Garcia promises a fight to the death

Sergio Garcia arrived back in Spain on Tuesday for three weeks' rest ahead of what he promises will be a "fight to the death" in his first Ryder Cup.

He secured his place in Europe's team to face the United States by finishing second behind Tiger Woods in the U.S. PGA championship earlier this month.

Garcia is relishing the prospect of rejoining battle with Woods and company at the Brookline Country Club in Boston, although he admits the European team will go into the event as underdogs.

"We'll have to give everything to beat the Americans," Garcia told a news conference. "They are definitely the favourites but that's good for us. We might be able to surprise them.

"We've got a great team and I can promise a fight to the death."

"Winning a place in the Ryder Cup is a dream come true for me. If I play Tiger Woods in the singles, that will be incredible."

But the young Spaniard admits he still has some way to go before he is in the same class as Woods who took his career earnings close to $9 million with victory in the NEC Invitational in Akron, Ohio, on Sunday.

"Tiger Woods is the best golfer in the world," Garcia said. "Things are going well for me at the moment but there is still a gap between us. I'll do everything I can to get up to his level."
