The 76th Masters at Augusta National Golf Club is now history and historic.  Bubba Watson, the 33 year old University of Georgia grad, the newest owner of a green jacket, did it by virtue of a 2 hole playoff win against South African Louis Oosthuizen.  It was Oosthuizen who made Masters history however, with an albatross.  It’s the rarest shot in golf.  An albatross is a double eagle or 3 under par on ONE hole.  It happened yesterday on the par 5 2nd at Augusta National.  His 253 yard 2nd shot landed on the green and rolled some 90 feet into the cup for a 2.  Tiger Woods could never get on track last week and finished in 41st place, 15 shots behind the leaders.
