Watson wins second Masters
Augusta, Ga. (AP) -- Bubba Watson has earned his second green jacket in three years by taking advantage of a two-hole turnaround at the Masters on Sunday.
Watson was three shots behind third-round co-leader Jordan Spieth early in the final round and trailed by two before things changed during the eighth and ninth holes.
That's where Spieth carded consecutive bogeys while Watson birdied each hole, giving the 2012 champion a lead he wouldn't relinquish.
Watson closed with a 3-under 69 for an 8-under total, three strokes ahead of Jonas Blixt and Spieth. Blixt was the only player to shoot below par in each round at Augusta National.
Miguel Angel Jimenez finished fourth, four shots off the pace and two ahead of Rickie Fowler and Matt Kuchar.
