Watson Wins Green Jacket At The Masters

The Masters has a new champion and his name is Bubba Watson. The 33-year-old, who played with a pink driver over the weekend, has never taken a golf lesson, but that didn’t stop him from taking his first Masters.

Watson performed some magic by hooking his wedge out of the pine trees in a blind shot that landed about 10 feet from the hole. From there, Bubba made par and that was all he needed to win in the second playoff hole.

“I’ve never had a dream go this far, so I can’t really say it’s a dream come true,” Watson said. “I don’t even know what happened on the back nine. … Nervous on every shot, every putt. Went into a playoff. I got in these trees and hit a crazy shot that I saw in my head, and somehow I’m here talking to you with a green jacket on.”

Tiger Woods couldn’t maintain his comeback, finishing 15 strokes behind the leaders in a tie for 41st place with his highest score ever at the Masters in his pro career.
