Following an exciting finish on the course, Adam Scott received his green jacket for winning the Masters Sunday night.
Scott, who sunk a birdie putt on the second playoff hole to win, received his green jacket from 2012 Masters champion Bubba Watson. He became the first Australian-born player to win the Masters, breaking a long-standing curse. His Masters victory was also the first major tournament victory of his career, removing his name from the list of best players to not win a major.
"I don't know how I digest it all at the moment," Scott said in Butler Cabin. "But it's incredible."
During the green jacket presentation last year, Watson left Masters chairman Billy Payne hangning on a handshake. No such thing happened this year as Payne was the first to receive a handshake after Scott put on the newest addition to his closet.
In addition to Scott receiving his green jacket, 14-year-old Tianlang Guan was also honored for finishing as the low amateur. Guan was the only amateur to make the cut and he eventually finished in 58th place at 12-over.
