion frequently enthralled the golfing community with his displays. However, a wave of controversy has been hanging over the Spaniard recently. The DP World Tour fined him for breaking their tournament rules after he joined LIV Golf last summer.
The 43-year-old also did not participate in the prestigious PGA Championship and was not able to deliver the magic on the course. In the midst of these chaotic rides, Garcia is giving his best to qualify for the U.S. Open. And with his tactics, he not only mesmerized the spectators, but also a fellow golfer.

Recently, Dan Rapaport shared a screenshot of Scott Harrington’s chat on his official Twitter account. The caption on the post reads: “From Scott Harrington, who played with Sergio yesterday when he grinded through the 36-hole sectional qualifier to make the U.S. Open. Pretty cool to see a pro who’s been around so long so impressed by one of his peers.”
Harrington talked about how Sergio Garcia and he played together at the 36-hole sectional qualifier to make the U.S. Open. Even though there were barely 40–50 people present, Garcia was playing to the best of his abilities. Harrington claimed that the game was really intense throughout and that he was completely taken aback by Sergio Garcia’s incredible ability to flush the ball. Harrington and Garcia had never previously played together. And Garcia’s putting and shot-making techniques impressed him the most.
It’s also every golfer’s dream to play with the legend himself, Tiger Woods. Harrington is no exception. In addition, he brought up Woods in the conversation and said he had never played with the GOAT.
