Sergio Garcia may have named daughter after hole at Augusta National

Adele is his wife's middle name.

The Masters gets underway from April 5-9th where Sergio defends the title he won past year by beating Justin Rose in a playoff. "Hopefully, we have a great, healthy baby girl that grows up to be an wonderful woman and we don't have to worry too much about her".

Sergio Garcia and his wife Angela Akins welcomed their first child into the world on Wednesday, and there's a pretty strong chance the couple named the baby girl after a hole at Augusta National.

Azalea shares her name with the par-five 13th hole at Augusta National where her father previous year sunk a seven-foot putt in the final round to save par after landing in the bushes and taking a penalty drop. Boosted by that, he went on to beat Rose at the first extra hole in a play-off, claiming a first major win at the 74th attempt on the day that Seve Ballesteros would have celebrated his 60th birthday.

The name of the 13th hole?


Sergio was scheduled to speak to reporters about his title defence in Austin, Texas on Tuesday - and kept the appointment despite having to call from a hospital room.

"It's been an eventful morning", he said. "About an hour and a half ago, Angela's water broke, so we are at the hospital right now". Azalea - after the bright pink flowers that decorate the course.

"It's very exciting and nerve-racking at the same time. I'm excited and a little nervous for Angela and the baby to make sure everything goes well".

'Beautiful Azalea Adele Garcia was born on March 14 at 1:54am.
