“It was a great day out there. We had a lot of fun. Bubba just hit an unbelievable shot there on 10. I didn’t play badly. Bubba earned it,” Oosthuizen reportedly said.

“I never got this far in my dreams, so it’s not a dream come true. It’s a blessing. To go home to my new son will be a lot of fun,” Watson, who reportedly adopted a one-month old boy, Caleb, two weeks ago, was quoted as saying.

“Golf isn’t everything for me. If I would have lost today, it wouldn’t have been the end of the world. To win is awesome, but I’ll go back to real life next week,” Watson added.

Watson reportedly won for the fourth time in his career and now ranks No. 4 in the world, making him the highest-ranked American in golf. He was said to be the fifth left-hander to win the Masters in the last 10 years.
