Sergio Garcia has finally done it.
After a thrilling back-9, going head-to-head with Justin Rose, Garcia won the Masters, his first major, with a birdie putt on the first hole of the playoff. The win came in the 74th major of what has otherwise been a strong career on the golf course.
Off the course, Garcia’s life is pretty fabulous also. He is engaged to a golf reporter, loves to play poker, and even owns a jet and a racecar.
Below is a closer look at the life of the Masters champion.
If we consider his winnings on both the PGA Tour and the European Tour, Garcia has now made more than $A93.25 million in his career. Only five golfers in the history of the game have made more. His main rival, Tiger Woods, is one.
At The Players Championship in 2013, Garcia lost about $A2 million in winnings when he shot 5-over on the final two holes when he was tied with Tiger Woods for the lead.
In 2013, the CEO of Adidas stood by Garcia after he made a racially insensitive joke, saying he was going to invite Tiger Woods to dinner and serve him fried chicken. Herbert Hainer called the comment 'stupid,' but defended maintaining their relationship by calling Garcia 'a really good guy.'
He once nearly had to buy a fan a diamond when one of his errant shots knocked the diamond out of her ring. They did later find the diamond.
Sergio once hired his then-girlfriend to be his caddie for a tournament. It was a good move as he won the Thailand Golf Championship ending a year-long winless drought.
Garcia has also dated the daughter of Greg Norman, blaming his poor 2009 season on being dumped by her.
He is now engaged to Angela Akins, a Golf Channel reporter, and the pair are getting married this summer. She was at Augusta National to celebrate the Masters win. Akins played golf at the University of Texas and now Garcia spends a lot of time in Austin and has become a Longhorns fan.
Garcia is also a big football fan and is the president of CF Borriol, a third-division club in Spain. Garcia even suited up for one game in 2011, and routinely plays in celebrity charity matches.
It is the second Hawker business jet he has owned. However, he almost certainly received a discount as they describe Garcia as an 'advocate' for their jets and are a 'minor sponsor' of his game.
He also owns a house in Spain and one in the ski resort city of Crans-Montana in Switzerland, the home of the Omega European Masters. The former is his main residence.
Sergio's best season of golf came in 2002 when he finished in the top 10 at all four majors. On the PGA Tour and European Tours combined, he won two events and made $A5.33 million.
