(Associated Press) Adam Scott celebrates after making a birdie putt on the 18th green during the final round of the Masters Sunday in Augusta, Ga. The birdie gave Scott a brief lead as Angel Cabrera would later make a spectacular approach shot on 18 that would lead to a birdie of his own to force a sudden-death playoff with Scott. Pumping his fist in the background is Scott’s fellow Australia countryman Marc Leishman.

With the two biggest putts of his career, Scott holed a 20-footer for birdie on the 18th hole of regulation that put him into a playoff with Angel Cabrera, and then won his first major championship Sunday with a 12-footer for birdie on the second extra hole.
