When the 76th Masters Tournament ended on the second hole of a sudden-death playoff, it was a 33-year-old Floridian named Bubba Watson who triumphed, shedding tears of joy in the warm embrace of his mother on the 10th green at Augusta National Golf Club.
Heading into the weekend, Fred Couples was the surprise leader as world number one Luke Donald and four-time winner Tiger Woods struggled to find their rhythm. On 'moving day' it was three-time winner Phil Mickelson who lit up Augusta National with a sensational second nine that left him one shot behind Tournament leader Peter Hanson going into Sunday.
But it was Watson and South Africa's Louis Oosthuizen who would emerge from a diverse and volatile leader board the final day. At 10-under-par 278, Watson ended regulation tied with Oosthuizen, who earlier in the day had recorded the only double eagle on the par-5 second hole in the Tournament's history. At the end, the defining shot wasn't Oosthuizen's. Rather, it was Watson's high, hooking - and improbable - wedge shot from 164 yards through the overhanging trees to the right of the 10th fairway that safely finished 15 feet from the hole. Two putts later, Watson was the 2012 Masters champion.
Said Watson after winning the Green Jacket: "I never made it this far in my dreams." This finale was a moment to enjoy for sports fans around the world and this DVD provides the official story of how the Masters was decided in such dramatic fashion.
