"I Want To Be The Pope."
By Kickntrue on 10/20/10
The above statement has about as much chance of happening as Sergio Garcia's, "I want to be golf's No. 1."
"I needed the break, I had lost the desire to play, and practicing had become an obligation. Now, on the contrary, I feel full of energy, and actually enjoy practicing. I have set myself new goals and look forward to performing again at the top level."

The 30-year-old has fallen to 68th in the rankings, but is determined to rectify that starting with a good showing at the Club de Campo del Mediterraneo course where his father works.
He won the inaugural tournament there in 2008 and was fourth last year.


"I know more about myself and feel able to answer my own questions. I now have clear goals. For a start, I want to win the Castello Masters and the remaining tournaments, and then I want to return gradually to where I should be, and perform to my full potential -- be world number one.
This morning we talked about a golfer making a comeback who is easy to root for. For some reason the general public doesn't find it difficult to root against Sergio instead of for him. I know he has a bit of a reputation as being a bit of a whiner, though honestly I'm not sure he doesn't just say what he's feeling instead of burying it inside.

Despite my cheeky title- I'm actually a fan of Sergio saying this. What is the point of being on Tour if your goal isn't to be the best. At 68th in the world, he has a lot better chance of being the best golfer in the world than I have at being the best of ANYTHING in the world.

I'd rather see Sergio win than Duval.
Backquak says:
I will root for both of them, I like to see them both playing well but I can easily root against them if they start suckin, Yep, I'm a fair weather fan, I like to root for whoever is winning, except Phil, I always root against Phil.

I will bet anyone on oobgolf right now that Sergio doesnt make the top 20, one year from now!

Don't know he has some talent but a little weak in the mental part to become number one

I'd like to be the Pope too, You get to wear that cool hat. As a matter of fact it blew off his head one time when he was on an offshore fishing trip with George Bush. George stepped over the railing, walked across the water to the hat, picked it up, and walked it back to the boat for the Pope. Next day, New York Times headline "GEORGE BUSH CAN'T SWIM"

what are you talking about? you got the best golf blog/stat/score entering site in the world!

I really like Sergio and hope he gets his game back. He has the raw talent just needs to work it.
Dazinkster says:
Over here in the UK Sergio has a pretty good profile, I'd say the majority of people want to see him succeed and are fairly big fans.
cjgiant says:
I only want to see him do well if he can sustain it. If he can consistently challenge on the PGA tour, I'd love it. Funny thing is, I want him to get there to root against him. I'm not sure that even makes sense to me, but I think what I am saying is golf needs of those both solid performers that people root for as well as those that people root against. He'd fit in my adversarial group.
