Masters 2012: Louis Oosthuizen And Bubba Watson Set For Playoff

Clutch putting down the stretch has helped setup a thrilling finish at the 2012 Masters, as Louis Oosthuizen and Bubba Watson will square off in the first playoff since 2009, when Angel Cabrera won the Green Jacket. The two golfers were paired together on Sunday and both finished the 72 holes at -10.

Despite a couple hints of being able to put together a run, Phil Mickelson was never able to overcome a triple bogey on the fourth hole. Although he remained contention, Mickelson ended up tied with Lee Westwood, Peter Hanson and Matt Kuchar at -8.

If Oosthuizen is able to emerge victorious, it will be his second major, as he also won the 2010 Open Championship. Watson has never won a major, but did advance to a playoff in the 2010 PGA Championship, where he lost to Martin Kaymer.
