Masters lifts Watson to world no. 4
April 9, 2012

Bubba Watson won the Masters Tournament at the second extra hole of a sudden death play-off with Louis Oosthuizen after the pair had tied on a 10-under-par total of 278. He becomes the 14th different winner of the last 14 Major Championships and the eighth in a row who had never won one before. Seven was already a record. The win takes Watson up to World Number 4, a career high having spent just one week in the World's Top 10 back in May 2011, and a jump of 12 places. Oosthuizen moves back into the World Top 20 with an eight spot jump to 19th.

Australia’s Scott Hend described his week in Singapore as one of the most amazing in his life after he closed with a six-under-par 64 to win the weather-shortened ISPS Handa Singapore Classic. The Asian Tour event was reduced to 54 holes after inclement weather caused almost 10 hours of play to be lost over the first three days. Hend climbs 160 places to World Number 254.

Andres Gonzales won the Soboba Golf Classic on the Nationwide Tour. The 28-year-old from Washington, a playoff runner-up at this tournament last year, shot an level-par 71 Sunday to complete a wire-to-wire win, his first on the Nationwide Tour which takes him up 160 places to World Number 219.
