Garcia underwent eye surgery after Ryder Cup


Unlike some of his teammates, Sergio Garcia didn’t repair to an exotic location after Europe’s Ryder Cup victory.

No, he underwent Lasik eye surgery instead.

According to a Spanish media report, Garcia, 32, underwent surgery last week to correct an astigmatism. Tiger Woods and Ernie Els are among the golfers who have required a similar procedure.

An astigmatism – a curvature of the cornea – causes blurred vision and makes everything appear distorted or out of focus. According to the report, Garcia spent three days resting at home but has already resumed normal off-season activities (tennis, soccer, anything but golf).
