Golfing Gods Smiling Down On Stroud

Looking for some divine inspiration?

Chris Stroud had a stroke of luck in the first round of the Zurich Classic on Thursday as gravity lent a hand to set up a birdie for the American.

Stroud and his partner Brian Stuard finished the day in a tie for seventh on four under par in this unique team format. Kyle Stanley and Ryan Ruffels are tied in first place with the bookie favourites Jordan Spieth and Ryan Palmer on six under par.

All Hail Garcia

Has Sergio Garcia taken that Green Jacket off yet?

The Spaniard was given a warm welcome at the Bernabeu on Sunday night before El Clasico. It wasn't such a good night for his team however with Lionel Messi grabbing an injury time winner for Barcelona.

Get In The Duke!

Veteran Ken Duke showed he still has plenty of energy with this fantastic celebration following a hole out from the sand for eagle.

Duke is in a tie for sixth place following the first round of the Valero Texas Open in San Antonio. Clubhouse leader is South African Branden Grace who shot a six under par 66 to lead by one going into Friday's second round.

What A Gent

Justin Rose lost nothing in defeat at Augusta this week.

The Englishman's ding-dong battle with Sergio Garcia will not just be remembered for the golf but for the amazing sportsmanship between the two.

It's why we love sport!

A Masters To Remember

Sergio Garcia will be waking up on Monday morning a Masters winner.

It was an incredible final round which turned into a head to head battle between Garcia and Justin Rose.

Both players lead during the final round but it was Garcia who won on the first extra hole of a play-off to win his first Major on his 74th attempt.

Relive the final round...

Sergio Garcia Major Winner

It's taken 74 attempts but Sergio Garcia is a major winner!

The Spaniard birdied the first play-off hole to beat Justin Rose to win a thrilling Masters.

Congrats Sergio, we'll be back tomorrow for Crystal Palace v Arsenal. 

Advantage Garcia

Rose is blocked out for his second shot and can only move the ball twenty yards or so up the fairway.

Garcia hits the green and is in good shape for birdie, whilst Rose finds himself in pretty much the same line he had in regulation for par.


Who Wins From Here?

So tbe players are back at the 18th tee for the play-off.

Justin Rose goes first and hits it right into the trees.

Sergio Garcia straight up the middle.

Advantage Sergio...

They Both Miss!

We've got a play-off.

Both players miss their birdie putts on eighteen, another unconvincing short putt from Garcia who had a gilt edge chance to win the Green Jacket.

To be continued...

Patrons Served Up A Treat On 18

It's tense stuff on 18!

Justin Rose puts his approach to within ten feet before Sergio replies within half that distance.

It's a putting comp...

Honours Even Again!

Rose finds the bunker on seventeen and can't get up and down for his par.

Sergio pars which means we're locked at nine under par standing on the 18th tee!

A Poor Effort From The Americans

Jordan Spieth and Rickie Fowler tidy up on 18, both ending up one under par.

A really disappointing effort from the pair who started the round in contention.

Advantage Rose

Both players hit their tee shots on sixteen to within six feet.

Rose up first and it's in!

Garcia misses!! It's a poor putt in actual fact and it's advantage Rose again...

Eagle By Garcia!

A sensational approach from Garcia on fifteen gives Garcia an eagle.

Rose replies with a two putt birdie which means the pair are tied at the top on nine under par.

Garcia Halves Rose's Lead

Not quite a two-shot swing but Garcia birdies fourteen to get to within a shot of Justin Rose at the top of the leaderboard.

Rose makes a clutch putt for par.

The pair have a chat as they walk down the fifteenth.

Four holes to play!

What Was That About Momentum?

Garcia knocks it close on fourteen while Rose has a tricky two putt.

We could see a two shot swing here!

As You Were

Garcia's visit to the bushes doesn't cost him a shot on thirteen and gets a bonus when Rose fails to convert his short birdie putt to go three ahead.

Rose is still in control but could that have been a momentum swing?

All Looking Rosey For Justin

Justin Rose has a two shot lead over playing partner Sergio Garcia who has found the bushes down the left hand side of thirteen.

It's a familiar story for Garcia when in contention in a major. He could still make his par but Rose will be eyeing up a birdie.

Matt Kuchar and Charl Schwartzel are tied in third place on five under par.

Rose Leads By Two

Another dropped shot from Garcia sees Rose take a two shot lead through eleven.

Thomas Pieters has birdied four in a row to go six under par level in second with Garcia whilst Matt Kuchar is a shot back on -5.
