Bubba Watson, Masters 2012 Champion; Tiger Woods Congratulatory

Bubba Watson seemed to be a spectator toward Louis Oosthuizen's run toward his first ever green jacket after the South African nailed a rare double-eagle on the second hole. Oosthuizen led most of the rest of the way at -10. but back came Watson with big birdies on 13, 14, 15 and 16 to make it all up. Then Watson and Oosthuizen stayed even for most of the rest of the game, getting pars on 17 and 18 and the first playoff hole back at 18.

It looked like both of those two golfers would go on playing this way forever. Until Watson managed this spectacular shot from in-between the trees in the second playoff hole to secure his win.

Tiger Woods had an interesting take on Bubba's victory.

There does seem to be a lot of love in the golfing world for the Bubba capturing his first ever green jacket.
