How he won: Scott made a 20-footer for birdie on the final hole of regulation, only for Cabrera to tie with a 3-footer of his own. Scott won with a 12-footer for birdie on the 10th hole, the second of the playoff.

Tiger?: Tiger Woods shot a 2-under 70 to finish in a tie for fourth place with Marc Leishman, four shots back.

Aussie, Aussie, Aussie: Scott became the first Australian to win the Masters. Countryman Greg Norman famously imploded in the final round in 1996, losing to Nick Faldo after holding a six-shot lead.

Shot of the day: Scott's shot to the 13th hole landed on the green but rolled back, somehow stopping just before going into the water. He got it up and down for a crucial birdie.

Key stat: Players using long putters have now won four of the last six major championships, one of each.

Noteworthy: Three of the top five finishers were Australians. Scott won, with Jason Day third, two strokes back, and Leishman four shots back.

Quoteworthy: "It's amazing that it's my destiny to be the first Aussie to win, just incredible." -- Adam Scott
