19 years after, Sergio Garcia wins his first major championship on the PGA tour

Spain's Sergio Garcia won his first major title at his 74th attempt with a thrilling play-off victory over England's Justin Rose at the Masters.  

Garcia finally won one of golf's four majors after 22 previous top-10 finishes.  He became the third Spaniard to win the Masters after Seve Ballesteros and Jose Maria Olazabal.

37-year-old Garcia, who missed a six-foot putt to win on the final green in regulation, clinched victory with a birdie on the 18th green on the first playoff hole after Rose had driven into trees and made a bogey five.
