Your 2014 Masters Champion at 8-under... Bubba Watson! pic.twitter.com/l7fClnztrj— Eye on Golf (@EyeOnGolf) April 13, 2014
6:45 PM: Fantastic way to end our four-day live blog. It's been an absolute blast this week, you guys.
I'm off to Nevada Bob's to buy some left handed clubs - seems like the secret around this place #Lefties— Luke Donald (@LukeDonald) April 13, 2014
6:30 PM: Fun day from Jordan Spieth but he needs to lose the "I just missed that shot by a yard but I'm going to react like I shanked it into the water" antics he learned from Tiger.
6:29 PM: The thought of Bubba Watson ever thinking he's getting too much attention is quite funny.
6:19 PM: Hah.
Has Bubba left the tee box to get his hovercraft? Love to see him hover over the water to the green. Lovely.— Tweeter Alliss (@TweeterAlliss) April 13, 2014
6:14 PM: I have dubbed him Error Jordan on this day.
6:11 PM: Well he tried to. Why is Bubba going for the green from the woods on No. 15? Does he know he's leading the Masters?
6:00 PM: Unless Bubba Watson hits it in the water 29 times on No. 15 this thing is toast. Get him fitted for that new jacket.
5:47 PM: Incredible tweet. And under pressure!
This is Ted Scott's to lose at this point.— Adam Sarson (@Adam_Sarson) April 13, 2014
5:44 PM: This thing is over.
5:40 PM: Bubba just hit a drive LOL yards on No. 13. Baby wedge to the green. Is this thing on the edge?
5:28 PM: Man-sized bogey from Spieth on No. 12 after rinsing his tee shot. If he ends up winning this thing, that'll be the reason why.
5:13 PM: Golf shots everywhere. Spieth and Bubba just hit two crazy good shots on No. 11.
5:03 PM: Miguel Angel Jimenez just grabbed his chest and did some sort of "heart beating out of his chest" motion to the crowd. It was so glorious.
4:55 PM: Interesting insight here from Hunter Mahan:
Augusta National did an incredible job with the course this week. It seemed they slowed the greens down just a tad to allow for more birdies— Hunter Mahan (@HunterMahan) April 13, 2014
4:54 PM: Spieth needs to turn this thing around soon. It feels like it's slipping away a little bit.
4:51 PM: This is incredible:
4:45 PM: Hating.
For all the fawning and reverence paid to the Masters...this isn't stirring to me. Sorry. Miss tiger. Hate away.— Colin Cowherd (@ESPN_Colin) April 13, 2014
4:33 PM: The Masters has started:
People groggy, just waking up from Tiger's pool party yesterday. Can't tell if Jason Dufner is sleeping or awake. No real way to tell.— Dan Jenkins (@danjenkinsgd) April 13, 2014
4:23 PM: I did too:
Just saw Drake in @JordanSpieth gallery inside the ropes— Jeff Munneke (@MinnesotaMunn) April 13, 2014
4:21 PM: Couples into the drink on No. 11. It was fun, Fred. It always is. Until next year...
4:16 PM: Spieth has nine putts thru seven holes, which seems good.
4:09 PM: Spieth birdies No. 7, this is getting ridiculous.
4:07 PM: Matt Kuchar working on his bowling pose:
4:03 PM: This is pretty funny:
It's great having the twitter @masters. I'm getting all kinds of secret golf information now that the tournament is underway!— Steve Masters (@masters) April 10, 2014
3:50 PM: "Where's Tiger?" -Zero people
3:56 PM: Bubba is playing the par 3s under par. That's not a good sign for The Kid.
3:54 PM: Spieth is basically tearing down flagsticks at this point. He's clearly submitting to the Sunday pressure.
3:43 PM: This photo of Augusta is pretty phenomenal:
3:41 PM: Yikes.
Now trending: Jordan "Speith" and "Ricky" Fowler. Good job, good effort.— Jason Sobel (@JasonSobelGC) April 13, 2014
3:36 PM: Ian Poulter looks like Jonas Blixt and Rickie Fowler's closets threw up on him.
3:32 PM: Spieth just chipped in at No. 4 and led by three for a minute until Bubba made a birdie as well. This is elite stuff.
3:26 PM: Welp, all of a sudden Spieth leads by two over everyone. Kuchar just had a hideous double bogey.
3:13 PM: Kuchar joins him. This is too much to take. Rory is Rory-ing. Couples is hanging.
3:09 PM: Spieth, alone. My goodness.
3:05 PM: This is basically Jimenez saying "I give zero Fs":
2:59 PM: Do caddies have to rake the bunkers if they're on the last group of the tournament? Seems unnecessary.
2:57 PM: This was pretty hilarious:
2:55 PM: I'm not convinced Spieth is going to hit a fairway today. Missed the first two and both were ugly.
2:49 PM: Rickie is putting like his buddy Bubba did yesterday. Just three-putted the 2nd from six feet.
2:47 PM: Or not. That was a ridiculous second shot by Spieth at the first. He needed it, too, to get back on track.
2:41 PM: Spieth might be in for an 81.
2:39 PM: Final pairing is off, the 2014 Masters has almost begun.
2:30 PM: I'm already nervous. I might not make it another five hours.
2:22 PM: Fred Couples just birdied the first two holes. He's two back. This is getting real.
2:17 PM: I love players offering commentary on the tournament. Today, Luke Donald is up:
I quite like Rickie to make a run, he made 9 birdies and an eagle in practice, he'll just need to avoid the big number that always lurks.— Luke Donald (@LukeDonald) April 13, 2014
2:05 PM: Fred Couples just birdied No. 1. I don't know if the National is big enough for all the emotion. My gosh. Your thoughts, Mr. Nantz?
2:04 PM: Caroline Wozniacki ditched the pink hair. I can also barely see her face behind that ring.
2:03 PM: I see that Nantz is ALL IN on Spieth. Makes two of us.
2:01 PM: This is a fantastic shot. I love that hat:
1:59 PM: Hello, Jim.
1:44 PM: Welp, this is crazy:
April 13, 1997 - 13th ranked player in world, @TigerWoods becomes youngest Masters winner. Today's the 13th. Spieth's rank: 13.— Justin Ray (@JRayESPNGolf) April 13, 2014
1:39 PM: Bubba sandwiched his final-round 68 in 2012 with a 77 and a 78 the other two years. He's only broken par once in the final round.
1:34 PM: Some really good final round Masters stats in this Golf Channel piece.
1:22 PM: Every 17 years the "youngest Masters champion ever" record has been broken. On this date, too:
1:13 PM: Here's Jordan Spieth on what he expects today: "I don't think I've ever had a round where I've been nervous on every single swing, shot and putt. I'm sure that will happen (Sunday), but hopefully, I can channel it positively and stay grounded, stay cool and see what happens."
1:03 PM: This should win a green jacket:
12:57 PM: Spieth and his caddie told Bubba Watson on Saturday at the range that they'd see him in the final group on Sunday. They were joking, I think. Either way, baller.
12:55 PM: Amen Corner feed is live, about to strap in for the best six-hour ride of the year.
12:23 PM: Best day in sports? I could be talked into it..
12:04 PM: I was reading about Tiger's 1997 win last night (because of Spieth). I forgot how dominant he was. It was truly masterful stuff -- not sure we'll ever see anything like it ever again.
11:37 AM: Verne's best calls at the Masters? All of it.
11:34 AM: Cool shot of Bubba Watson on the 17th hole on Saturday:
11:26 AM: A reminder.
#Masters Champions: every one inside top-4 at start of rd4 since 1990; every one within 3 shots of the lead at start of rd4 since 1997.— Stanley (@Golf_Stats) April 13, 2014
11:23 AM: Hello, friends. Are you ready for the greatest day of the golf season?
