Bubba Watson wins US Masters


American Bubba Watson has won the 2014 US Masters.

American Bubba Watson has captured his second US Masters title in three years with victory at Augusta National on Sunday.

The 2012 champion carded a final round of 69 to finish at eight-under - three shots clear of debutants Jordan Spieth and Jonas Blixt.

Spieth had a two-stroke lead heading to the eighth hole, but Watson turned things around with back-to-back birdies while Spieth slipped with two straight bogeys.

The 35-year-old stretched his lead at the 13th with a booming drive to set up a two-putt birdie, taking his score to eight-under.
