| ||The season`s first major kicks off this week at Augusta National. Bubba
Watson hit a miraculous shot from the trees on the second playoff hole last
year, and that helped him defeat Louis Oosthuizen. Watson 2-putted for par on
that hole to seal the win. The victory was his first major championship and
fourth PGA Tour title. Oosthuizen, the 2010 British Open champion, had the
fourth double-eagle in Masters history earlier in the final round.
Ninety-three players are in the field for the season`s first major, including
Martin Laird, who won the Texas Open on Sunday. Darren Clarke, the 2011
British Open champion, withdrew on Monday with a hamstring injury.
