2012 Masters, Results And Recap: Bubba Watson Wins The 76th Masters

When it had finally come to an end on Sunday night at the 76th Masters Tournament at the Augusta National Golf Course, Bubba Watson was the winner.

The Georgia alum looked like a long shot for much of the weekend, seemingly always a few strokes back. However, he took off on the back nine with four consecutive birdies to set up a playoff.

After a terrible tee shot on the third playoff hole, Watson put himself into Masters lore.

From deep in the woods, Watson hit a cut shot around the tree line to land the ball within 15 feet of the hole on the 18th. From there, he two-putted to the championship.

Louis Oosthuizen played excellent throughout the weekend, but just couldn't make a shot to put away Watson. His double eagle on the second hole was extremely rare and historic (only the fourth one ever at Augusta and first on the second hole), and put him ahead of the field for most of the afternoon.

Keegan Bradley, a St. John's alum, finished the tournament +2. Bradley played well at the end, shooting a 69 on Sunday.

However, it was Watson who battled right to the end and found out how he looks in green.
