  1. Farewell golfing chums...

    Sergio Garcia

    And on that run of emotional pictures, we will call it a day. That was some Masters and by golly, some final day.

    It had a hole in one from Matt Kuchar, threats from down the leaderboard and of course, some serious Sergio Garcia spirit.

    A massive hat tip for you Justin Rose, a credit for sure.

    But Sergio, the floor is yours, at last.

    Thanks for staying with us, thank you for the texts and tweets, sleep well and I guess we will see you in May as we will be live-texting the Players Championship from 11-14 May.

    After that Augusta treat, how could you possibly miss the next big golfing installment?

    Fore left!

  2. The moment...

    In goes the ball...

    Garcia and his fiance in the background sink to their knees...

    And then it sinks in...

  3. Sergio on point...

    Looking at the stats, only Soren Kjeldsen was better off the tee than Sergio. The Dane hit 46 fairways out of 56, Sergio managed one less. Garcia was also fifth on the average drive distance, so he married power with accuracy.

    And from the fairway, he hit 54 of 72 greens - as did Justin Rose - with only Paul Casey better on 56.

    Added together, it won him a mighty fine prize.

  4. Vamos...

  5. Post update

    We've sat here live texting for around 40 hours over four days and oddly, I kind of wish it was still going on.

    You just cannot beat that back nine on Masters Sunday. Captivating, it takes you up and down, back and forth, and does so against a gorgeous backdrop.

  6. Some entertainment...

    Looking at the order of UK Twitter trends it must be the case that Line of Duty is pretty good to get in above Sergio.

    And what about Seve, still trending, still making people talk.

  7. Rose magnanimous in defeat

    Speaking on BBC Two, he said: "I'm disappointed but I don't know quote how I feel. It all happens quite quick in a sudden death play-off.

    "Sergio had a great comeback by making par on 13 after driving into the trees and that was the turning point for him. At that point i was in control.

    "I hit a really good putt on 18 in regulation play and thought that was going to go in and I guess I under-read my putt in the play-off because of that and that's why it went low.

    "But I'm really happy for Sergio. We've been friends for a long time and playing golf against each other since we were 14. 

    "I'm going to be disappointed for about a month but then golf will take over and I'll go after my goals with the US Open and Open at Royal Birkdale coming up.

    "I'm surrpised how cool I felt. It's a sign of me maturing as a player. I see myself having many more chances to come at Augusta."

  8. Picture of the day...

    Sergio Garcia

    On his opponent, Justin Rose, Sergio Garcia:  "At the end of the day we are both trying to win but we are all people. We have to represent our game. We are good friends so we were very respectful of each other. We were cheering each other on. We wanted to beat the other guy, not the other lose it.

    "When I came here in '99 as an amateur I felt this course could give me one major. That thought changed down the years because I became uncomfortable. But I have made peace with it and accepted what Augusta gives and takes."

  9. Olazabal's message

    2017 Masters champion Sergio Garcia in the Butler Cabin: "It has been such a long time coming. I thought I had it on 18. I hit the putt exactly how I wanted but it didn't quite break how I thought. I knew I was playing well. I felt the calmest I ever felt in a major. Even after a couple of bogeys I was still positive that there were a lot of holes I could get to. I am so happy.

    "It is amazing. To do it on his [Seve's] 60th birthday and to join him and Jose Maria Olazabal, my two idols in golf, it is something amazing. Jose Maria texted on Thursday saying how much he believed in me and to believe in myself. Everybody has been great. My whole family, my fiance."

  10. A jacket, a hug and giggles...

  11. The champion...

    Sergio Garcia speaks ahead of receiving his Green Jacket: "I felt like this course was probably going to give me one major. That thought changed over the years as I started feeling uncomfortable on the course but I came to peace with it and accepted it."

  12. Post update

    Butler cabin

    This may be out of place, but the backdrop in Butler Cabin looks like it could be rented out to slot in as the backdrop for some sort of home shopping channel...

    Anyway, back to Sergio...

  13. Post update

    Sergio Garcia is nodding along as questions are asked and I get the feeling he will do well to get out of here without tears flowing. Hang in there Sergio, you've made it this far...

  14. To the cabin...

    In Butler Cabin, top amateur Stewart Hagestad enters, as does 2016 champion Danny Willett clasping a Green Jacket. In the middle of the two is Sergio Garcia, sat upright, good posture.

  15. WATCH: Garcia wins The Masters

  16. Post update

    We are about to head to Buter Cabin, where dreams really do come true...
