Augusta, GA – Many Australians have made their mark upon the Masters throughout the years. Bruce Crampton in 1972, Jack Newton in 1980 and Greg Norman in 1996. All three of those guys have two things in common. They never won the green jacket and they all finished second when they played in the Masters.
That all changed on Sunday.
With a clutch putt on 18, Adam Scott took the lead in the Masters at 9 under. Angel Cabrera followed that up with a three foot birdie to force a playoff with Scott.
Each would par the first playoff hole. On the second playoff hole, Cabrera misses a long birdie putt that he tapped in for par. Scott sank an incredible birdie to become the first Australian to win the Masters at 9 under.
