Day 14: Is There Anything Better Than Sudden Death at the Masters?

Always a bridesmaid, never a bride... and finally, the Aussies make it to the altar. Adam Scott becomes the first Australian to don the Green Jacket after beating former Masters champion, Argentinian Angel Cabrera, in a sudden death playoff.

I'm a big fan of close golf tournaments. Nothing ups the yawn factor faster than a player running away from the pack. My whole family was riveted to the TV screen, pulling for the kid from Down Under to put it away. We groaned and cheered and cringed and then erupted when Adam sunk his final winning putt.

Tiger Woods, the favorite going into Augusta National, made a late surge on Sunday to get to -5, but it was a classic case of too little, too late and he finished tied for 4th. Woods never quite got back on track after he was given a two-stroke penalty after Friday's round for a bad spot.

In case you missed it:

Congratulations, Adam!
