Sergio Garcia has won The Masters and claimed his first ever Major Championship. The Spaniard played sublimely throughout the four-day tournament at Augusta and, with a dramatic finish, finally achieved his golfing dream.
After sinking his winning putt in the play-off against Justin Rose, Garcia made his way to the clubhouse to claim the famous “Green Jacket” which has been worn by some of golf’s most iconic names. On his wrist at that moment, Sergio wore an OMEGA Seamaster Planet Ocean “Deep Black” – a superb watch in black and blue that matches his style and precision on the course.
To bring him luck, Garcia received the watch on Wednesday, just one day before the tournament began. He proudly shared a close-up picture on his Instagram account and still had the timepiece with him as he hoisted the Masters Trophy.
Sergio Garcia has been closely associated with OMEGA since 2003. Raynald Aeschlimann, the President and CEO of OMEGA, sent his congratulations after The Masters win. “Sergio has proven that great things come with time. We always believed in him. He is a player that shows his emotions and that win was a perfect display of who he is as a person. The final round was incredibly close and was such a great advertisement for the sport of golf. The fact that Sergio won and clinched his first Major title was the perfect way for it to end.”
