The 41-year-old claimed his 24th Ryder Cup match victory, winning 3&1 alongside fellow Spaniard Jon Rahm against US pair Brooks Koepka and Daniel Berger in the morning foursomes.
The European duo pulled off a remarkable comeback to claim the vital victory for the visitors, coming back from three shots down.

It is their second win of the weekend together, having also won their foursome match on Friday morning at Whistling Straits.

Garcia made his debut at the 1999 Ryder Cup, appearing at nine further tournaments.

In 2006, he was unbeaten over the first two days, becoming only the second player after Ian Woosnam to win all four points from his foursomes and fourball matches.

Entering this year’s competition, Garcia had scored just as many points as the entire US team combined.

During the previous Ryder Cup at Le Golf National, France, in 2018, Garcia overtook Nick Faldo’s record to become Europe’s all-time leading points scorer with 25.5 points.

However, although he passed Faldo for the number of points, it took him until Saturday to pass him for the most matches won at the Ryder Cup.

Faldo had 23 matches won, but now Garcia is the record holder, having earned his 23rd and 24th match victories in Wisconsin.
