Bubba Watson Wins Second Masters Title

Adam Scott, Bubba Watson

American golfer Bubba Watson won his second Masters title Sunday at the Augusta National Golf Club, shooting a final round 69 to finish at 8-under-par 280..

Watson, 35, won by three shots over fellow American Jordan Spieth and Jonas Blixt of Sweden.

Watson, who also won the tournament in 2012, is only the 17th player to have a repeat victory at the Masters. “After giving it away last year, I wanted it back,” Watson said of reclaiming the green jacket bestowed upon each year’s winner. “I told [last year's champion Adam Scott] we could just swap it back and forth every year.”

The victory also means that Watson is now ranked the No. 4 player in the world.
