  • He kept his word, despite his wife Angela’s water breaking in the morning
  • Garcia took part in a teleconference with reporters from a hospital room 

Masters champion Sergio Garcia held the most unusual press conference of his career on Tuesday as his wife Angela prepared to give birth to the couple’s first child.

Garcia was due to speak to reporters about his title defence at 8am local time (1300GMT) in Austin, Texas and kept his word despite having to take part in the teleconference from a hospital room.

‘It’s been an eventful morning,’ Garcia, 38, said. ‘About an hour and a half ago Angela’s waters broke so we’re at the hospital right now, kind of checking in.

‘It’s very exciting and nerve-wracking at the same time. It’s kind of surreal. I’m excited and a little nervous for Angela and the baby to make sure everything goes well.

Garcia claimed his first major title at the 74th attempt at Augusta National last year, beating Ryder Cup team-mate Justin Rose on the first play-off hole.
