2013 US Masters
The 2013 US Masters was played at the Augusta National in Georgia and was played from 11th to 14th April, with Adam Scott the winner following a dramatic play-off with Angel Cabrera.
This was the 77th edition of the Masters and Sergio Garcia and Marc Leishman shared the lead after day one with respective scores of 66 to leave them on six under par. Many peoples fancy Dustin Johnson sat one place back on -5 ahead of a group of six players who tied for fourth on four under par. Adam Scott opened his account with a three under par 69 to be tied for tenth place.
A second round of 68 propelled former runner-up Jason Day of Australia to the top of the leaderboard at the halfway stage on six under par. Veteran Fred Couples was a shot back on five under par alongside Leishman as Sergio Garcia fell right out of contention. A second round 69 moved Angel Cabrera into a tie for fourth alongside Jim Furyk and Brandt Snedeker whilst Adam Scott shot a level par round to remain on three under par, just three shots off the lead.
Cabrera shot a second consecutive 69 on day three of the tournament to move into a joint lead with Brandt Snedeker on seven under par. Adam Scott also shot a 69 to move to within a shot of the lead on six under par, whilst compatriots Jason Day and Marc Leishman were a shot back on five under. Tiger Woods had moved into contention on Friday but was adjudged to have incorrectly dropped his ball under a penalty on the 15th and was penalised a further two shots which left him four off the lead going into the final round.
As is the norm at the Masters there were plenty of moves at the top of the leaderboard on the back nine on Sunday but it was Adam Scott who looked like winning it with a 69 to leave him on nine under par. Scott had birdied the 18th for what at the time looked like a winning putt, but Angel Cabrera had other ideas and duly also birdied the last to take the match into a play-off. The pair halved the first play off hole before Scott birdied the tenth to take the title and his first Major championship win.
