Garcia (knee) plans to be ready for U.S. Open


Having withdrawn from the BMW PGA Championship after the first round, Sergio Garcia alerted his Twitter followers Friday that he should be ready to play again at the U.S. Open next month.

Garcia made only one birdie during a 1-over 73 at Wentworth, then withdrew from the event citing a knee injury. He took to Twitter to explain the injury and prognosis:



Garcia's early exit in England was a surprise, considering the fact that the Spaniard has played some good golf this season. Garcia has five top-10 finishes on the PGA Tour in addition to his win in Qatar in January, and he finished third at The Players Championship in his most recent start.

The U.S. Open is slated for June 12-15 at Pinehurst (NC) No. 2. Garcia has four career top-10 finishes in the season's second major, including a tie for third the last time the tournament was held at Pinehurst back in 2005.
