Sergio Garcia began handling Masters champion duties in astonishing fashion Tuesday, speaking on a conference call from a hospital where his wife was about to give birth to their first child.

The Masters champion decided against postponing the phone-in conference organised by Augusta officials, pointing out that it was wife Angela who was doing all the hard work.

"It's been an eventful morning", García said.

Garcia said Angela's water broke about an hour and a half prior to the 9 a.m. teleconference. We're at the hospital, it's very exciting and nerve-wracking at the same time. It's kind of surreal.

"I am not the one having it so I'm kind of on the outside looking in but I am excited and a little nervous for Angela and baby to make sure everything goes well". It's amusing how the was supposed to be on Sunday, but it looks like she's coming a little bit early, and we're excited.

He added: "Obviously as we've been expecting a girl, the nursery has been painted light grey and pink". "I don't know if I should be", Garcia said.

"We also have some cute little dresses from Augusta that they sent us, so we're very excited for her to wear them". I've realized after winning the Masters, I realize how much bigger it is than I thought it was. It should be fun.

Nearly two decades of heartbreak disappeared in the Georgia twilight when Garcia slipped into a coveted dream jacket, triumphing at a tournament he once said he hated.

"I am fortunate to have had an unbelievable career, an fantastic life and now it is getting even better with a win at Augusta, getting married to my best friend and an wonderful woman and now having our first child. We've enjoyed every minute of it, and we can't wait for what the future is going to bring us".

Garcia, 38, won his first major championship in his 19th start at Augusta National. It's been an honour, and I'll try to carry the title as well as I can.

It is fair to surmise that Sergio García is taking his responsibilities as Masters champion seriously. "We all know what kind of player he is and player he can be when he's healthy".
