Spanish golf ace Sergio threatens to quit

      A distraught Spanish golf ace Sergio Garcia has threatened to quit the sport at 30 after struggling to deal with his latest slump in form. According to The Sun, Garcia shot 71 yesterday to improve his Open tally to two under at 142. He has sunk to 44th in world rankings, and could not be consoled by the five birdies that accompanied four bogeys on the windswept Scottish links. Garcia has had five top 10 Open finishes and was runner-up to Padraig Harrington at Carnoustie in 2007 after it looked like the trophy was his. But his fortunes have nose dived since then, and he groaned: "I'm a player who goes out chasing scores of 61, 62 or 63 - I do not come here to make pairs of 71. "I know I am able on a golf course and if now I am not able, this is not worth the pain to me. I don't know if I do want to give up golf - but it is the way I am feeling at the moment," he said.
