Sergio Garcia said in his Wednesday apology news conference that the BMW PGA Championship "deserved" to have him.

The Spaniard played at Wentworth on Thursday as scheduled in the European Tour's flagship event, shooting even-par 72 at Wentworth Club to trail leader James Kingston by six shots.

In contrast to wearing white while apologizing for using a racial epithet at a Tuesday gala in response to a question about his relationship with Tiger Woods, Garcia wore all black on Thursday.

Playing alongside two-time defending champion Luke Donald and fellow countryman Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano, Garcia beat the Englishman by six shots while Fernandez-Castano is two off the pace.

Garcia was 2 over par heading into the par-5 finishing hole before making an eagle to break even on the day. On the round, Garcia made four bogeys, three birdies, the aforementioned eagle and a double bogey.
