By Mark Lamport-Stokes AUGUSTA, Georgia (Reuters) - The 78th Masters began as one of the most wide open in decades, but it will not go down as a classic after a surprisingly Lackluster finish on Sunday when Bubba Watson clinched his second green jacket. Instead the only real fireworks during the final round occurred before the turn as 20-year-old American Jordan Spieth made his scintillating early run, four birdies and a bogey briefly putting him two ahead before he faded. With the notorious Augusta National layout running just about as fast and firm as it can after five days of unrelenting sunshine, danger lurked at every corner and damage limitation was a priority on Sunday rather than birdie hunting. Of the top 13 players by the time the tournament was over, 50-year-old Spaniard Miguel Angel Jimenez was the only one who covered the back nine under par, testimony to the tricky scoring conditions.

U.S. golfer Couples reacts after missing a putt on the seventh hole during the final round of the Masters golf tournament at the Augusta National Golf Club in AugustaBy Tony Jimenez AUGUSTA, Georgia (Reuters) - The outstanding displays by veteran trio Miguel Angel Jimenez, Bernhard Langer and Fred Couples at the 78th Masters suggest that a 50-something major champion could be just around the corner. American Julius Boros is the oldest winner of a 'Big Four' event, having triumphed in the 1968 U.S. PGA Championship at the age of 48, but his record has been in danger of falling several times in recent years. Greg Norman went close in the 2008 British Open at Birkdale at the age of 53 and Tom Watson was nearer still in the same championship at Turnberry a year later, agonizingly missing out to fellow American Stewart Cink in a playoff at the age of 59. Couples, Langer and Jimenez have featured prominently on major leader boards in recent seasons and it came as no surprise when they all mounted a title challenge at Augusta National on Sunday.

Bubba Watson of the US waves after wearing his Green Jacket during a ceremony at the end of the 78th Masters Golf Tournament, at Augusta National Golf Club in Georgia, on April 13, 2014Augusta (United States) (AFP) - Big-driving Bubba Watson captured his second Masters title in three years, pulling away from Jordan Spieth on the back nine for a three-stroke victory at Augusta National. "I never loved green so much," Watson said. Spieth and Sweden's Jonas Blixt, each in his first Masters, shared second on 283 with 50-year-old Spaniard Miguel Angel Jimenez fourth on 284, Americans Rickie Fowler and Matt Kuchar sharing fifth on 286 and England's Lee Westwood seventh on 287. Spieth, a 20-year-old Texan, was trying to become the youngest champion in Masters history.

By Larry Fine AUGUSTA, Georgia (Reuters) - Bubba Watson had just won his second Masters in three years, by the comfortable margin of three strokes, and the long-hitting lefty sounded like he needed to pinch himself to believe it. There is no telling how joining the ranks of Ben Hogan, Byron Nelson, Tom Watson and Seve Ballesteros as a winner of a pair of Masters titles will affect him. "Learning to be a dad and then learning to have a green jacket with you is two big things to adjust to," explained Watson. "Finally I got adjusted to it and here we are, another green jacket," said Watson.
