Golf World Reacts To Sergio Winning The Masters

After years of coming up short in his previous 72 major championship starts, it seemed like the talented Sergio Garcia was destined to go down as one of the greatest players to never win a major.

But on a magical Sunday at iconic Augusta National, under bright sunny skies, the 37-year-old Spaniard finally came through, and walked off into the Georgia sunset as a champion whose legacy will live on forever – just like his boyhood idol, Seve Ballesteros.

While Justin Rose is a classy and well-respected champion (and easy to cheer for on any other Sunday), most of the golf world, and its millions of fans, were rooting for the popular star-struck Garcia. And so after his golf ball caught the right edge of the 18th hole’s cup and dropped, the reaction on social media was fast and furious.

Tweets and Instagram posts poured in from all over the world. Here’s a quick round up.
