Masters Week: Adam Scott Wins The 2013 Masters
As an Australian, there’s always been a love hate relationship with the Masters.
You can’t wait to get up early and watch the tournament but somewhere in the back of your mind all the near misses come flooding back…over and over again. However that all changed in 2013 when Adam Scott broke a decades long hoodoo to claim the green jacket for the very first time.
Of course it wasn’t going to be easy but we did have three solid chances in the form of Adam Scott, Jason Day and Marc Leishman.
Day had the title in his sights but faltered late in his round, Leishman couldn’t get his round started and came back to where he started to sit alongside Tiger Woods in outright 4th.
That left Scott, who performed superbly under pressure. The Queenslander responded to everything that Ángel Cabrera could throw at him.

Ultimately it was all decided at the second playoff hole in fading light with a 15-foot putt that sealed Scott’s place in the annals of golfing history.
The next year would see multiple victories and in May 2014 a spot as World No.1, which would last almost three months.
Enjoy this look back at the historic final round of the 2013 Masters…all 322 glorious minutes of it.
