USATSI_10004210_168381909_lowresYears ago, I watched Sergio Garcia and saw a smug, cocky, somewhat arrogant young man who seemed to be a whiner because he should have been a major champion numerous times over if it weren’t for a guy by the name of Tiger Woods.

Over the years, he’s made snide comments that have gotten him into hot water with the American public golf fan and was never really accepted as one of those competitors you can root for.

What I saw yesterday at Agusta was a golfer who has seemingly grown up….he’s become humbled by the chase for a major and appreciative of the greatness it takes to attain that stature.

I’ll tell you now, what I tweeted yesterday, I never been a huge fan, but props to Sergio Garcia.

While we quietly toil away anonymity, he’s aged for the better right before our very eyes.

    Sergio Garcia’s win at the Masters yesterday was warranted. A memorable Masters indeed; from Billy Payne’s introductory guidance and opening remarks for the ceremonial start of competition which was initiated by Gary Player (wiping a tear from his eye) and Jack Nicklaus (raising his hat to the heavens), witnessed by Kit (Arnie’s spouse), to the “I AM A MEMBER OF ARNIE’S ARMY” buttons that patrons and players were sporting, to Sunday’s posthumous 60 birthday of Seve Ballesteros, to the final apparent showdown between Justin Rose and Sergio that necessitated an extra hole to declare the champion (El Maestro = The Master, apropos considering the 37 year old temperamental Spaniard)…….Matt Kuchar’s ace on hole #16 was one of many highlights that enhanced the Masters’ experience.
