Bubba Watson wins U.S. Master's

| No Comments

Bubba Watson won the 76th U.S. Masters as he beat South African Louis Oosthuizen at the second hole of a sudden death playoff at Augusta National on Sunday, ESPN reports.

Watson, who was winning his first major title, played a remarkable shot from the trees at the 10th to find the green, according to a CNN article.

"I never got this far in my dreams," said Watson.

Oosthuizen's highlight of the afternoon was his double-eagle on the par-5 second hole, ESPN reports. The miraculous shot resulted in an albatross, one of the rarest occurrences in the sport of golf.

It was only the fourth in three-under-par double-eagle the history of the Masters.
