Garcia Wins German Masters
COLOGNE, Germany (AP) _ Spanish teen-ager Sergio Garcia won the $1.9 million German Masters Sunday, beating Ryder Cup teammate Padraig Harrington on the second hole of a playoff.
Garcia, 19, sank a 10-foot birdie putt for his second victory in five months on the European tour.
Garcia, Harrington and 1991 Masters champion Ian Woosnam each finished the final round, played in blowing rain, at 11-under 277.
Woosnam missed a 4-foot putt on the first playoff hole following spectacular shots by Garcia and Harrington to save par.
Garcia’s 25-foot putt dropped in, just after the Irishman chipped in from 33 feet.
Woosnam missed a chance to win in regulation when his 6-foot par putt rimmed out at the 18th hole.
Garcia missed two birdie putts of 10 feet each on his final two holes, while Harrington’s 18th hole bogey cost him the victory.
