Danny Willett’s Brother Sends Hilarious Tweet to Sergio Garcia After Masters Win

Danny Willett’s Brother Sends Hilarious Tweet to Sergio Garcia After Masters Win

The golfing world finally got what it wanted last night as Sergio Garcia ended his long wait for a major.

The Spaniard was crowned the 2017 Masters champion on Sunday after an outstanding final day against Justin Rose which could not be finished in 18 holes.

Garcia took a three-stroke lead on the fifth hole but appeared to self-destruct after bogeying 10 and 11 while Rose birdied three in a row to take a convincing lead.

But an outstanding recovery on the 13th allowed Garcia to get himself back into it and an eagle on 15th meant it was game on.

Garcia had the chance to win it on 18 after Rose missed his birdie effort but the Spaniard’s long wait for a major looked like it could go on after he too missed a birdie putt.

However, an outstanding birdie on the playoff hole coupled with Rose’s bogey meant Garcia was Masters champion and lifted his first major trophy after 74 starts.

Last year’s winner, Danny Willett, was on hand to reward Garcia with his green jacket and his brother, PJ, couldn’t help but have a cheeky dig on Twitter.

It was also very fitting that Garcia lifted his first major on what would have been Seve Ballesteros’ 60th birthday.
