The bookies are backing in-form Sergio Garcia at 8/1 to win his first ever Major title next year after he climbed back into the world's top 20.

The 31-year-old won back-to-back tournaments in Spain – his win in the Andalucia Masters followed an impressive 11-shot win in the Costello Masters – perhaps a sign that Garcia is as past it some may have thought.

Garcia fell to outside the top 75 from second in the World Ranking over the last few years, the low point being 82nd in March 2011.

But a miraculous return to form after that with a top 10 finishes in the Arnold Palmer Invitational, US Open and Open, as well as an impressive second in the BMW International Open, gave him back some respectability in the rankings.

Sergio Garcia is also 50/1 to top the PGA Tour Money List in 2012, but lets not get too far ahead of ourselves shall we.

His two European Tour wins in a week have now pushed him up to 18th in the world, but there are still some doubts as both tournaments were hosted in Spain, where he has always played well.

He is currently at 8/1 to finally capture a Major in 2012, 33/1 to win next year's Masters and 25/1 for success at Open 2012.
