Sergio Garcia’s good fortune continued today at the Honda Classic. Yesterday he holed out for an eagle on the second hole after asking the wind to give him an assist. Then he avoided lurking alligators as he waded into the water to hit his second shot on the 6th.

This morning, on the seventh hole, his shot landed tantalizingly close to the cup, just balancing on the edge before coming to a stop.

The Spanish golfer is currently in second place behind Rickie Fowler. This is Garcia’s second tournament appearance in 2016. We can’t wait to see what the weekend brings.
