2012 Masters Results: Bubba Watson Victorious In Playoff Over Louis Oosthuizen

It took an incredible shot from the gallery that somehow found its way onto the green, but Bubba Watson has won his first Masters Watson and Louis Oosthuizen were dead even at 10-under par through 72 holes, forcing a sudden death playoff.

It was there, on the second playoff hole, that Watson made a shot that will go down as one of the greatest in Masters' history:

Bubba Watson found himself in some serious trouble off the tee at No. 10, slicing his drive way right, over the gallery and into the woods. It was nowhere near the fairway, leaving him little angle into the 10th green. After Louis Oosthuizen, who got a lucky bounce to have a shot at the green with his second, left his approach short of the green, Watson stepped up, forced to hit a huge hook to even find the green.

Watson's shot allowed him to two-putt for par, letting him take home the green jacket.
