No urgency for Garcia in quest for first major

LOUISVILLE: World number three Sergio Garcia, who has endured 10 top-five finishes at majors without ever lifting a trophy, says he feels no sense of urgency about collecting that breakthrough title.

The 34-year-old Spaniard, who settled for second to Rory McIlroy at last month’s British Open, tries again in his 65th major appearance starting today at the 96th PGA Championship at Valhalla.

“I’ve always wanted to win at least one, but I would never say I felt urgency about it,” Garcia said yesterday. “Obviously we’re here trying to do it, week in and week out, so it would be nice.

“But like I’ve always said, if I get to 45 and I haven’t won one, then I’ll probably start worrying a bit more.” Garcia squandered a final-round lead last week in losing a World Golf Championships event to McIlroy, who held off Garcia down the stretch to win his fourth major last month at Royal Liverpool.
