Who is Sergio Garcia’s wife Angela Akins Garcia?

Angela, who used to present and report for the Golf Channel, has studied at the University of Texas, where she was also a part of the college golf team. Reports state that the lovely couple met when Angela was still working as a reporter. Angela continues to play golf with a handicap of three.

That being said, Angela’s family also has a sporting history. Her father Marty played as a quarterback for the Texas Longhorns. Her grandfather Ray, on the other hand, earned a name for himself by coaching the Texas High-school football team. Football is closely linked to Akins, whose cousin is NFL icon Drew Brees, the retired New Orleans Saints quarterback.

Angela and Garcia have two children together. Their first child, Azalea Adele, was born in 2018 and has been named after the flower which was there at Augusta National’s 13th hole. Their youngest, Enzo, was born last year in April.

Did Garcia really start winning following his engagement to Angela?

Along with his Masters’ win in 2017, Garcia also won the Dubai Desert Classic after getting engaged in January. He finished second twice during the Open, and also had eight more top-ten finishes during the season. Even though the Masters 2017 win is his sole major win, the improvement in his performances is noteworthy.

Where else has Sergio Garcia’s wife worked?

According to reports, Angela has also worked as a golf reporter for Fox Sports Southwest. She later relocated to Florida after securing her Golf Channel job. While Angela is Garcia’s first wife, the former reporter was previously married to golfer Ross Hamann.
