Moments that can define a player’s career and cement their place in golfing history.  This one hour CBS Sports special takes viewers back to re-live some of those remarkable Sundays.  From Gene Sarazen’s personal account of the ”Shot Heard ‘Round The World” in 1935 all the way through Sergio Garcia’s insights into his stunning Green Jacket victory a year ago; these are the finishes that have made The Masters golf’s greatest and most anticipated event.


THE MASTERS: SERGIO! is a look at the unique and inspiring, personal journey of reigning Masters Champion Sergio Garcia.  From a golfing prodigy growing up in Spain, to that memorable Sunday last April, the personal and professional evolution of Garcia has been nothing short of remarkable.  Sergio tells his story in this compelling CBS Sports special.
