Sergio Garcia names daughter after hole at Augusta

Sergio Garcia names daughter after hole at Augusta

Sergio Garcia was in a hospital room Tuesday when he began his Masters conference call with the media.

Garcia, who proudly tweeted a photograph of the new arrival, right, isn't the first player to mark a Masters win in such a way as three-time champion Nick Faldo named one of his daughters, Georgia, after the state that is home to Augusta National.

"It's very exciting and nerve-racking at the same time".

Garcia put his tee shot into the trees at the 13th in last year's final round but rescued par on the hole, setting the stage for his birdie at 14 and eagle at 15 to match Britain's Justin Rose for the lead.

The Spanish star's wife, Angela gave birth to Azalea Adele Garcia yesterday, and he immediately posted a picture of his first child on Twitter.

"It is kind of, I don't know, surreal, I guess you may say. I'm excited and a little nervous for Angela and the baby to make sure everything goes well".

Azalea shares her name with the par-five 13th hole at Augusta National where her father past year sunk a seven-foot putt in the final round to save par after landing in the bushes and taking a penalty drop. "Trying to raise a girl the best way possible".

We're already looking forward to seeing little Azalea wearing this... At the end of the day, that's all we can hope for. "So, at the end of the day, that's all we can hope for, and hopefully we have a great, healthy baby girl that grows up to be an awesome woman, and we don't have to worry too much about her".
