Sergio Garcia is Considering Wearing His Green Jacket for His Wedding

Sergio Garcia is the proud owner of a nice new green jacket after his dramatic win at the Masters on Sunday. Garcia, who is engaged to Angela Akins, has been making the post-Masters victory tour and is beaming with joy in every picture he’s taken in the jacket.

Now he’s even considering wearing it in his wedding in July.

Via Golf Channel:

“We were just talking about it. This one is a little bit too big,” he said of the jacket he wore at the awards ceremony on Sunday. “It would be nice, but I don’t know. We’ll get to that point when we get there.”

Who could blame him?

Garcia won his first major in his 74th major start. He went 308 PGA Tour starts before winning a major.

Here’s how long it took a few other players you may have heard of to claim their first major championship win as a professional.

Jack Nicklaus – 17 PGA Tour starts – Nicklaus turned professional at the end of 1961 and won his first major at the U.S. Open in his second major start.

Tiger Woods – 15 PGA Tour starts – Woods won the 1997 Masters in his first major start as a professional

Phil Mickelson – Turned professional in 1992 and went 13 years, 270 PGA Tour starts and 42 major starts before winning his first major in his 11th Masters start as a professional.

Rory McIlroy – Turned professional in 2007. 33 PGA Tour starts and 9 major starts before first win at U.S. Open in 2011.

Jordan Spieth – First professional season was 2013. 60 PGA Tour starts and 7 major starts before first major win at the Masters in 2015.

Jason Day – Day turned professional in 2006 and played in 7 PGA Tour events that season on sponsor’s exemptions. He went 154 PGA Tour starts and 20 major starts before first win in 2015 at PGA Championship

Dustin Johnson – DJ turned pro at the end of 2007 and went 192 PGA Tour starts and 28 major starts before winning the U.S. Open in 2016.

Next up…
