Sergio Garcia finally ends curse, wins Augusta Masters in thrilling style

Spanish golfer Sergio Garcia fired a birdie on the first playoff hole against Justin Rose to win the Augusta Masters Tournament. Garcia, on Sunday, finally ended his long time curse of going 73 majors without winning one. The 37 year old Spaniard following in the footsteps of his idols Seve Ballesteros and Jose Maria Olazabal, with the win coming rather poetically on the 60th birth anniversary of Ballesteros, Spain's greatest ever golfer.

Garcia said he was very satisfied and very proud not only of how he had performed during the tournament but also of all the people who supported him since the beginning of his career.


Rose, Garcia locked for the lead at Augusta Masters

English golfer Justin Rose (five-under 67) and Spaniard Sergio Garcia (70) shared the top spot at the 81st edition of the Masters after an exciting third round at Augusta National.

Rose fired five birdies in the back-nine as he overcame a couple of birdies and bogeys each in the front-nine to score the best result of the day (67) on Saturday to share the top spot at a three-day total of six-under 210.


Garcia makes it 4-way tie for the lead at Augusta National

Spain's Sergio Garcia, Belgium's Thomas Pieters and Americans Charley Hoffman and Rickie Fowler shared the top spot after the second round of the The Masters golf championship here on Friday.

Garcia, who continues to search for an elusive first major title, fired a three-under 69 to move to a four-under 140 total. Hoffman (three-over 75), Pieters (68) and Fowler (67) made it a four-way tie at the top.


Walker edges Day to win PGA Championship

American golfer Jimmy Walker pulled off an astonishing wire-to-wire triumph at the PGA Championship, sloshing 36 holes across soggy Baltusrol course and outduelling top-ranked defending champion Jason Day down the stretch to clinch his maiden Major title.

The 37-year-old on Sunday scored a birdie on the next-to-last hole and ended 14-under 266 (65-66-68-67), a stroke ahead of Australia's Day (68-65-67-67), who almost caught up with him with a prodigious eagle on the last hole of the match.


Anirban Lahiri misses cut at PGA Championship

Indian golfer Anirban Lahiri failed to make the halfway cut at the PGA Championship as he scored a second consecutive three-over 73 at the Baltusrol Golf Club in Springfield, New Jersey. The 29-year-old, who was tied 107th after the first round, on Friday took his total of six-over 146 while the weekend cut was decided at two-over 142.

Lahiri got off to a poor start by getting bogeys on the par-four holes of first and third.
