Rose said: ‘I am really happy for Sergio. I would love to be wearing the Green Jacket but if it wasn't me, I am glad it is him. He has had his share of heartache over the years. We have been friends for a long time and playing golf against each other since we were 14 years old. ‘

Rose, 36, held a two-shot lead with five holes to go but lost when Garcia birdied the first extra hole on Sunday.

‘I feel it is a tournament I can still do well in,’ said Rose. ‘It's a course you can get to know and be competitive here for a long, long time.’

RORY: Green Jacket would have been good for the wedding! RORY McILROY dreamed of winning a Green Jacket that he could wear at his forthcoming wedding. McIlroy, who has just signed a new £89million deal with Nike, will wed American fiancé Erica Stoll, a USPGA worker. He secured another top ten finish at Augusta, so must wait again for a chance to win the one Major title eluding him as he seeks to become the first European to complete a career Grand Slam.

McIlroy has also revealed he will make some equipment changes following the Masters - including playing with a different ball: ‘I thought my golf ball this week was doing weird things in the wind, very inconsistent. So there's one thing I will change and try to work on.’ The deal with Nike is for 10 years and, as Nike has stopped making clubs and balls, it lets McIlroy’s team negotiate with equipment companies. At the moment, McIlroy is using Callaway drivers and irons, Titleist wedges and ball and a Scotty Cameron putter.

Rushmore Golf Club, Tollard Royal, SP5 5QB

McIlroy revealed that he had dreamed of standing at the wedding ceremony in one of the most famous jackets on the planet: ‘It would have been nice to walk down the aisle in the Green Jacket. Would I have done that? Oh yeah, if the members would have allowed me. If Mr Payne (Augusta chairman) would have allowed me. We're very excited. It's a great time in our lives and it's all about that over the next couple of weeks and I'll come back at the Players Championship refreshed and a married man and start a new chapter in my life.’

Each would obviously like the world No.2 to endorse their products. However, without a logo allowed on his Nike cap or clothes these could lead to complex arrangements.

Nike said they were stopping making equipment in a competitive marketplace in which it only managed to secure nine per cent share despite the patronage of Tiger Woods and McIlroy.

McIlroy revealed that he had dreamed of standing at the wedding ceremony in one of the most famous jackets on the planet: ‘It would have been nice to walk down the aisle in the Green Jacket. Would I have done that? Oh yeah, if the members would have allowed me. If Mr Payne (Augusta chairman) would have allowed me. We're very excited. It's a great time in our lives and it's all about that over the next couple of weeks and I'll come back at the Players Championship refreshed and a married man and start a new chapter in my life.’

Each would obviously like the world No.2 to endorse their products. However, without a logo allowed on his Nike cap or clothes these could lead to complex arrangements.

Nike said they were stopping making equipment in a competitive marketplace in which it only managed to secure nine per cent share despite the patronage of Tiger Woods and McIlroy.

RORY: Green Jacket would have been good for the wedding! RORY McILROY dreamed of winning a Green Jacket that he could wear at his forthcoming wedding. McIlroy, who has just signed a new £89million deal with Nike, will wed American fiancé Erica Stoll, a USPGA worker. He secured another top ten finish at Augusta, so must wait again for a chance to win the one Major title eluding him as he seeks to become the first European to complete a career Grand Slam.

McIlroy has also revealed he will make some equipment changes following the Masters - including playing with a different ball: ‘I thought my golf ball this week was doing weird things in the wind, very inconsistent. So there's one thing I will change and try to work on.’ The deal with Nike is for 10 years and, as Nike has stopped making clubs and balls, it lets McIlroy’s team negotiate with equipment companies. At the moment, McIlroy is using Callaway drivers and irons, Titleist wedges and ball and a Scotty Cameron putter.

Rushmore Golf Club, Tollard Royal, SP5 5QB

McIlroy revealed that he had dreamed of standing at the wedding ceremony in one of the most famous jackets on the planet: ‘It would have been nice to walk down the aisle in the Green Jacket. Would I have done that? Oh yeah, if the members would have allowed me. If Mr Payne (Augusta chairman) would have allowed me. We're very excited. It's a great time in our lives and it's all about that over the next couple of weeks and I'll come back at the Players Championship refreshed and a married man and start a new chapter in my life.’

Each would obviously like the world No.2 to endorse their products. However, without a logo allowed on his Nike cap or clothes these could lead to complex arrangements.

The two women had never played with one another before being put together in the same foursome during a club practice session.
