An incredible week at Augusta has come to an end with the action living up to all the hype. Sergio Garcia will no longer be considered the best player never to win a major. The Spaniard beat Justin Rose in thrilling fashion during the first playoff hole to claim the green jacket. It was Garcia’s 74th attempt and the celebrations on the 18th green at Augusta were hair raising and memorable. He soaked up the cheers in the fading Augusta light. The relief, pride and honor were almost palpable. The roadshow moves on to the Harbour Town Golf Links for the RBC Heritage. The course measures 7, 099 yards and is a par 71. This track is renowned for being one of the shortest layouts on tour but still deceptively difficult. Brandon Grace is back to defend the title he won here last year. It will be worth keeping an eye on those players teeing it up this week that finished their last rounds on Sunday at Augusta on a high. With a bit of momentum they could steal a march on the field and claim the tartan jacket this weekend.
