Cabrera, at 43 seeking to become the Masters’ second-oldest winner behind Jack Nicklaus, had a birdie chip roll just past the edge of the cup on the 18th hole to start the playoff and then left a curling 15-foot birdie putt just behind the hole on the second hole, the par 4 10th. Scott followed by making his winning stroke with a putter he anchors on his upper chest.
“That’s how golf is,” Cabrera, whose two wins in the U.S. were both majors, said through a translator. “I had a chip on 18 that could have won it, but Adam is a good winner. He’s a great person, a great player. I’m happy for him.”
