Sergio Garcia is a Major champion!

The Spaniard defeated Justin Rose in a sudden death playoff on Sunday evening at Augusta National to win the Green Jacket, at the 19th time of asking.

In what was one of golf's most popular major wins in recent times, numerous players past and present, congratulated the Spaniard, but it was Rose who led the plaudits.

Danny Willett was the man with the honour of putting the Green Jacket on Garcia. Last year's champion looked delighted to welcome Garcia into the club. 

Along with Rose and Willett, numerous other players congratulated Garcia on the win that was a long, long time coming.
