Nick Price advises Garcia to refine swing

Zimbabwean veteran Nick Price had some sage advice for Sergio Garcia on Tuesday - refine your swing or face problems in the future.

Price, 42, said after practice for this week's World Matchplay Championship that he was an admirer of the Spanish teenager but that he will probably have to sacrifice some driving length to realise his potential.

"You have to drive the ball well to win majors and if there is a weakness in Sergio's game it is his driving. If he doesn't make the refinements to his swing, certainly he will struggle on certain courses.

"Look at this year's Open at Carnoustie where he shot that horrific 89 in the first round. He probably missed a few more fairways than the rest of us and the rough was so high and he got severely penalised for missing the fairways - as all of us did."

But Price added: "He has a magnificent short game and is a great putter. That bails him out. He is a typical Spaniard, like Seve (Ballesteros) at a similar age, smash it, find it and smash it again, like Seve," Price said.
