I was so delighted to see Sergio win a Major Championship after knocking on the door for so long. But I am even more proud that he remained positive and kept believing he could. No doubt Sergio is a winner and not close to being finished. I’m pleased the world’s media have nominated him for the Laureus Breakthrough Award. After overcoming the adversity like he did throughout his career and in that particular Masters, he really deserves this accolade. ... See MoreSee Less
