Sergio Garcia says the most pleasing aspect of his dramatic Masters victory was the way he demonstrated his mental fortitude to win the green jacket.
Sergio Garcia captured the first major championship of his career with a birdie putt on the first hole of a sudden-death playoff with Justin Rose.
Midway through day four it appeared the Spaniard, on his 74th attempt to win a major, was in the process of an epic capitulation.
And he'll never forget that final hole of regulation, his first crack at No. 18, where another 7-footer burned the edge of the cup.
Rose and Garcia started out tied for the lead. He also expressed relief for Garcia, his longtime friend who has played against since the age of 14.
"I have plenty more looks, and I feel good about it happening". I just want to win here.

White House press secretary Sean Spicer said the attack "sends a very strong signal not just to Syria but throughout the world". On Air Force One on the way to Florida Trump pointed to the crisis in North Korea as a top priority in the meetings with Xi.
Garcia and Rose traded birdies on the front nine to make the turn tied, before Garcia bogeyed the 10th and 11th holes as Rose took a two-shot lead with six holes left. With Rose in with a bogey-5, Garcia had two shots to play with.
However, he made one very amusing mistake - and Twitter brilliantly trolled him with some fantastic responses. Garcia made his winning birdie on the famed 18th green launching a celebration that had to be felt all the way to Spain and ended his streak of 73 majors without a win. "Some of the moments at Augusta I didn't enjoy as much and how stupid I really was to fight something you can't and how I was able to accept things and do things better than I ever had".
He had a shot, hitting his approach to about 14 feet.
The 12th hole proved problematic once again for the 23-year-old, who came to grief in spectacular fashion at the same hole while leading the tournament in the final round last year with a quadruple-bogey.
He has played in four Ryder Cups, including the 2012 "Miracle at Medinah" when he beat five-times major champion Phil Mickelson in the singles to help Europe recover from 10-6 down to defeat the United States in one of sport's great comebacks. American Rickie Fowler and Jimmy Walker led the way with just 1.51 putts per hole.
"I don't have to answer that anymore", he said. Rose rolled his chip down to 5 feet and missed the birdie putt.

The House voted 215-205 to reject the rule, and sent the legislation to President Donald Trump for his signature. The resolution has been passed over to President Trump for approval.
"That putt is kind of a contrary little putt", Rose said.
But Garcia scrambled for a tournament-saving par and then made birdie at 14 and eagle at the par-five 15th after almost holing out from the fairway to set up an epic finish. Not after he slipped his arms into a green jacket on Sunday.
Golfers should get some credit for getting into position to win, even if they fail - as opposed to sneaking into a high finish, as happened with the likes of Charl Schwartzel and Matt Kuchar in the Masters. Fowler shot 40 on the back side and signed for a 76. "I would have liked to be the right part of it, but nevertheless I hope it's a good one".
"For me, golf is about April to September", added Rose.
The horror movie fan said he never felt like he was trapped in a real-life terror show after all his hard luck in majors. He missed a birdie putt on No. 16 to fall one behind Rose, then climbed back into a tie when Rose bogeyed the 17th, and the entire tournament came down to one hole. "It's not going to be a disaster", Garcia said.

He said that "no child of God should ever suffer such horror" and that the attack caused a "slow and brutal death for so many". Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Friday he supports the "strong and clear message" sent by the USA strikes.
