Sergio Garcia: "Average age is much lower"

The golfer from Borriol (Castellón) Sergio García highlighted this Monday that the LIV Golf championship, which will arrive in Spain for the first time at the end of June, has an average age of its spectators "much lower" than in other tournaments "of the PGA or any other tour", which he considered "very good" to strengthen the youth system in this sport.

García, who is scheduled to participate from June 30 to July 2 in the LIV Golf tournament to be played on the Real Club Valderrama course, in the Sotogrande urbanization (San Roque, Cádiz), stated in statements released by the organization that the team format of the new championship is an incentive.

"It is always much easier as a sports fan to be a fan of a team than of many players," he said, in addition to highlighting that this "is something that everyone is going to like." For the golfer from Castellón, "the most important thing" is "to have young people involved in your sport", in addition to influencing the importance of this fact for the future of the golf academy.

Playing in Valderrama again, this time in a LIV tournament, is a "dream come true," said García, who valued it as his "favorite" course and where he won the Andalucía Masters tournament in 2011, 2017 and 2018.

. The winner of the 2017 Augusta Masters predicted that the next tournament in Sotogrande will be "spectacular" as the Spanish fans will be able to witness a "different" format, which brings "a lot of energy" to the public that approaches the playing fields.

Sergio García is the captain of the Fireballs GC team, which also includes the Spanish Eugenio Chacarra and the Mexicans Abraham Ancer and Carlos Ortiz. Valderrama will host the eighth LIV Golf tournament in 2023, with the participation of 48 players and twelve league teams.
