We've chronicled why we'd love to see Miguel Angel Jimenez win the Masters. Well, the "most interesting golfer in the world" hasn't been able to get anything going on Sunday at the Masters, falling back to 1-under.

Fowler had a ridiculously long and winding putt on the back of the ninth green just for par, and it somehow came around the bend and dropped in the cup.
