Garcia admits to hurting, and it's not something he can remedy in the fitness trailer

May 27, 2009

Just when you thought being a multimillionaire superstar athlete with countless female suitors would make you immune to a broken heart, along comes Sergio Garcia, who has finally admitted what had been whispered about on tour for months: that he has been reeling this season after being dumped by Morgan-Leigh Norman.

"It hurt," Garcia told reporters about the end of his relationship. "It was probably the first time I have been really in love. It took me a while to get over it."

Garcia, who was recently passed by Paul Casey into the No. 3 spot in the world ranking, says he harbors no ill will against the daughter of Greg Norman, but did admit the break-up was completely her doing. Hey man, we've been there.

"We are still friends but no, we haven't spoken since then. We have not telephoned. Obviously, because of the situation I would rather not talk to her, because when you are trying to get over a relationship it is difficult. But I don't have a feeling of hate against her."
