Adam Scott has just done what the Australians have prayed for since the early 1990’s, he won the Masters and he did it by making a birdie on the 72 hole to get to 9 under par. It wasn’t finished there. he was forced into a play off when Angel Cabrera hit the shot of his life to make a birdie on the 72nd hole himself.

It all came down to 2 heroic shots on the last hole, and 2 play-off holes. Scott won the Masters by making a birdie on the second play-off hole to beat Cabrera.  Both men really wanted this 2013 Masters. Both men had an opportunity to win the Masters in regulation.

Scott, made a great shot on the 16th hole, he was left with a putt that many thought hew would make. At the time he was at 8 under par and so was Cabrera. Scott missed the putt on 16 after making a birdie on the par 5 15th.

Scott, left his second shot at the 17th a bit short and couldn’t make a birdie on that hole either. He had to get one on the 18th hole to give himself a shot at being the first Australian to win the Masters. Scott hit his second shot on the 72nd hole and he left it just a bit out to the right.

Scott had what appeared to be a 20-22 footer left for birdie. he hit a good-looking putt and it just caught eh hole on the low side. Scott made the putt to get to 9 under. As he was signing his score card, he heard the roar of the crowd and when he looked up at the monitor in the scoring tent, he saw how close Cabrera hit his second shot to the pin on the 18th hole.

Cabrera made the putt and forced a play off between Scott and himself. Both players headed back to the 18th tee in the pouring rain and both men would par 18 to force  the second hole of sudden death.

Adam Scott would make a birdie on the 2nd play-off hole to beat Angle Cabrera. He did it folks, he went where no Australian has ever gone before. he made the trip into the Green Jacket Fitting Room, to pick out his green jacket. Just like that, Australia won the Masters.

Congratulations to Adam Scott for finally bring the Masters down under….
