Bubba Watson wins the Masters

By Alejandro Freixes, CCNN Head Writer

At the Masters Tournament, which is one of the four major championships in professional golf, Bubba Watson’s 3-under par 69 on Sunday rocked Jordan Spieth, as the 20-year-old favorite was beaten by the now two-time champion. Even though Watson is 15 years older than Spieth, his determination and quirky left-handed play overcame the hotshot at the Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Georgia. He made two straight birdies, Spieth took back-to-back bogeys, and suddenly Watson was up by two strokes at the turn. With an 8-under 280 total, Watson earned a three-shot win, ruining Spieth’s chances of becoming the youngest Masters champion ever.
