Sergio Garcia beat Justin Rose in a dramatic play-off for the Masters on Sunday, to win his first ever major championship.

Rose had overturned an early three-stroke deficit to lead by a shot after 16 holes, but bogeyed the 17th and then failed to convert a birdie attempt from seven feet on the last.

That left Garcia with a putt to win his first major title at the 74th attempt, but his putt from five feet slid past the hole and left the Ryder Cup team-mates tied on nine under par.

However Garcia held his nerve to win the play-off, on the day that Spanish golfing great Seve Ballesteros would have celebrated his 60th birthday.
