NORTON — It wasn’t like Sawgrass in May when Sergio Garcia had his Tin Cup moment on the island hole, plopping one ball into the water and watching the next roll back in en route to a killer quadruple bogey. This time it was a slow leak, the transmission fluid seeping out of him for a couple of hours before he could plug it.
“I just didn’t play well, obviously,” Garcia acknowledged Monday after shooting 2 over par and ended up in a four-way tie for fourth place at the Deutsche Bank Championship after starting the day two strokes ahead. “Unfortunately, I just didn’t feel it today. I just wasn’t comfortable. I wasn’t able to trust myself as much as I did the first three days.” Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
