It's a girl! Sergio Garcia becomes a dad

Sergio Garcia now has more than a green jacket to remind him of his victory at the Masters. It was on that hole that Garcia made an incredible par during the final round of the Masters previous year that set him up for the first major championship of his career.

Garcia and Akins got married last July, having got engaged in January 2017.

Garcia won the Masters past year in a memorable duel with Justin Rose, marking the end of his career-long tenure as "best golfer never to win a major".

"I look forward to everything, you know, to spending it with my wife, Angela, to trying to raise our daughter the best way possible, trying to make all the decisions as well as we can", Garcia said Tuesday from the hospital.

Masters champion Sergio Garcia and wife Angela Akins have had their first child - and they've given it an Augusta-inspired name.

"Beautiful Azalea Adele Garcia was born on March 14 at 1.54am", the Spaniard tweeted after the birth of his first child on Wednesday (March 14).

He followed with a birdie and an eagle and wound up winning in a playoff over Justin Rose.

"It's been an eventful morning", Garcia, 38, said. "About an hour and a half ago, Angela's waters broke so we're at the hospital right now, kind of checking in".

It's also the name of the 13th hole, where Garcia salvaged a memorable par from the pine straw to help keep pace with Rose and eventually win the Masters.
