The Masters 2012, Sudden-Death Edition: Louis Oosthuizen, Bubba Watson To Duel For Green Jacket

Free golf coming up at the 2012 Masters! Louis Oosthuizen's albatross reverberated throughout the final round at Augusta National, putting him on top and keeping him there throughout. Bubba Watson, his golfing partner, did manage to rally on the back nine to tie things up with Oosthuizen on 16.

Here's what happens in the sudden death playoff:

The tied golfers (in this case Oosthuizen and Watson) would go back to the 18th tee, and if they were still tied, they'd start back up at the 10th tee. If tied after that, they'd move onto 11, then onto 12 if they were tied after that, and so on, so forth.

Both of the two Seattle golfers did alright, as Fred Couples and Ben Crane finished in the top 20. Couples had a round of 72 to finish in a tie for 12th, and Crane was one-over on the day to finish at one-under in a tie for 17th.
