AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) — Lee Westwood already had qualified as the best player to have never won a major even before Sergio Garcia won the Masters.
Garcia only made it less of a debate.
The focus is sure to shift between now and the U.S. Open over who fits into that category. When the label first became popular in the early 1990s, it was easy to judge the candidates because of their victories, the number of majors they had played and how many times they came close to winning.
AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) — Eighteen years and 71 majors later, more tears for Sergio Garcia.
This time, they were accompanied by a smile.
Sunday at the Masters was a most joyous occasion, far different from when Garcia teed it up in his first major as a pro in the 1999 British Open at Carnoustie.

The majority of his press conference was taken up with questions about the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro and why he chose not to play. Spieth knew that was coming.
