GARCIA POSING WITH HIS FIANCE, ANGELA AKINS 6. SHOT OF EMPIRE STATE BUILDING STORY: Masters Champion Sergio Garcia started his post-Augusta "Green Jacket" tour atop the Empire State Building in New York on Monday (April 10). Garcia ended nearly two decades of major disappointment when he beat England's Justin Rose in a playoff to win the U.S. Masters on Sunday (April 9), donning the Green Jacket on what would have been the 60th birthday of his hero, the late Seve Ballesteros. After 73 majors, four heartbreaking runner-up finishes and years of self doubt, Garcia finally delivered the long awaited title when his 12-foot birdie putt at the first extra hole dropped into the cup at the par-four 18th, triggering a massive cheer from a gallery that had been on the edge of their seats.
