2012 Masters: Bubba Watson Wins Two-Hole Playoff To Become Masters Champion

Bubba Watson took home the green jacket from the Augusta National Golf Club on Sunday after winning the 2012 Masters Tournament following a two-hole playoff against Louis Oosthuizen.

Watson and Oosthuizen had been in the same pairing during Sunday's final round at Augusta. After that round, both were tied at 10-under-par for the tournament and were sent to a sudden death playoff. Watson and Oosthuizen narrowly missed puts on the first playoff hole (18) and hit bad approach shots on the second playoff hole (10). Watson recovered from the approach shot the best even though his shot went the furthest from the fairway (into the woods in fact). Oosthuizen lipped out a put which forced him to take a bogey for the hole. Watson's amazing shot from the pine straw allowed him to par the hole and become the Masters champion.

Scott Stallings, who was born in Wooster, also participated in the 2012 Masters Tournament. Stallings shot 2-over-par for the tournament after shooting 1-over-par on Sunday. He finished tied for 27th.
