Garcia declines invitation to Seve Trophy

Although he has declared an ambition to win the money lists in both America and Europe this year, Sergio Garcia’s over-riding commitment to the US Tour was underlined yesterday when he delivered a snub to his mentor Seve Ballesteros by declining to take part in the Seve Trophy next month.

Garcia has told Ballesteros he won’t make the trip to Ireland for the match between Great Britain and Ireland and the Continent at Druids Glen in the week after the Masters. Instead Garcia will tee up at Hilton Head for the MCI Classic.

Asked if he’d spoken personally to Seve about the decision, Garcia described his friend’s reaction to the news as OK: "He understood - that’s the way it goes sometimes. If there was a clone of Sergio, I’d be able to play everywhere, every week, but unfortunately there’s only one Sergio Garcia," he said.
