Bubba Watson wins 2014 Masters
Bubba Watson has won the 2014 Masters Tournament at Augusta National Golf Club.
Watson was tied for the lead heading into the Sunday round with Jordan Spieth, but Watson took the lead at the turn, and alternated between a two and three shot lead through the back nine.
Watson ran into trouble at 15, but saved par. Spieth couldn't take advantage, settling for par as well.
Watson becomes the ninth golfer in Masters history to win a second green jacket. He joins Horton Smith, Byron Nelson, Ben Hogan, Tom Watson, Seve Ballesteros, Bernhard Langer, Ben Crenshaw and José María Olazábal.
