Sergio Garcia is in New England this weekend to play in the Deutsche Bank Championship at TPC Boston in Norton, MA.
The tournament, which kicks off Thursday and ends Sunday, takes place not too far away from Foxboro, MA -- home of the New England Revolution.
That meant that Garcia, from Spain, could take in a little soccer action with the Revs, and took full advantage of the opportunity Wedneday afternoon. Garcia practiced with the Revs, and appeared to have some skills and solid footwork in the process.
His success on the golf course this year, however, hasn't been so great. His best 2011 finish was during the U.S. Open when he finished tied for 7th. Still, that finish earned him 228,416 -- not too shabby for a weekend of golf.
On the year, Garcia has earned 1,315,691 and 832 FedEx Cup Points -- good for 53rd place.
Garcia tees off Thursday at 11:52 am on Tee 1.
Juan Agudelo scored two goals to lead the Revolution to a 5-2 victory over Minnesota United in New England's home opener before 11,571 Saturday at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro.
Agudelo scored in the fourth and 41st minutes as the Revs - held to one goal in their first two games - picked up their first points of the season after opening with losses in Colorado and Dallas.
New England's original home opener, two weeks ago against Orlando, was postponed by cold weather.
After Collen Warner's goal in the 15th minute tied it for expansion Minnesota, Kei Kamara (21st minute) and Lee Nguyen (penalty kick in the 32nd) made it 3-1 before Agudelo completed a four-goal outburst in the first half with his second goal of the game.
Nguyen's tally moved him into a tie with Steve Ralston for second place on the Revs career goals list with his 42nd. They trail Taylor Twellman (101).
Chris Tierney, playing in his 200th MLS game, all with the Revs, capped the scoring with a penalty-kick goal in the 52nd minute.
The Revs next play Sunday, April 2 on the road against the Portland Timbers.
