Bubba Watson wins 2012 Masters by beating Louis Oosthuizen in a playoff with a ridiculous second shot to set up a birdie on the second playoff hole.
Watson was unable to see the green from where he was standing but curled a shot from out of the pine straw and onto the 10th green to set up his first major victory.
Watson and Oosthuizen finished regulation at 10 under 278.
"He hit an unbelievable shot there," Oosthuizen said. "I played well. This is not one I felt like I played badly. Great stuff to him. He deserves it."
