adam scott masters 2013 win 2013 Masters playoff sees Adam Scott defeat Angel Cabrera for his first green jacketAt the 2013 Masters golf tournament, Adam Scott, 32, won a two-hole sudden-death playoff against Angel Cabrera, 43, for his first PGA major win.

Scott and Cabrera finished the regulation final round tied at 9-under par, which forced a sudden-death playoff. The two golfers immediately replayed the 18th hole, which they both made par on to extend the playoff.

The next hole in a Masters playoff is the 10th — the playoff golfers alternate the 18th and the 10th until someone emerges victorious. On the 10th hole in the playoff, both golfers were on the green on two shots. Cabrera putted first, missing the hole by about an inch for birdie, then tapped in for par.
Scott then sank his birdie putt opportunity for the victory. He had previously finished tied for 2nd at the Masters in 2011 and 2nd at the 2012 British Open. Just five months earlier, Scott won his native Australian Masters, earning the gold jacket from that tournament. Now he has a green one to go with — and he’s the first Aussie to win the Masters.
