— An Australian rules Augusta!
Adam Scott holed a 12-foot birdie putt on the second playoff hole to beat Angel Cabrera and win the Masters. Scott and Cabrera birdied the final hole of regulation and parred the first sudden-death hole. Cabrera almost pulled out his third Major title, but his birdie try on the first extra hole just missed the cup.
Scott claimed his first Major victory and made up for his performance at the end of last year's British Open, where he bogeyed the last four holes to lose by a stroke to Ernie Els.
Scott closed with a 3-under 69 for a 9-under total in becoming the first Australian to win the event. Cabrera fired a 2-under 70 to turn the Masters into a sudden-death affair for the third time in four years.
Jason Day had the lead until he bogeyed the 16th and 17th holes. He finished two strokes out of the playoff at minus-7, two shots better than Tiger Woods and Marc Leishman. Third-round co-leader Brandt Snedeker and Thorbjorn Olesen tied for sixth at 4-under.
Defending champion Bubba Watson finished the tournament at 7-over, 17 shots worse than his title run. Watson's final-round 77 included a 10 on the 12th hole.
Fourteen-year-old Guan Tianlang wrapped up a memorable first Masters by shooting a 3-over 75 in the final round for a 12-over total. He received a silver cup as the low amateur after becoming the youngest player to make the cut at a major in the PGA Tour era.
