Over the course of his career as a professional golfer, Bubba Watson has won twice at The Masters, the sport’s pinnacle event. His first victory came in 2012. Peter Hanson led the field entering the final round of play while Watson sat in third place at six under par. After a strong back nine, Watson found himself tied for first with one of his playing partners, Louis Oosthuizen. The two tied on the first sudden-death hole before Watson managed to edge out a close victory on the downhill 10th, securing his first major Masters win and the world No. 4 ranking.
Bubba Watson earned his second Masters trophy in similarly dramatic fashion. At the 2014 tournament, he began the final round of play tied for first with his playing partner for the day, Jordan Spieth. Spieth took an early two-stroke lead until Watson seized momentum on the fifth hole, turning the deficit into a two-stroke advantage in just two holes. Watson ended the tournament eight under par, winning his second Masters by three strokes.
