Masters Sunday recap: Adam Scott outlasts Angel Cabrera to win his first ever major championship

Adam Scott became the first Australian to ever win the Masters with two incredibly clutch putts on the final hole of regulation and the second playoff hole. Scott battled all day long, and when it came down to it, he rolled in two putts that seemed destined to go in. This is Scott's first ever major win and comes just nine months after he had the lead on Sunday at the British Open and let it slip away.

• We knew Tiger Woods would have to get off to a hot start if he wanted to make a run at a fifth green jacket, but his front nine 37 was just about too much to overcome. Woods made four birdies over his last 10 holes, but his round of 2-under 70 means Tiger has now gone two full years without a sub-70 round at Augusta National.

Kevin Na wasn't playing particularly horrible on Sunday at the Masters until he got to the 12th tee. The famed par-3 is a tricky one, and Na dumped three balls in the water before finally getting one on land, eventually making a 10 there. That score helped Na post a final round 81 and drop 21 spots on the leaderboard.

• Defending champion Bubba Watson followed up what Na did on the 12th with his own 10. Watson finished Sunday with a 77 thanks to that disaster on the short par-3.

• Brandt Snedeker looked like the guy that was going to win this thing before the final round started, and after a birdie on the first it really looked like he was locked in. It appeared like the moment got to him, and his final round 75 dropped him into a T-6.

"If you’re not going to win you have to get in the record books somehow – double digits on a par 3." -- Bubba Watson, on his 10 he made on the par-3 12th hole

Par-4 18th, Holly

Is this really a question? The final hole at Augusta National was the site of not just the best putt of the week but the best shot, and it gave us some of the highest drama of any Masters ever.
