With the pressure mounting, Sergio Garcia stepped up and delivered a tournament-winning shot.

In the first playoff hole at the 2017 Masters Tournament, Garcia stayed focused and sunk the clutch shot to win against Justin Rose.

Watch a video of the putt and celebration below.

With Rose’s putt on the 18th hole lipping out, the Spaniard had an opportunity to win the tournament in regulation. But Garcia’s putt missed just to the right of the hole and The Masters went to a playoff.

Before that, Garcia was shooting a stellar round and finished at 3-under par 69. He had four birdies — one in the playoff — two bogeys and an eagle to keep him out in front of the pack and capped it off with the unforgettable moment on the green of hole 18.

Garcia shot a 71 in the first round, 69 in the second and 70 in the third for one of the more impressive four rounds of golf at Augusta.
