Garcia wins on PGA Tour

5:48 am on 21 August 2012

The Spanish golfer Sergio Garcia has snapped a four-year PGA Tour title drought with victory at the rain-delayed Wyndham Championship in North Carolina.

Garcia, who had a one-shot lead after four holes yesterday, when play was halted because of rain and thunderstorms, shot a four-under 66 in the final round for an 18-under total, two shots clear of South African Tim Clark.

The Spaniard, who needed a strong result to force his way onto Europe's team for next month's Ryder Cup, guaranteed a place on the team by securing his eighth PGA Tour victory and first since the 2008 Players Championship.

32-year-old Garcia has played five Ryder Cups and finished on the winning team three times though he missed Europe's victory at Celtic Manor in 2010.
