Sunday at the Masters was a most joyous occasion, far different from when Garcia teed it up in his first major as a pro in the 1999 British Open at Carnoustie. So this is the first one of four. I wasn't really cheering for anybody on Sunday, but I have to admit, it was great to see Garcia break through.

'In the five previous holes I had struck the ball very well. "It would be nice, but I don't know".
Remarkably, Garcia would make par, like Rose who only managed a three-putt, and he came alive on the 14th and 15th as he recorded a birdie and eagle respectively to ensure that the duo went to the 16th hole sharing the lead and with a four-shot lead over the field.
