AUGUSTA, Georgia-

For the second time in three years, Bubba Watson won the Masters Tournament Sunday. He beat out Sweden’s Jonas Blixt and fellow American Jordan Spieth by three strokes.

Jordan Spieth, 20, was in the lead heading into the 8th hole on Sunday, and was attempting to become the youngest Masters winner in over 80 years. After back-to-back bogeys, he fell behind Watson, and Watson didn’t look back from then on.

Bubba Watson finished with a winning score of 8-under 280.
