Garcia gets into the swing of Spanish third tier

Spanish golf star Sergio Garcia has fulfilled a lifelong ambition by turning out for hometown football club CF Borriol in the Spanish third division.

Garcia came on as a substitute for eight minutes of Borriol's 1-0 defeat to Ribarroja in the Tercera Division, playing on the left of midfield.

The former world No. 2, who counts World Cup Golden Ball winner Diego Forlan among his friends, is a huge football fan and is the president of his local club.

"Sergio looked on the hefty side but has talent," one onlooker said. "However he only got his chance because he's the club president."

Garcia is thought to be hoping to convince the club's coach to let him take part again as he is taking a two-month break from golf after a difficult year.
