Sergio Garcia to take break from PGA Tour

Sergio Garcia plans to take a two-month break after next week’s PGA Championship in Wisconsin.  The break is contingent on whether he makes the European Ryder Cup team.

If he doesn’t make the Ryder Cup team, Garcia will not play again until the end of October at the Castellon Masters on his home course in Spain.

Sergio Garcia (PGA)

The only way that Garcia would make the Ryder Cup team is if he finishes in the top three at Whistling Straits golf course.

Garcia, who is now 30, has played on every Ryder Cup team since he was 19 at Brookline in 1999. However, his last win was the HSBC Championship in Shanghai almost two years ago.
