"It's awesome to do it on Seve's 60th birthday and to join him and (Jose Maria) Olazabal, my two idols in golf, it's something wonderful".
"I'm sure he helped a little bit with some of those shots or some of those putts", Garcia said.
"What he said, he mentioned just that you know what you have to do, just believe in yourself. And being calm and not letting things get to me that I've done in the past".
Sergio Garcia, of Spain, talks to Justin Rose, of England, after making his birdie putt on the 18th green to win the Masters golf tournament after a playoff Sunday, April 9, 2017, in Augusta, Ga.
Rose teed off first on the 18th, pushing his drive right into the trees, while Garcia hit his drive down the fairway almost 300 yards.
Rose went back ahead with a birdie at the 16th, Garcia pulled even again when Rose bogeyed the 17th, and they both missed those short ones at the 18th. But Rose had fought back with three consecutive birdies to rejoin his playing partner on eight under as they turned into the back nine.
Now, all Rose could do was watch as Sergio Garcia curled in a 12-foot birdie to finish off a dramatic duel at Augusta National.
NOTEWORTHY: Garcia won the Masters in his 19th appearance, the most for any first-time champion. Garcia quickly took a two-stroke lead with birdies on Nos.
Afterwards Rose wasn't in the mood to punish himself for his missed opportunity on the 17th: "I can't pick holes in my performance". He made that putt for an eagle three to briefly take the lead. "Of course I could", said Rose.
"The support I felt out there, this week was wonderful", Garcia said. "I felt positive. I felt confident". "It would be wonderful if you win The Masters on such a special date", he tweeted before Garcia's impressive final round got him the clubhouse lead at nine-under with Rose.
The Longhorn great spent so much energy battling back from a poor tournament start.
SHOT OF THE DAY: Matt Kuchar sent the patrons into a frenzy with his hole-in-one at the 170-yard 16th hole, which briefly gave him hope of challenging the leaders.
Rose, who hit through the green in two shots, also made a par and what looked likely to be a four shot lead instead remained two and the game was on.
"I felt in control all day, but I'm really happy for Sergio", he told BBC Sport. 6, 7 and 8 to tie Garcia at 8 under going into the back nine.
Garcia hadn't been as tortured at Augusta National - he had three previous top-10 finishes and was the low amateur in 1999.
Most major starts before first win: Sergio Garcia 74; Tom Kite 72; Mark O'Meara 59; Darren Clarke 54. Garcia's wait was longer.
Six-time victor Jack Nicklaus hailed Sergio Garcia's victory in the Masters as "sensational" but admitted he feared the Spaniard was facing more major misery.
