The players returned to the 18th and Rose was unable to save par after pushing his drive into the trees and hitting a poor recovery, but Garcia finished an unforgettable day in style by holing from 12 feet for birdie.
Jose sent me a text on Wednesday telling me how much he believed in me and what I needed to do, believe in myself, be calm and not let things get to me as I had in the past." Rose, who was looking to become the first European player to win the Masters and US Open, said: "Lots of good things happened today.
It was a wonderful battle and if there is anyone you want to lose to it's Sergio.
Akins said, "I think Angela has him all wrapped up in what it means to be a Longhorn. Sergio Garcia and Marty Akins are bonded by golf and bow hunting.
Needless to say, Sergio is perfect fit into the Akins family.
She was even spotted wearing a diamond ring, but both Boehm and Garcia have denied it is an engagement ring.
However, Garcia didn’t deny that there would be an engagement in the future.
Katharina Boehm was the girlfriend of longtime PGA Tour fixture, Sergio Garcia before Garcia began dating Angela Akins in 2015.
Garcia‘s re-emergence as an elite player in 2014 was one of the biggest storylines in golf.
In 13 years I've come to the conclusion that I need to play for second or third place." Now he has proved himself wrong. I felt the calmest I've ever felt on a major Sunday and even after making a couple of bogeys I was still very positive, and hit some really good shots coming in and I'm so happy.
"It's been such a long time coming and I thought I had it on 18," Garcia said before receiving his green jacket from 2016 champion Danny Willett. "It's amazing to do it on Seve's 60th birthday and to join him and (Jose Maria) Olazabal, my two idols in golf, it's something amazing.
I turned a poor round into a decent round.''It was the second hole-in-one of Garcia's PGA Tour career.
