Bubba Watson shot a 69 in the final round at Augusta National on Sunday to secure his second Masters victory. This is Watson’s second Masters win in the past three years and only eight golfers have ever done that before, including Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson and Jack Nicklaus. Watson said, “To win twice, to be with those great names. … A small-town guy named Bubba now has two green jackets. It’s pretty wild.” Things were a little different this time around. In 2012, Watson had to play through a sudden death playoff to win the Masters; this time he walked up to the 18 hole tee box with victory in hand. “This one was a lot better for me and my nerves and my family,” Watson admitted.
