Tournaments:
Masters Tournament: first major championship of the men’s season ends (as ever) in high drama, and sees its third Spanish winner i.e. Sergio Garcia.
ANA Inspiration: first major of the year, and yet another example of an armchair viewer and shameful rules interpretations trampling on the true spirit of golf.

Sergio Garcia: After 74 starts in major championships, and on the late Seve Ballesteros’s 60th birthday, Sergio wins his first major at Augusta National.
Lexi Thompson: deserving winner of a second major championship, but denied by the fiasco finish at the ANA Inspiration.
