Golf news: Bubba Watson is the new Masters champion.

Golf news: Bubba Watson has won The Masters. Bubba Watson placed the coveted green jacket over his white golf apparel after triumphing in The Masters.

The American overcame South African Louis Oosthuizen to become the eighth consecutive first-time major victor at the prestigious tournament.

Sporting a white golf shirt and trousers of the same hue, the 33-year-old defeated his opponent on the second extra hole and described the moment as a dream come true.

He stated: "This is what we strive for, to put on the green jacket, to win golf tournaments."

Despite hitting four successive birdies to reach ten under, Watson made things difficult for himself by missing a final one-under on the last pin - a mistake that meant he had to overcome Oosthuizen in a playoff.

After both players parred the first hole, Watson - who is now ranked fourth in the world - produced a sublime hook from in the trees to give him the perfect opportunity to taste Masters victory for the first time.
