Adam Scott became the first Australian to win The Masters with a birdie on the second playoff hole late Sunday. Scott, 32, shot a 3-under 69 in the final round, including a clutch 20-foot birdie putt amdist the rain drops on the 18th hole to force the playoff with Argentina's Angel Cabrera, who matched Scott with his own impressive birdie on the final hole to tie him at 9-under 279. Both made par on the first playoff hole, No. 18, before moving on to No. 10 where Scott had caddie Steve Williams read the 12-foot putt that forever changed his life. The Masters had been the only major no Australian had ever won.
