Sometimes, winning a golf tournament or putting on a green jacket can change a guy's life.

Bubba Watson insists he's not that guy.

Maybe that explains his ability to pull off the impossible when the pressure was boiling over at the Masters on Sunday.

Perched atop pine needles far right of the fairway with a better view of a TV tower than the green, the left-hander hooked his way out of trouble and into history. His 155-yard curveball landed on the green and beat South Africa's Louis Oosthuizen on the second hole of a playoff and turned Oosthuizen's double eagle earlier in the round into the second-best shot on a day filled with magic at Augusta National.

While Oosthuizen failed to get up and down from in front of the green, Watson wrapped it up with a no-stress two-putt on the 10th green to clinch his first major, then sobbed hard on his mother's shoulder.

Here's a look at Sunday's golf action in photos.
