Scott Wins First Masters for Australia
It was “Aussie, Aussie, Aussie…oy, oy, oy!” at Augusta National in the 2013 Masters. Australia’s Adam Scott became the first Australian to win the Masters when he defeated Angel Cabrera on the second playoff hole.
Scott began the day at -5 and steadily climbed the leaderboard as others struggled through the increasing raindrops at ANGC. He dropped to -9 with a birdie on 18 and headed to the clubhouse as the leader, only to have Cabrera tie him with a birdie in the final group of the afternoon.
Both men parred the first playoff hole, a repeat of 18, but it was Scott who birdied the second playoff hole, the 10th, while Cabrera could only manage par.
It’s the first major victory for Scott.
