I am posting quite late in regards to the Masters which concluded on Sunday, but I're many of you heard Bubba Watson won his first PGA Tour Title. The Masters are my favourite golf tournament to watch every year, especially the back 9 holes on the final day, and this year's tournament provided lots of excitement!
Watson beat South Africa's Louis Oosthuizen in a sudden-death two hole playoff, which features a shot by Watson shown in the picture above. Teeing off on the 10th hole for the playoff, both players had their shots go into the woods. Ooshuizen respectively hit his ball close to the green and got out of trouble, but Watson was stuck so deep in the woods that he had to make a hook shot, and when he did, it landed with a few feet of the hole! Many are calling it one of the greatest golf shots in history. Ooshuizen made his own unbelievable shot earlier in the day on number two, when he made an albatross (or double eagle), which is three under par, from 253 yards out. The day also featured two hole-in-ones on the same hole, which is quite rare. As for Tiger Woods, he finished at +5, which is one of his worst showings at the Masters ever.
