It took a 2-hole playoff, but Bubba Watson is your 2012 Masters champion.

Watson shot a 4-under 68 in the final round, leaving him in a tie with Louis Oosthuizen at 10 under for the tournament.

They went to a sudden-death playoff, starting on hole 18. Both players shot a 4, sending it to the 10th hole for the win. Watson made par with a 4, but Oosthuizen could only manage a bogey 5, giving Watson the win.

This is Watson's first Major championship, and only his 3rd career win on the PGA Tour.

Congrats to Bubba Watson, the 2012 Masters champion!

I was doing yard work and running inside every half hour or so to watch.  I damn near cried right along with Bubba when he was celebrating.  As Duncan said, it couldn't have gone to a nicer guy.

That's because the guy who wrote this is kind of an idiot sometimes.

Awesome! Don't watch a lot of golf but I really really, really like Bubba Watson.With all the other PGAers hanging around to watch him shows you what type of guy he is. Green jacket couldn't have gone to a nicer guy.

I don't watch a lot of golf so take this for what it's worth but Watson's 2nd shot on the second playoff hole was the best, most clutch shot I've ever seen.
