A look at three scorecards from the final round of the Masters on Sunday at Augusta National:

SERGIO GARCIA

71-69-70-69 (Winner)

Highlight: His chances of winning appeared to be over after consecutive bogeys on 10 and 11, until he birdied 14 and eagled 15 to tie Justin Rose at 9 under.

What he said: “I felt today, I felt the calmest I’ve ever felt in a major, a major Sunday. And even after making a couple of bogeys I was still very positive. I still believed that there were a lot of holes that I could get to. And I hit some really good shots coming in. And I’m so happy.”

JUSTIN ROSE

71-72-67-69 (2nd)

Highlight: Rose shook off Garcia’s charge to birdie 16 and move to 10 under, but he bogeyed 17 to fall back into a tie that went to a playoff after both players missed birdie putts on 18. His tee shot on the first playoff hole leaked to the right, taking away his chance at a birdie.

What he said: “It must have been fun to watch. I felt pretty much in control of my game and the tournament for the most part all day, and Sergio did what he had to do to make a run and I came back at him. And the last hole or two, it is what it is.”

CHARL SCHWARTZEL

74-72-68-68 (3rd)

Highlight: Six birdies in the final round rocketed the 2011 Masters champ up the leaderboard.

What he said: “I really thought toward the end there, especially standing on the 14th fairway, if I could make another few birdies I would have had a really good chance, but Sergio and Justin, they’re really playing well now and the first two days was very difficult and on the weekend it was very good weather and I took advantage of that and played really well.”
