All golf fans know how good friends Sergio Garcia and Jon Rahm are. The fact is that we will be watching Rahm at the Ryder Cup this year. On the other hand, Sergio Garcia failed to secure his place in the team. Jon Rahm recently stated that he is sad that he will not have the chance to work with his compatriot.
“I'm going to miss him. We had a great partnership at Whistling Straits."- Rahm said. Sergio Garcia already had a long conversation with Rahm, in which they talked about various topics, especially the Ryder Cup. Considering their previous cooperation, Garcia is disappointed that he will not be part of the same team again.
However, he has no doubt that Rahm will have a partner with whom he can achieve a great result. “Yeah, we've talked a lot about it, him and I. Obviously, yeah, everyone knows how much I love the Ryder Cup and the bonds that we've been able to build and are created in those Ryder Cups.
Obviously Jon is no different. We had a great time. We obviously are good friends, and our friendship kind of got even stronger after the last Ryder Cup. Yeah, it is going to be a shame. I will miss him, too. But hopefully he'll find another partner that suits him, and they can do well together”.

Sergio Garcia on the Ryder Cup
This year's Ryder Cup offers exciting opportunities for the Spaniard. The other side of the coin is that Garcia does not want such things to have as much of an effect on him, and he has already set his sights on the future and new challenges that lie ahead.
Taking things as they are and accepting them as they are is the most important thing that can be done, since it is too late now to make any changes. “Yes, I would love to, obviously. Yes, it is disappointing to see that I'm not going to be able to be part of the Ryder Cup this year and the DP World Tour for the same matter.
But it is what it is. At the end of the day, I'm happy where I am, and that doesn't change. But I also want to kind of move on and concentrate on the events that I have left and focus on that because we have enough things in our heads to put more stuff in there and make it even tougher.
But at the end of the day, hopefully there will be a way back and something that we can work on, and we'll see what happens in the future”.
