Sona can beat a Garen. Skill>matchups.
However, as far as Teemo goes, it's more accurate.
Teemo's kit counters Garen's play-style.
Q- Blinds Garen, shutting down his auto attack
W- Sprint allows Teemo to more easily escape Garens sprint
E- DoT prevents Garen's passive HoT from activating
R- Slows, damages, DoTs Garen...crippling his only means on closing.
Teemo may not be able to burst down a Garen at 65 minutes, but at 10 minutes, Garen doesn't stand a chance.
Yorick has similar advantages, but not quite as clear. The tradeoff, is lategame Yorick CAN kill Garen.
There is no best top. BUT if we had to name an absolute, singular best, I'd say possibly Kayle (current post-nerf Kayle). Her Q is a good burst/CC allowing her to keep gap closers in check. W heals and gives her an important MS buff, allowing chasing/fleeing. E is a ranged-mode AoE ass-kicker. Ult is obv.
