AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) - A brief look at the final round of the Masters on Sunday:

WINNER: Bubba Watson, who shot a 3-under 69 to beat Jordan Spieth and Jonas Blixt by three shots.

WINNING REWARDS: Watson got the winner’s green jacket, and a check for $1.62 million.

SECOND TIME: This was Watson’s second win in three years. He won in a playoff in 2012.

ROOKIES FALL: Jordan Spieth and Jonas Blixt were trying to become the first rookie to win the Masters in 35 years.

SHOT OF THE DAY: Watson’s drive on the dogleg par-5 13th that soared above the trees before clipping them on the way down and leaving him with just a sand wedge to the green. He would make his last birdie on the hole, stretching his lead to three shots.

NOTEWORTHY: Six of the last 12 Masters champions are left-handers.

KEY STATISTIC: Watson was the first Masters winner in five years to start the final round with a share of the lead.

QUOTEWORTHY: “Again, I just got lucky enough to have two green jackets. I’m just trying to keep my tour card every year and if people say that I’m a good player, that’s great.” - Bubba Watson

NEXT YEAR: The 2015 Masters will be April 9-12 at Augusta National Golf Club.
