After vacationing in Switzerland with his fiancee, Angela Akins, a former Golf Channel reporter whom he is scheduled to marry in July after the British Open, Garcia is ready to make his 18th consecutive appearance at The Players. He started as Tiger Woods' rival as a 19-year old teenager.

"I was telling Rory McIlroy and some of the other guys that I've been very fortunate to have awesome cheers, with 15-20,000 people chanting my name at Augusta and Ryder Cups. I have to accept that I'm just playing for second or third".
"They see that I haven't changed in 20 years that I've been here on Tour". "I always try to be true to myself and as genuine as I can be".
"That was one of the most unbelievable experiences I've had, " he said. His public comments reflect that.
"Yeah, it's been unbelievable". "I just want to keep doing more of the same thing". The support from the fans and everyone around the world has been unbelievable. "I think that at the end of the day that people see that, and now they're even happier because, yeah, we won at Augusta". It shows me how much my fellow players respect me and care about me.
Following so many close calls and final-round flops by Garcia, his Masters win clearly has touched the world of golf the past four weeks.
The Players Championship is the flawless tournament for Garcia to get back to work, considering he was victorious there only two years ago. "I love the golf course, and if I manage to play well, I should have a chance on Sunday". "I feel like I'm still swinging the club well".
Garcia added that he "needed" the ace there, given his poor start in the first round of the tournament. "Hopefully. Hopefully we'll be able to say that on Sunday".
In truth, before the hole-in-one stunner, Garcia was struggling in his first tournament back since winning The Masters a month ago - approaching the 17th he was three over par. I respect you. You respect me. I'm not going to lie to you. "I'm sure a lot of things will go through my mind about that week".
Perhaps the greatest thing Garcia has enjoyed since the win has been the reaction of his peers, like McIlroy. "I feel like I have even more room for improvement".
"I've been saying it, I'm still the same person", Garcia said.
