Sergio Garcia waited a long time to capture his first major championship, and now the 2017 Masters champion has the honor of wearing his new green jacket anywhere he pleases.

On Friday, the current world No. 5 took the opportunity to flaunt his new piece of clothing in the stands at Wimbledon to support his fellow countrymen.

Earlier in the day, the 37-year-old was seen in the player’s box watching Spain’s Roberto Bautista Agut take on Kei Nishikori of Japan. With the help of Garcia’s support, Agut prevailed 6-4, 7-6(3), 3-6, 6-3.

Then, Garcia moved to Centre Court and the Royal Box to watch Rafael Nadal play Russia’s Karen Khachanov. Garcia was joined by fellow sporting icon David Beckham as they watched the heavily favored Nadal cruise in straight sets 6-1, 6-4, 7-6.

Earlier in the week, Garcia took to Twitter to document his arrival in London with his fiancée Angela Akins.


Garcia, who won at Augusta in a nail-biting sudden-death playoff this past April, wore the snazzy jacket in spite of balmy temperatures in the mid 80s.

Can you really blame him?
