Sergio Garcia Wins His First Major in Overtime

Apr 11, 2017

Golf fans from all over the world held their breath for what promised to be an amazing weekend of the Masters. At the end of the day it all came down to a race between Sergio Garcia and Justin Rose, which ended with a thrilling victory for Sergio. He made his way to the playoff and after a dazzling display of skill and composure, he managed to roll in a 15 foot putt to win the event. It took him a while to win the first major title, but it was a well deserved victory that the fans were anxiously waiting for.

Arguably the most important golf event in April, the Masters enjoyed ample coverage at all important bookmakers the likes of listed here. Even punters who don’t normally bet on golf were tempted to take a leap of faith, just for the sake of the adrenaline rush. Whether they decided to make things interesting with a bet or simply watched the competition, those in the audience were not disappointed. Garcia claimed the trophy, but the runner-up and several others left a long-lasting and overwhelmingly positive impression.

Justin Rose Is Denied the Green Jacket

Sergio Garcia was amazing throughout the tournament, so his victory wasn’t exactly a huge surprise. Even so, for Justin Rose, finishing in the second place was rather disappointing, since he was just a few holes away from victory. He was constantly ahead of the pack and had Garcia trailing at a short distance, but the Spaniard kept his cool and managed to push the game into overtime.

Sergio Garcia and Justin Rose spent most of the time in the spotlight, yet other golfers stood out from the crowd. Kuchar was among those who impressed with a stellar performance and he fully deserved his shared fourth place. At the opposite end of the spectrum, was Rickie Fowler, who started among the favorites but finished outside top 10.
