He made par, and Oosthuizen bogeyed, handing Watson his first Major title. The Florida native made it two wins in three years at Augusta when he won the 2014 Masters for his second Major title. Added his first World Golf Championships title at the WGC-HSBC Champions in Shanghai, where a spectacular bunker shot at the final hole saw the American beat a world-class field to the prestigious title.

Full name is Gerry Lester Watson but was nicknamed Bubba by his father, a professional football player.
