Adam Scott the first Aussie to win the Masters

Adam Scott is the first Australian player to win the Masters.

History has been made, as golfer Adam Scott is now the first Australian player to have won arguably the biggest tournament in golf, the Masters.

Tigers Woods was actually favoured to win the tournament, but in end it was his former caddie Steve Williams, now paired with Scott, who took the victory.

The tournament all came down to a playoff putt in the pouring rain, with Scott using his long putter to take the Green Jacket.

The 32-year-old was tied with Angel Cabrera right down to the very end.

“It’s amazing that it’s my destiny to be the first Aussie to win, just incredible,” Scott said. “This is one notch in the belt that we’ve never got, and amazing that it’s come down to me today.”

Tournament favourite Woods ended up tied for fourth, at 5-under par, after dealing with a two-stroke penalty stemming from the questionable drop he took on Friday.

Some analysts believe if Woods hadn’t taken that penalty there is a chance we could be looking at a different winner, but that, of course, is only speculation.
