For the second straight year, the Masters is headed to a playoff. It will be Adam Scott and Angel Cabrera going to extra holes after an amazing sequence on the 18th green at Augusta National.
The two were playing in consecutive groups and both went to the 18th tee in a tie at 8-under. Both, on two separate incredible shots, carded birdies to move the tournament back to No. 18 again for the first playoff hole. For Scott, it was a lengthy putt from the right side of the green, a long birdie putt that looked to clinch things and prompted a celebration with caddie Steve Williams. A gif of the putt:
But 2009 winner Cabrera did not let him off that easily, as El Pato stuck his approach shot to within five feet, setting up an easy birdie tap to force the playoff. Cabrera won his first Masters in a playoff, edging out Kenny Perry and Chad Campbell.
Scott's putt and Cabrera's approach provided an amazing finish to day that seemed to chug along slowly in the rain. They now start the playoff on No. 18, and will go to No. 10 if they cannot break it there -- the scene of Bubba Watson's incredible hook shot from the woods last year.
