Bubba Watson

The "Did He Really Just Do That?" Award (single shot division)

Bubba Watson: Nerves seemed to finally catch up to Watson when he badly hooked his tee shot on the second hole of a sudden-death playoff at the Masters. But with a wedge, he manufactured the shot of his life, hooking a 150-yard shot some 40 yards from left to right and to within 15 feet of the hole. The resulting two-putt par gave him his first major -- and unleashed the best non-reality TV crying display of 2012.
