The 2013 Masters Tournament was the 77th edition of the Masters Tournament and the first of golf's four major championships to be held in 2013. It was held from April 11–14 at Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Georgia.[3] Adam Scott won the tournament on the second hole of a sudden death playoff against Ángel Cabrera. It was Scott's first major championship and the first time an Australian won the Masters. Scott's win received some controversy as he won using a belly putter, being the first Master's winner to do so.[4][5]

Field[edit]

The Masters has the smallest field of the four major championships. Officially, the Masters remains an invitation event, but there is a set of qualifying criteria that determines who is included in the field.[6] Each player is classified according to the first category by which he qualified, with other categories in which he qualified shown in parentheses.

Golfers who qualify based solely on their performance in amateur tournaments (categories 6–10) must remain amateurs on the starting day of the tournament to be eligible to play.

Four players were appearing in their first major: Steven Fox, Michael Weaver, Guan Tianlang and T. J. Vogel. Thirteen others were appearing in their first Masters: Alan Dunbar, John Peterson, David Lynn, John Huh, Scott Piercy, Russell Henley, Ted Potter, Jr., George Coetzee, Nicolas Colsaerts, Jamie Donaldson, Branden Grace, Thorbjørn Olesen, Thaworn Wiratchant.[7]

For 2013 the minimum number of players making the cut was increased from 44 to 50. In addition, all players within 10 shots of the leader also make the cut.[12] 61 players made the cut, all those within 10 shots of the leader. 14-year old Guan Tianlang, playing in his first Masters, was the only amateur player to make the cut, despite being penalized a stroke for slow play.

Third round[edit]

Saturday, April 13, 2013

After his second round, Tiger Woods signed for a score of 71 (−1), which included a bogey at the par-5 15th hole. Woods' third shot hit the pin and rebounded into a water hazard. He took a penalty stroke and dropped from the same position as he had played his third shot. Woods later admitted that he had actually dropped the ball two yards further from the pin than the original position, in contravention of the rules. This could have meant disqualification, but after further review, Woods was assessed a two-stroke penalty for the illegal drop. He therefore scored a triple-bogey 8 at the 15th and had a second round score of 73 (+1).[13][14]

Final round[edit]

Sunday, April 14, 2013

In the final round, played in a cold and steady rain, third round co-leader Brandt Snedeker fell out of contention with a 75. Jason Day had the lead with three holes to go but bogeyed the 16th and 17th holes to finish in third place at 281 (−7). Adam Scott and Ángel Cabrera both birdied the 72nd hole to finish tied for the lead at 279 (−9).[15] Scott rolled in a 25-footer (8 m), while Cabrera followed up with an approach shot to 3 feet.

The sudden-death playoff began at the 18th hole, where Scott and Cabrera both scrambled for par from just short of the green, with Cabrera's chip nearly holing out. At the next hole, #10, both were in the fairway then on the green in regulation. Cabrera's lengthy putt just missed and he tapped in for par. With the opportunity to win and in fading light, Scott sank his 15-foot (4.6 m) birdie putt for the victory.[16][17] It was Scott's first major championship and the only time an Australian has won the Masters,[18] after producing nine runners-up in the tournament.[19] Following his victory, he paid tribute to Greg Norman: "It was one guy who inspired a nation of golfers, and that is Greg Norman".[20] Earlier that day, Norman said that if an Australian won the title "it would mean everything to [him]".[21][22]
