The continent of Australia didn’t sleep all weekend as it looked like Jason Day was going to become the first Aussie to win the green jacket. He entered Sunday as the leader and it was only 5:00 a.m. in his home country when the fireworks began, but the Land Down Under got one heck of a wakeup call when Day eagled the second hole to bring the excitement level in Australia to a whole new level.
Then Day began to fade with four bogies, including a pair on his final two holes, but his home country got received got its second wind when fellow Australian Adam Scott birdied three of his last six holes to propel himself to a fantastic final round (three-under 69) that resulted in a one-on-one playoff with Angel Cabrera for the Masters title.
Cabrera gave Scott a run for his money with his incredibly powerful drives and irons that kept the two friends deadlocked after one playoff hole. Then Cabrera’s birdie putt on the second playoff hole was just a hair off and Scott made him pay. There was no Tiger Woods and no Rory McIlroy, but it was still one of the best finishes in Masters history, and that’s saying something.
