Adam Scott In The Bag: The Masters Winning Clubs

Published:

Adam Scott broke the Australian curse at The Masters by defeating 2009 winner Angel Cabrera in a nail-biting playoff.

The 32-year-old sunk a 15-foot putt on the 10th – the pair’s second sudden death hole – to clinch his maiden major title and deprive the big hitting Argentinian. 

Fellow Australian Jason Day finished two shots back at seven-under-par, after three-putting 16 and finding the sand on 17, while Tiger Woods and another Australian Marc Leishman tied for fourth at five-under.

“It fell my way today, there was some luck there but it’s incredible to be in this position. I’m honoured,” said Scott, who squandered a four-shot lead with four to play to lose the Open to Ernie Els last year.

“This is the one thing in golf we hadn’t been able to achieve,” he added. “It’s amazing that it’s my destiny to be the first Australian to win.”

The duo made the playoff after Scott rolled in a stunning long birdie putt to briefly snatch a one-shot lead, before Cabrera – who was waiting back down the fairway in the final group – stuck his approach to a few feet to make his birdie.

Both could only find the fringe at the first extra hole and neither could chip-in.

Playing back down the 10th both players found the heart of the green,  but Cabrera, who won a playoff against Chad Campbell and Kenny Perry on the 10th in 2009, left his putt on the lip, leaving Scott the chance to take glory.

“That’s how golf is. I came back and I had that chip on 18, I could have won it,” said Cabrera. “But Adam’s a good winner. I would have been happier if I had won but he’s a great player, I get along with him, we’ve played together in the President’s Cup and I’m happy for him.”

Cabrera held a two-shot lead thru nine but found the water on the par-5 13th from the pine straws to open the door for Scott and Day, who who was two in front with three to play before his late bogeys.

Woods struggled with his putter and carded a two-under 70 for a seventh top-four in his last eight Masters following his last win in 2005. “I played well, unfortunately I just didn’t make enough putts and also missed a few shots here and there,” said the world number one. I certainly had an opportunity. If I shot 65 I thought I could win it outright, and it looked like that might be the number..”

Overnight co-leader Brandt Snedeker slumped to a 75 for four-under total, while Danish debutant Thorbjorn Olesen headed the European challenge with a closing 68. 

England’s Lee Westwood once again led the British challenge and got to four-under at the seventh before his putter once again failed to get him over the line. “Any time you finish top 10 in a major you’ve got to be pleased with that,” said Westwood. “There’s not too many negatives to take away.”

World number two Rory McIlroy improved on his third round by 10 shots with a 69 to end on two-over-par, while Luke Donald and Justin Rose also ended two-over.

14-year-old Chinese amateur Guan Tianlang finished with a 75 for 12-over on his remarkable debut that saw him become the youngest Masters competitor and youngest player to make the cut at a major, and winner of the low amateur prize.

But it will be Scott who takes the headlines. He was using a new Titleist 913D3 driver for the first time in competition, as well as the Titleist Pro V1 ball. He also played a Scotty Cameron Futura X prototype, which features a 52-inch shaft and a high-MOI head with eight-way adjustable weights.
