Bubba Watson has done it again. Entering the final round of play at Augusta National on Sunday, Watson shared the lead with 20-year-old phenom Jordan Spieth. Both golfers entered the day at 5-under.
After relinquishing the lead for a few holes to Spieth, Watson turned to the Back 9 and never looked back. Come Sunday afternoon, the Bagdad, Florida native and Georgie Bulldog put on the second green jacket of his career, further cementing himself in golf’s history books.
After Watson notched a total score of 8-under for the tournament, Twitter reacted by congratulating him on his second Masters.
General Lee speaking, Bubba Watson’s game is made for Augusta. #Congrats

Congrats to Bubba Waston on a second Masters win. And congrats to the Kid, who’ll surely have one of these walks of his own. #Masters2014

Bubba joins Tiger, Phil, Palmer, Nicklaus, Faldo, Snead, Hogan and Horton as the only golfers to win two Masters in three years.
