Sergio Garcia will be eager to clinch his second Masters Tournament title when he competes at Augusta National Golf Club. 
 
The Spanish superstar, who competes on the PGA Tour and European Tour, has won 36 international tournaments as a professional. 
 
Garcia has spent much of his career in the top 10 of the Official World Golf Ranking and he is currently ranked 40th. 
 
The 41-year-old's most notable wins are the 2008 Players Championship and the 2017 Masters Tournament.
 
Garcia, who has achieved career earnings of more than US$43 million, defeated Justin Rose in a sudden-death playoff, after they both completed the 72 holes in nine-under-par.
 
The win came in GarcĂ­a's 19th Masters appearance and 74th major, the most by any player before their first title.
 
Previously, Garcia had 22 top-ten finishes in majors (including three at the Masters, the best a tie for fourth in 2004).
 
The Borriol-born golfer, who is noted for strong iron play and accuracy, was the first Spaniard to win at Augusta in eighteen years, since Jose Maria Olazabal in 1999.
 
Garcia stated that he would not take part in this year's final Masters tune-up event in a bid to avoid potential Covid-19 exposure. 
 
"I'm not playing the week before [the Masters], we have fans back, so you know that at any time you might get it from any one of them," Garcia said.
 
"I would love to get closer to the fans, but there's too much at risk, at stake for us and if we get Covid because of anything, we're the one that pays. 
 
"We pay the price. No one else does," said Garcia. "So we have to be very careful as the fans come back into our game, which is great to have them, don't get me wrong."
