FINALLY the wait is over for Sergio Garcia. It was only fitting that on the 60th birth day of his great friend, hero and Masters Icon Seve, that the ever baby faced Garcia claimed his first Major.
Two of Europe’s greatest ever players and Ryder Cup Hero’s did battle over the famous Georgia course on Sunday afternoon. The battle ebbed and flowed with the lead changing hands over the course of the round. Justin Rose looking so strong and calm throughout 10, 11 and 12 but a battling Garcia never let him out of his sights and clawed him back in.
In this Major above all any that Sergio has ever contended in, we seen BOTTLE and BACK BONE from the Spaniard. On other occasions when mistakes happened, Sergio’s head would go down and you could barely watch the TV screens as he would throw another major away, but not this time.
Was it inspiration from Seve above, was it the influence of his wife to be or was it just his time……..?
Golf of God’s
The Golf that was played by both JR & Sergio in the closing holes was something very special, the highest quality of shots hit under the greatest of all pressures. If there could of been two Green Jackets both men deserved it for the display of golf which best fitted Masters Sunday.
What now for Sergio, he has his Major at last, will he win more ? or does it even matter ?
The 2017 Golf Season has just begun and already this year’s golf fairy tale story has already been written.
A sure winner for BBC’s Sports Personality of the Year 2017!
