Re-live Bubba Watson's Augusta win on Monday evening on Sky Sports 4

Bubba Watson claimed his second Masters title in three years at Augusta National, claiming the coveted Green Jacket with a three-shot victory on Sunday.

It was another fascinating four days, and you won't want to miss How the Masters Was Won, which brings you the story of the American's fine victory on another beautiful weekend in Georgia.

Australian Adam Scott was victorious last year after a dramatic sudden-death play-off with Angel Cabrera, but Watson didn't need any extra holes as his final round of 69 was enough to see off the competition.

In 2012 we had another play-off, with Watson beating Louis Oosthuizen as he produced his typical unique brand of golf to become the third left-hander to win the Masters, but after a third-round 74 this year it looked like the 35-year-old may have to wait for his second Green Jacket.

Debutant Jordan Spieth led the chase after the cut, carding 70 to join Watson in the lead, but the 20-year-old - aiming to eclipse Tiger Woods' record as the youngest Masters winner ever - couldn't improve his score in the final round as Watson streaked to victory.

Swede Jonas Blixt took joint-second with Spieth, while there were top-10 finishes for pre-tournament favourite Rory McIlroy and England's Lee Westwood, who has now played 64 majors without a win.
