Back to back wins for Garcia

Sergio Garcia climbed back into the world's top 20 with a narrow win at the Andalucia Masters at Valderrama.

Adidas Golf’s Garcia started the day two shots clear of compatriot Miguel Angel Jimenez and survived a shaky start to take his second title in a week.

The inform Spaniard ended a three-year title drought last weekend with an emphatic 11-shot victory at the Castello Masters and closed out victory with a 71.

World number 36 Jimenez led at the turn but finished a shot back on five under after a 70.

Scotland's Richie Ramsay led going into the weekend and briefly jumped into a share of the lead with Garcia on the back nine, but a poor tee shot on the par-three 15th resulted in a double bogey effectively ended his hopes.

Ramsay finished with a Birdie on his final hole to claim outright third ahead of Shane Lowry, who carded an impressive 67.

Garcia had a shaky start to his final round with two bogeys in the first seven holes and as a result was overtaken by Jimenez, but his solid back nine took him to a lead of three with three to play.

Jimenez birdied the 16th and 17th to put the pressure back on Garcia but showed his class with a tricky up and down from the side of the 18th green to take the title.

Garcia said: "It's been two amazing weeks.

"Miguel fought so hard and had some good chances coming in - 17 for eagle and 18 for birdie.

"I wasn't as good as probably the last 13 days, but we hung on and managed to pull through.

"On 18, we decided to play a little more conservative and make sure we hit the fairway, then the chip was just amazing. I thought it was going in.

"I've been in that situation three or four times on this course. It wasn't easy, but I believed in my ability. To be able to hit the chip I hit there and roll the putt in with the pressure, it was nice."
