AUGUSTA - Australia now has its own green jacket and the rest of the world has a golf memory for the ages.

Adam Scott became the first man from Australia to win the Masters, outlasting Argentine Angel Cabrera Sunday in a riveting sudden-death display of hand-to-hand combat that will take its place among the great Masters finishes.

Scott, 32, sank a 15-foot putt for birdie on the second extra hole to end a tense, emotion-charged stretch run that featured clutch shotmaking by both men. Just seconds before Scott’s tournament-ending putt, Cabrera had left his 18-foot birdie attempt agonizingly on the lip of the cup.
