Yes you read that correctly, the 2017 Masters Champion is Sergio Garcia. Boy did he earn it too! After fighting back from 2 bogeys to open the back nine, an amazing par save on 13, and a legendary eagle on 15 and Garcia was back in it. Rose letting a few opportunities slip by on 17 and 18, it came to Garcia with a putt to win it and in famous Sergio fashion, it was not pretty.

With all of America torn between wanting Garcia to succeed or fail once again, we go back to 18 for the first playoff hole with Justin Rose. Garcia was able to exhale pretty quickly after an errant drive, and punch out by Rose, Garcia had 2 putts to win the Masters.

On his hero, the late Seve Ballesteros birthday, Garcia is finally able to pull through on Sunday and capture his first Major, and Masters, victory.
