Tour Report: How has Sergio fared with lead?

Mike McAllister

FARMINGDALE, N.Y. – For the ninth time in his PGA TOUR career, Sergio Garcia enters the final round with at least a share of the lead.

He tees off at The Barclays in 50 minutes with a two-shot lead over playing partner Nick Watney. At last week’s Wyndham Championship, Garcia led by one stroke going into the final round and converted the advantage to win his eighth TOUR title.

Of the previous eight times he has led or shared the lead after 54 holes, Garcia has won three times (see chart below). Last week’s win was the first he had done so since 2004.
