Sergio Garcia will enjoy Masters week 'for rest of my life'

After his challenge combusted at this tournament five years ago, he said: "I don't have the thing I need to have". "I knew what I was capable of doing, and I believed that I could do it", he said.

Spurs relishing chase of Chelsea

Son Heung-min's brace capped a swashbuckling 4-0 win over Watford at a buoyant White Hart Lane , with Spurs moving four points behind Chelsea in second before Antonio Conte's men take on Bournemouth in Saturday's late kick-off.

He was strong and consistent and kept the Cubs in the ballgame. Read More
