AUGUSTA, GA (AP) – A glance at Sunday’s final round of the Masters at the 7,435-yard, par-72 Augusta National Golf Club.

Winner: Adam Scott, who beat former champion Angel Cabrera on the second hole of a playoff.

How he won: Scott made a 20-footer for birdie on the final hole of regulation, only for Cabrera to tie with a 3-footer of his own. Scott won with a 12-footer for birdie on the 10th hole, the second of the playoff.

Tiger?: Tiger Woods shot a 2-under 70 to finish in a tie for fourth place with Marc Leishman, four shots back.

Aussie, Aussie, Aussie: Scott became the first Australian to win the Masters. Countryman Greg Norman famously imploded in the final round in 1996, losing to Nick Faldo after holding a six-shot lead.

Shot of the day: Scott’s shot to the 13th hole landed on the green but rolled back, somehow stopping just before going into the water. He got it up and down for a crucial birdie.

Key stat: Players using long putters have now won four of the last six major championships, one of each.

Noteworthy: Three of the top five finishers were Australians. Scott won, with Jason Day third, two strokes back, and Leishman four shots back.

Quoteworthy: “It’s amazing that it’s my destiny to be the first Aussie to win, just incredible.” – Adam Scott

AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) – Adam Scott has become the first Australian to win the Masters, beating Angel Cabrera on the second hole of a playoff on a rainy day at Augusta National.

The Masters went to a sudden-death playoff for the second year in a row when Scott and Cabrera made matching birdies on the 72nd hole Sunday.

They both made par on the first extra hole, No. 18, before Scott rolled in a 12-footer for birdie to win it.

Scott, playing in the next-to-last group, made a 20-foot putt and celebrated with caddie Steve Williams as if it were over. Cabrera, in the final group, watched from the fairway knowing he had to hit a brilliant shot. He did.

Cabrera’s ball pulled up 3 feet from the cup for an easy birdie that sent the two players to the playoff tied at 9-under 279.

PANTHERSVILLE, GA (UNCW) – A solo home run by freshman Jordan Brown in the bottom of the fourth proved to be the difference as Georgia State edged UNCW, 1-0, in the finale of a three-game Colonial Athletic Association series Sunday at the Bob Heck Softball Complex.
The Panthers improved to 27-15 overall and 7-4 in league play as they captured the series with the one-run victory. The Seahawks, meanwhile, moved to 13-24 and 2-9 as they suffered their third one-run setback in league play. UNCW returns to action Tuesday as it hosts state foe UNCG in a 5 p.m. contest at Boseman Field.
Brown’s solo shot highlighted a 3-for-3 day at the plate for the McDonough, Ga., product as she tallied three of the Panthers’ five base hits in the contest. Sophomores Callie Alford and Lauren Coleman accounted for GSU’s other two base hits. Junior pitcher Katyln Medlam scattered eight hits and one walk in seven innings in the circle for the Panthers to improve to 15-6 on the season.
Senior Lauryn Buckworth was 3-for-3 to lead a Seahawks lineup that recorded eight hits but was unable to capitalize on those opportunities as they left seven runners on base. Freshman Kayla Pine took the loss for the Seahawks as she moved to 4-2 on the season. Pine pitched three innings in relief and allowed one run on three hits and one walk.
Brown’s solo shot, her second of the season, came on a 1-0 count after the Panthers had the first two batters of the inning retired on fly balls to the outfield.
UNCW had its best chance to get on the board in the fifth as junior Morgan McCann drew a walk and attempted to score one batter later on a base hit by Buckworth, but was thrown out at the plate.
The Seahawks were able to get the tying run on base in the top of the seventh when junior Camry Wagner reached on a two-out error, but Medlam retired the next batter she faced to end the contest.


WILMINGTON, NC (UNCW) — Matt Soren delivered six strong innings and Jimmy Yezzo and D.J. Long had three hits apiece as Delaware prevented a sweep at the hands of UNCW on Sunday with an 11-7 win at Brooks Field.
The Blue Hens ran their record to 24-10 and 10-5 with the road win while the Seahawks had a five-game winning streak snapped and dropped to 26-11 and 9-2 in the league.
Soren (3-1) allowed four runs, three earned, on five hits and four walks, but fanned six and pitched out of several jams with the lead. Stephen Richter recorded the final two outs for his third save of the season.
UNCW starter Christian MacDonald (4-1) didn’t make it out of the second inning in taking his first loss of the season. MacDonald was tagged for five runs, just two earned, in one and 2/3 innings.
The Seahawks committed season-high five errors that lead to six unearned runs.
UNCW’s Michael Bass saw his school-record tying 26-game hitting streak come to an end after going 0-for-4 with a walk and hit by pitch.
Luke Dunlap collected two hits and drew three walks to lead the Seahawks. Hunter Ridge, Ryan LaGrange and Terence Connelly each had two hits.
UD’s Cameron Travalini scored four runs and added two hits while Tyler Powell knocked in three runs.
Up next: The Seahawks begin an eight-game road stretch on Apr. 16 at East Carolina (6 p.m.).
How it happened: Delaware scored twice in the first inning off MacDonald on a two-run double by Powell and then added three unearned runs in the second inning to take a commanding 5-0 lead after two innings. The Seahawks narrowed their deficit to 8-7 with five in the seventh, but UD tacked on a run in the eighth and two more in the ninth to close out the scoring.
Inside the numbers: Both teams put their leadoff hitter on base five times, Delaware scored that runner three times … UD advanced runners on 21-of-35 opportunities while the Seahawks were 15-for-31 … With two out, UD went 5-for-16 and score five runs … UNCW went 3-for-18 in RBI situations.
Notes: The Seahawks used a season-high eight pitchers and Delaware used seven of its own … UNCW now owns a record of 27-15 against the Blue Hens … The Seahawks dropped to 21-7 at home with six home dates left in the regular season … Despite having his hitting streak snapped, Michael Bass extended his on-base streak to 33 games, ranking third at UNCW all-time … Luke Dunlap now has a seven-game hitting streak, one off his career-high of eight set earlier this season.
