Sergio Garcia was lauded after finally ending his wait for a major title with a thrilling Masters win on Sunday.
The Spaniard edged Justin Rose in a play-off at Augusta to claim a major crown that has been a long time coming.
His success pleased several fellow professionals, including Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy, while Rose was gracious in defeat.
Garcia, 37, was also praised by the likes of Spain World Cup winner Iker Casillas and Michael Phelps, arguably the greatest Olympian of all-time.
