Scott, Cabrera Birdie Last Hole to Enter Playoff at Masters Golf

April 14 (Bloomberg) -- Adam Scott and Angel Cabrera both birdied the final hole to set up a sudden-death playoff at golf’s Masters Tournament.

Scott and Cabrera tied at 9-under par after four rounds. Scott sank his long birdie putt at No. 18 before Cabrera, in the final group, matched him from close range as rain fell at Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Georgia.

The players will start the playoff at the 18th hole and go on to No. 10, if needed. Those holes will then be played alternately, if necessary, until a champion is determined.

It’s the 17th playoff in Masters history. Bubba Watson beat Louis Oosthuizen on the second playoff hole last year, while Cabrera won a three-way shootout against Kenny Perry and Chad Campbell in 2009.

Cabrera is seeking to become the 17th multiple winner of the Masters, while Scott is trying to become the first player from Australia to claim the title.
