Sergio García resigns from the Games to be able to go to the Ryder

The golfer regretted not attending the Olympic event but confessed that his main priority is to be in the Ryder Cup. Adri Arnaus will go with Rahm after the resignation of Rafa Cabrera Bello.


Spanish golfer Sergio García will not be at the Tokyo Olympics. Through a message on his social networks, the Castellón golfer confirmed his absence from the Olympic event, since his main priority for the remainder of the season is to get a direct place to play the Ryder Cup.

García wanted to emphasize that this resignation is motivated by the objective of obtaining a direct place in the Ryder Cup instead of competing with an invitation in one of the most special tournaments for him. "It has been one of the most difficult decisions of my life. I love the Olympic Games and for me it is always an honor to represent Spain. However my sporting priority at the moment is the Ryder Cup. Everyone knows what it represents for me that competition. My number one goal is to qualify for the European team by my own means without having to wait for possible invitations. Representing Spain in the Olympic Games is a pride and a huge responsibility and requires being one hundred percent in the head in that competition ".

The golfer assures that, had he already obtained his place for the Ryder Cup, the situation would have been different, but he prefers that another Spanish golfer represents him, while showing his enthusiasm for being able to compete in the Paris 2024 Games. "Yes If I had qualified for the Ryder I would have played them with absolute safety, but without having my five senses put there, I prefer to give the opportunity to another player who can give our great Spain the best medal option. I know that because of my age he gets every It is increasingly difficult to qualify, but I will do my best to be able to be in the next Games. I am convinced that Spain will be represented in the best way and that we will fight for the medals in Tokyo. I will be supporting them with all my strength so that this happens ".
