Sergio Garcia's stay at the BMW PGA Championship was a brief one.
Garcia was one of only a few players to complete his opening round at Wentworth before a second stoppage of play for inclement weather, but the Spaniard withdrew after an opening 73, citing a knee injury.
Garcia was considered one of the favorites going into the week, with three top-10 finishes in his last five starts overall capped by a third-place showing earlier this month at The Players Championship. His record at Wentworth was also impressive, having finished fifth in 2000 and T-19 in his only other two appearances at this event (1999, 2013).
The 34-year-old got off to a slow start, though, with bogeys on two of his first eight holes and Garcia played his first 17 holes without making a birdie. At 1 over, he trailed leader Thomas Bjorn by 11 shots when he signed his scorecard, with more than half the field still to complete the first round of play.
