Sergio Garcia’s build-up for the British Open was disrupted on Wednesday when a buggy accident left one of his management team in hospital with a suspected broken ankle.

The accident occurred outside the clubhouse at the Royal Lytham course when the buggy reversed into a group of people a few metres from Garcia, leaving Carlos Rodriguez on the floor injured.

Garcia rushed to help and waited with Rodgriguez until an ambulance arrived to take him to nearby Blackpool Victoria Hospital.
