Bubba Watson Wins 2014 Masters
Bubba Watson shot a 3-under 69 on Sunday to win his second Masters title in three years at Augusta National in Georgia. The 2012 champ, Watson shot 8-under 280 over four rounds, beating Jonas Blixt and Jordan Spieth by three shots.
Watson scored back-to-back birdies on the eighth and ninth holes to seize the lead from Spieth. Prior to his rally, Watson was two shots behind the 20 year-old, who had chipped in a miraculous birdie from the bunker on the fourth hole earlier on Sunday. The two golfers opened the day tied for the lead after three rounds.
Miguel Angel Jimenez finished fourth with a 4-under 284 and Rickie Fowler and Matt Kuchar tied for fifth, six shots from the lead.
Watson’s second victory at Augusta made him the 17th man to win two green jackets, the traditional attire given to the tournament’s champion each year.
