Bubba Watson has won the 2012 Masters golf tournament. This is Watson’s first win in a Major golf tournament and only his fourth on the PGA Tour. Watson won in a dramatic play-0ff against South Africa’s Louis Oosthuizen.
Both men hit errant drives at the second play-off hole. However, Watson’s ball landed in a tougher spot to play from than Oosthuizen’s though Watson was around 50-60 yards closer to the hole. Watson preceded to hit in incredible golf shot by hitting the ball out of the woods and curving it to land on the green. The shot was incredible!
It is pretty cool for a Christian to win the Masters golf tournament on Easter Sunday. I am sure it is very encouraging for that Christian to win his first Major golf tournament on any day, but he will probably not forget that he won on Easter Sunday.
More encouraging though are the tweets that Bubba Watson sent out this weekend.

Finally, I want to thank Watson for not Tebowing and close with the following tweet.
