Golfing legend Sergio Garcia heading to Gold Coast for PGA Championship

One of the world’s greatest golfers, Sergio Garcia, is heading to the Gold Coast for the Australian PGA Championship at the end of the year.

CEO of the PGA of Australia, Gavin Kirkman, made the exciting announcement at the RACV Royal Pines Resort on Thursday morning.

The world number 5 says he is looking forward to heading down under for the first time in 7 years.


“2017 has been exciting for me winning The Masters and I look forward to celebrating the end of the year at the Australian PGA Championship,” said Garcia, who last played in Australia in 2010.

“It’s been a long time since I have visited Australia but I remember how welcoming the fans were and I have been trying to get back for some time now.”

The 37-year-old Spaniard says the Green Jacket will definitely be in his suitcase.

“I am privileged to have a Green Jacket and have enjoyed wearing it at other sporting events throughout the year,” he said.

“I will definitely be bringing the Green Jacket with me to the Gold Coast.”

The Australian PGA Championship will be played at the RACV Royal Pines Resort from 30 November to 3 December. 

All general admission tickets will be priced at $25 when purchased at the gate or via Ticketmaster with children, 16 and under, granted free admission when attending with a paying adult.
