Seve was there for me, says GarciaBy Kelly Sanders Apr 12, 2017
But he's 0-for-45 in majors despite eight top-10 finishes in his last 28 major starts.
No one had ever played as many majors as Garcia before winning his first one, so those tears were equal parts joy and relief.
South African Charl Schwartzel, the 2011 Masters victor, was third on 282 with American Matt Kuchar and Belgian Thomas Pieters sharing fourth on 283. His Ryder Cup teammate Martin Kaymer credits the drought being on the PGA Tour at the wrong time. "It's going to be one of my favorite dishes in Spain". He has two runner-up finishes and five top-5s.
Fowler stayed in the hunt through the front nine, but he fell apart on the back nine and finished with a 76 and continues to chase his first major championship. Like Garcia, Westwood has been plagued by Sunday issues in his near-misses in the majors.
Five years ago, Garcia claimed he was not good enough to win a major after shooting a three-over-par 75 at the 2012 Masters to drop out of contention. The game was still on, and Garcia eventually won it. I feel comfortable on the golf course, like every time I tee up I've got a chance to win.
Playing with his heart as much as he does with his clubs, Sergio Garcia took Green Jacket at the 81st Augusta Masters on Sunday to maintain the legacy of countrymen Seve Ballesteros on his 60th birth anniversary, and Jose Maria Olazabal, who like Seve won twice.
Shakespeare's Foxes ready for Atletico despite Everton blow
The second half proved far less entertaining than the first, Everton remaining resolute as Leicester chased the game. Lukaku netted twice, taking his season's tally for Everton to 24, as the Merseysiders fought back from 2-1 down.
"It has been an wonderful week and I'm going to enjoy it for the rest of my life", said Garcia. "I feel motivated for the summer, and I will be moving on and setting goals very quickly after this". "So it was nice to be able to battle that out with him, throughout the whole day". His confidence is high, and his putting stroke is on point, and it looks like he's ready for a big move forward after earning a return to Augusta National next year for his fifth Masters trip by finishing tied for 11th.
Along with the happy reflections of the people around him - including Angela Akins, the former Golf Channel reporter he plans to marry in July - that final burst of emotion was thinking about "moments that unfortunately didn't go the way I wanted". Now I'll have to answer ...
"I knew I needed to make that putt to stay with it. But I can live with that".
Later, an emotional Garcia said, "I have seen (myself) winning it several time".
The 86-year-old, who works for the BBC, made the comment after Sergio Garcia celebrated his at the Masters in Augusta last weekend.
He said the results weren't shocking, "just a little freakish". She has that bit of steeliness about her and I think that has permeated through to Sergio. At the same time, though, he insisted that his new status is not going to be a life-changing experience.
