Come On Aussie! The 2013 Masters was a roller coaster from Day 1. But after four exciting days, Adam Scott beat Angel Cabrera in a shootout to win the green jacket. Not only is he the first Australian to win the Masters, but he is also the first to win with a long putter! Congrats to Mr. Scott and to Mr. Cabrera – two classy golfers and deserving champs. Of course, the winner wasn’t the only story to emerge from the azaleas. Going into Thursday, Tiger Woods was expected to win with 3-1 odds. However, following a  two-stroke penalty on No. 15, Woods just couldn’t get it together. After missed putts and one ball in the water, he ended tying for 4th. He wasn’t the only big name to disappoint. American and European stars all had trouble. Last year’s champion, Bubba Watson, even carded a 10 on No. 12. Said Watson: “If you’re not going to win you have to get in the record book somehow.” The internet has been working overtime detailing every aspect of the tournament; luckily, Scratch here has rounded up the best of the best! Here’s the 2013 Masters Blog Roundup!
