AUGUSTA, Ga. -- Sergio Garcia has surrendered.


After playing a borderline humiliating round alongside Rory McIlroy at the Masters on Saturday, the former boy wonder admitted that he's not good enough to win a major.

It's hardly the first time the outspoken, emotional Spaniard has over-reacted, especially at Augusta National, a place he criticized so strongly three years ago, he was forced to issue an apology. But this is strong, introspective stuff.

After starting the third round one stroke off the lead, Garcia tanked with a 75 and was in an absolutely defeatist mood afterward as he vented to the Spanish press. The comments were translated by the Augusta Chronicle.

"I am not good enough to win a major," he said.

He was just getting started. How much was lost in translation and nuance is hard to say, but here's what he was quoted as saying after the round.

"I'm not good enough," he said. "I don't have the thing I need to have."
