Garcia skipping Deutsche Bank in addition to Barclays


EDISON, N.J. – Sergio Garica will continue his postseason pass next week, skipping the Deutsche Bank Championship after also missing the playoff opener this week at Plainfield Country Club.

Garcia’s manager Carlos Rodriguez with Impact Point said the Spaniard is not injured and that he simply decided not to play. Garcia does plan to play the BMW Championship, the third of four playoff events, next month.

Garcia, who will skip the Deutsche Bank Championship for the third time in the last four years, is currently 31st on the FedEx Cup point list but is projected to drop to 42nd after this week’s Barclays.

Francesco Molinari is the only other player who is currently inside the top 100 on the point list who is not playing next week’s stop at TPC Boston. Molinari has missed the last two weeks to be at home with his wife for the birth of the couple’s second child and is currently projected to fall out of the top 100 on Sunday.
