Sergio garcia will be one of the most notable absences at the Augusta National Golf Club in the Masters that starts this Thursday, November 12, after having given positive for coronavirus.

Borriol’s own golfer has been in charge of telling that, por the first time since being a professional, will not be in a ‘major’ for illness.

“On Saturday night when I got back from Houston, I started notice an itchy throat and a slight cough. These symptoms continued with me on Sunday, so I decided to get tested for COVID-19, as did my wife Angela. Fortunately, she tested negative but I did not, “he begins by counting.

“After 21 years without missing a Major, I will unfortunately miss the Masters this week. The important thing is that my family and I are doing well. We will come back stronger than before and next April we will try to get the second green jacket, “said the 2017 champion.

The Augusta Masters, the first of the four ‘majors’ that traditionally make up a season, moved at the end of the year to be able to dispute, which had added a certain point of incognito to be a totally different time from the usual. It will be held with strict security measures, without public, until Sunday, November 15, and it is planned that already in 2021 it can be played on more usual dates.

Despite the difficulties this year, Garcia was not having a bad season and his last victory was achieved on October 4 at the Sanderson Farms Championship.
