Well Bubba Watson beat Louis Oosthuizen by a stroke on the second playoff hole to win the 2012 Masters...

Trapped among the trees 155 yards from the hole and unable to see the green, Watson hit a huge hook Sunday and landed the ball safely on the 10th green. Watson two-putted for par, which was good enough when Oosthuizen bogeyed the hole. That gave Watson his first major victory.
