Sergio Garcia

In his 74th major championship start, and on what would have been the 60th birthday of fellow countryman Seve Ballesteros, Garcia birdied the par-4 18th at Augusta National, the first hole of sudden death, to defeat 2013 U.S. Open champion Justin Rose and win the Masters for his first major title. He had collected 22 top-10 finishes in 73 previous major championship starts, four of which were runner-up showings. In his 19th appearance at Augusta National, he played his way into a tie for the 54-hole lead with Rose at six-under 210. The duo posted matching 69s in the final round to finish at nine-under 283. En route to the 69 on Sunday to keep pace with Rose, Garcia made an eagle-3 at the 15th hole to get to nine-under. It was his first eagle in 452 holes at the Masters. With the win, Garcia became the first Spaniard to win the Masters since Jose Maria Olazabal in 1999. With scores of 71-69-70-69, he joined Rose as the only two players in the field to play all four rounds with under-par scores. One record that Garcia owns is the longest time to win his first major; the previous record was held by Tom Kite, who played 72 majors before winning the 1992 U.S. Open.
Garcia grew up playing at the Mediterraneo Club de Golf in Borriol, Spain, where his father, Victor, was the golf professional. Garcia's mother, Consuelo, ran the golf shop and says that the course served as Sergio's "big, green living room." He remembers that from the age of 3, he ran around the whole place, doing all kinds of kids' things and hitting every kind of shot he could imagine, getting a total feel for the game. He was club champion by the time he was 12. Known as "El Nino," Garcia was a scratch player at age 13. He made his European Tour debut at age 15 at the 1995 Turespana Open Mediterrania, where he made the cut. Played his first major championship, the 1996 British Open, at age 16, and as a 17-year-old amateur, captured his first professional tournament at a Spanish PGA event, the 1997 Catalonian Open, where he shot three consecutive rounds of 64.
He won the 1995 European Amateur at age 15, the youngest winner of that tournament, and in 1998 won The Amateur Championship conducted by The R&A. At the 1998 U.S. Amateur, he lost a semifinal match to Tom McKnight after defeating Matt Kuchar in the quarterfinals. In amateur tournaments in 1997 and '98, he played 21 events, winning 17 of them.
Garcia turned professional after the 1999 Masters. He was a member of the 1999, 2002, '04, '06, '08, '12, '14, '16 and '18 European Ryder Cup teams. In 2010, he took a two-month break from golf after missing the cut at the PGA Championship and served as a Ryder Cup vice-captain during a one-point victory by the European team over the U.S.
