AUGUSTA, Ga. – Sergio Garcia had just slipped the coveted green jacket over his shoulders when he was asked about another garment he will need this summer.
Garcia is scheduled to be married in July and was asked if he would consider wearing his green jacket at the wedding ceremony?
“We were just talking about it. This one is a little bit too big,” he said of the jacket he wore at the award’s ceremony. “It would be nice, but I don't know. We'll get to that point when we get there.”
Garcia announced his engagement to Angela Akins in January and said her influence helped lift him to his first major championship, which he won in a playoff on Sunday at Augusta National over Justin Rose.
“It’s been a long time coming,” Akins said of Garcia’s victory. “All week we were talking about he could do this, he could do this. His mindset is great.”
