Sergio Garcia Wins The 2008 Players Championship

I didn't have him in any of my Fantasy Golf Leagues (I kinda wish I had) but Sergio finally didn't choke in a final round of a tournament especially one like the 5th Major and he sealed the deal over Paul Goydos.

He led the field in fairways hit (43-of-56) despite crazy high winds that produced white caps on the many ponds and lakes on the course. He tied for first in greens in regulation (56-of-72) despite rock-hard surfaces that repelled golf balls constantly.

He definitely deserved the win. Garcia becomes just the second European to win the Players Championship. The victory was the seventh of his career and the first in 54 starts since his last win in 2005.
