Held in Augusta, Georgia, the 2017 Masters Tournament was the 81st edition of the Masters Tournament. The Masters Tournament is the first of golf's four major championships in 2017. This year, Sergio Garcia took home his first major title and the famous green jacket.
Sergio, the man with nearly two decades of Masters experience, finally slid on the green jacket. He finished in the top 10 at Augusta three times, and now has the most career top 10s in majors all-time. Justin Rose, who will likely win at Augusta National in the near future, kept Sergio on his toes throughout the tournament. Twice on 18, Garcia was the king of the moment, dropping a pair of approach shots that gave him a chance to win the tournament. But before Sergio’s long winning putt dropped, there was a miss from five feet that sent the competition to a playoff. Rose hit his tee shot to open the playoff into the woods and short of Garcia, then punched out to Garcia’s feet. With a one-stroke advantage on the hole, Garcia went on to deliver another clutch approach into the green and this time buried his birdie putt to win.
The finish to this tournament was the most compelling in recent years. This title was well-deserved and we’re excited to see what Sergio Garcia continues to accomplish.
