AUGUSTA, GA. - There is no shortage of must-see geography dotting the landscape at Augusta National, but the most popular spot in 2013 is a remote, nondescript woodsy area to the right of the 10th fairway.

The locals have named it Bubba Land. It is from that spot that Bubba Watson hit the outrageous shot that won him the 2012 Masters. On the first hole of a sudden-death playoff with South African Louis Oosthuizen, Watson smashed his drive down the hill some 340 yards off the tee, deep into the tall pines that border the fairway.

With 162 yards left to the hole and no line to the green, the lefthanded hitting Watson put a 40-yard hook on a 52-degree gap wedge, through a narrow opening off the pine straw. It finished on the green, just a few feet from the hole.
