2012 Masters Champion: Bubba Watson Beats Louis Oosthuizen In Sudden Death

Bubba Watson had one remarkable round of golf at the 2012 Masters. Watson managed four straight birdies on the back nine to tie Louis Oosthuizen on the 16th green, then managed two pars on 17 and 18. After missing a chance to win the Masters on the first playoff hole when he missed a birdie putt just to the left, Watson got another chance at glory with a remakable shot on the second playoff hole at ten.

Oosthuizen had a bad approach from his second shot and didn't do well with his third, meaning Watson only needed to two putt from there to secure victory.

Fred Couples and Ben Crane did pretty well for themselves, finishing in ties at 12th and 17th respectively. Crane was there to meet his friend Watson on the tenth green after he made the putt to win his first green jacket.
