Sergio Garcia will be hoping to emulate his compatriots Jose Maria Olazabal and Seve Ballesteros at the Masters Tournament
The 40-year-old is one of the best Spanish golfers ever having won 36 international tournaments as a professional.
Garcia, who is currently ranked 40th in the world, won his only major championship in 2017 and it was the Masters title.
The Borriol-born player is now keen to become the third Spanish player to win two Masters titles after Olazabal and Ballesteros.

Garcia broke through and won the Masters title with a win on the first sudden-death playoff hole against Justin Rose three year ago.

As a result, he became the third Spanish player to win the Masters, after Ballesteros and Olazabal.
Garcia is brimming with confidence at the moment as he won the 2020 Sanderson Farms Championship last month.

Garcia is happy with his form heading into this year's Masters Tournament as he looks to clinch his second major championship.
"I feel good about my game. I feel like I’m hitting the ball nicely. I feel like every part of my game is in very good shape," Garcia said in the New York Post.
"It obviously could be better without a doubt, but it can always be. But I’m excited about it. 
"I just hope and wish that I can go to Augusta next week and carry some of those good feelings and give myself a shot at a second jacket. I feel good about it."
