Sergio Garcia has drawn level with legendary golfer Seve Ballesteros as the Spaniard with the most wins on the PGA Tour following his win at the AT&T Byron Nelson tournament in Texas last night.

Garcia secured his first win on the PGA Tour in four years with a sudden death play-off against Brooks Koepka.

The American found water off his first tee shot and his following approach to the green fell well short, giving Garcia a par putt for victory at the TPC Four Seasons in Irving.

"To be up there with Seve, it means the world to me and I kind of -- you can kind of say I went a little bit a la Seve today," he said.

"I definitely wasn't driving the ball great until the end and a couple of iron shots here and there, but I was chipping and putting great. Some of his wins were like that and I'm very proud of it."
