Bubba Watson, Louis Oosthuizen Head To Second Playoff Hole At 2012 Masters

Bubba Watson and Louis Oosthuizen couldn't decide the 2012 The Masters over their 72 holes of regulation. And on the first playoff hole, the 19th the two played together on Sunday, both missed putts by inches that pushed the tournament to its 74th hole of play.

Oosthuizen hit a fine tee shot and a very good approach, but remained away with just shy of 15 feet for birdie. He pushed his putt just right, leaving the door open for crowd favorite Watson, a former University of Georgia golfer.

But Watson, never a sure thing with the putter, rolled his 10-foot birdie to win just high after a great tee shot and an excellent approach, and had to settle for a par that did nothing but extend the playoff between the two golfers.

Watson and Oosthuizen will head to No. 10 for the second playoff hole.
