Well done Sergio!

April 12th, 2017

As the only player to break par in all four rounds at Augusta National Golf Club during the Masters, Sergio Garcia, with 71, 69, 70 and 69, was the worthy winner of an exciting contest from which European Golf in general can take great encouragement.

But is this a new beginning for Spanish Golf in particular? This fascinating possibility has been addressed by our guest writer, Alejandro Nagy, and his article has already attracted considerable interest. Enjoy the read or ‘buen provecho’ as they (might) say in Spain.
