Bubba Watson Dons Green Jacket For Second Time At Masters

Bubba Watson hits his tee shot on the seventh hole during the final round of the 2014 Masters Tournament at Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Ga., on Sunday.

After a blustery final round at Augusta National, Bubba Watson won the 78th Masters golf championship on Sunday.

The win earned Watson another green jacket, his second in three years, after shooting a final round of 3-under-par 69. He finished the tournament at 8-under-par 280.

Watson was able to pull ahead and hold off a close game with 20-year-old Jordan Spieth, who led the match by two strokes heading into the eighth hole. After two straight birdies from Watson and back-to-back bogeys from Spieth, the match shifted. Spieth ended the tournament tied for second, three strokes back at 5-under par, with Jonas Blixt.
