Sergio Garcia conducted a pre-Masters conference call from a hospital on Tuesday after his wife’s water broke. On Wednesday, the defending champ paid tribute to the tournament with the birth of the couple’s first kid.
Azalea Garcia was welcomed into the world early in the morning, according to The Augusta Chronicle’s Scott Michaux. The lovely first name, of course, honouring the pretty plants for which Augusta National is renowned.

First off, congrats to Sergio and Angela. The name shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise considering the couple’s Masters-themed baby reveal. And last year’s tournament also seemed to swing in Sergio’s favor on the 13th hole, which is also named Azalea. But still, this is quite a turnaround for a man who used to not be a big fan of the Masters venue.
