Forcing a Playoff

Cabrera, who watched the celebration from the fairway, followed by hitting his approach shot to three feet, setting up a tying birdie that forced the tournament’s 17th playoff. It was the first time in Masters history that two players both birdied the final hole to force a playoff. It was the third shootout in five years, as Bubba Watson beat Louis Oosthuizen on the second playoff hole last year, while Cabrera won a three-way playoff against Kenny Perry and Chad Campbell in 2009.
