Akins played competitive golf through college in her native Texas, first at Texas Christian and then at Texas.
“She’s a competitor,” he said, “and it kind of brings a little extra fire out of me.”
If García had any questions about Akins being the one, they were answered on the Saturday of last year’s Ryder Cup in Minnesota.
McIlroy, after finishing his own round at Augusta National, had cried while he watched
the broadcast of García snapping his 0-for-73 streak in major tournaments
McIlroy said he became emotional “just to see what he’s been through, and his struggles.” He added, “I’m getting goose bumps even talking about it.”
And Spieth, who won the 2015 Masters in his eighth major appearance as a professional, was among the
dozens of players who sent congratulatory texts after García’s birdie on the first playoff hole.
“Bear is obsessed with Sergio,” Akins said with a laugh.
He just couldn’t find the right girl.”
García was coming off a broken engagement when he met Akins in the spring of 2015,
during one of her first events after being hired as a reporter for Golf Channel.
García was referring first and foremost to her when he credited his newfound calmness on the course to the people around him who, he said, “care about you
and tell you things the way they are when they have to.”
García has cultivated such relationships with his peers, as well.
