Master's Week produced some great storylines and memorable moments and Bubba gets to slide on another Green Jacket!
The future is very bright for Spieth, the Texas phenom playing in his first Masters and bidding to become its youngest champion. But the future was put on hold Sunday. At Augusta National, the past is honored and the present is rewarded -- and Bubba Watson checks off both boxes.
The 35-year-old mercurial left-hander outdueled Spieth over the final 11 holes to win his second Green Jacket in three years. His three-stroke win over Spieth and another Masters rookie, Jonas Blixt, is the widest margin of victory since Phil Mickelson's win in 2010. For a Sunday that shaped up to be fairly dramatic, the only suspense for most of the back nine seemed to be what kind of crazy shot Watson could manufacturer with his immense and unorthodox talent.
Moving forward, the suspense may very well be how many Green Jackets Watson will eventually win. It's not likely that he will be held to just two.
"This place, you know, suits him perfectly," said his good friend Rickie Fowler, who tied for fifth.
