Sergio Garcia has paid tribute to the Spanish fans after claiming a narrow victory on home soil at the Andalucia Valderrama Masters.
The Masters champion carded four-under 67 at Valderrama to claim a one-shot win over Joost Luiten, his third victory of the year and sixth career success on home soil.
Garcia mixed five birdies with a sole blemish during the final round, which also saw him close the gap on Tommy Fleetwood at the top of the Race to Dubai standings.
"The people were unbelievable, amazing, so many people came out and supported, it was really a treat," Garcia said after his win. "I want to dedicate this one to my wife Angela and our little baby coming next year in March.
"All three of us played amazing. Daniel (Brooks) played great with everything that he had on the line. Joost (Luiten) played unbelievable.
"I played really well and I felt like maybe I could get away and he just kept coming back and back and made it an amazing match.
"I stayed patient the whole time, I made sure the bad moments did not affect me too much and made a couple of really key putts coming in."
