When the 76th Masters Tournament ended on the second hole of a sudden-death playoff, it was a 33-year-old Floridian named Bubba Watson who triumphed, shedding tears of joy in the warm embrace of his mother on the 10th green at Augusta National Golf Club. In a tournament filled with drama, triumphant play and only the fourth double eagle in Masters history, it was the denouement of one of the most exciting Augusta tournaments in years. On May 29, relive Watson’s victory and every scintillating moment with “Highlights of the 2012 Masters Tournament,” the official commemorative DVD from A+E Networks Home Entertainment and Augusta National available on May 29.
The 2012 Masters was a surprising and volatile affair, as world number one Luke Donald and four-time winner Tiger Woods struggled to find their rhythm. However, it was Watson and South Africa’s Louis Oosthuizen who would emerge from a diverse and unpredictable leader board the final day. At 10-under-par 278, Watson ended regulation tied with Oosthuizen, who earlier in the day had recorded the only double eagle on the par-5 second hole in the Tournament’s history. At the end, the defining shot wasn’t Oosthuizen’s. Rather, it was Watson’s high, hooking — and improbable — wedge shot from 164 yards through the overhanging trees to the right of the 10th fairway that safely finished 15 feet from the hole. Two putts later, Watson was the 2012 Masters champion.
