aston and Oosthuizen were tied at 10 –under-par for the tournament and were sent to a sudden death playoff. At that round, the winner was the person who had known how to correct his shot.
At the hole 18, par 4 both scored the same and at the second hole, hole 10 par 4, Watson and Oothuizen had the shot in the tree area, right the fairway’s right sight.
However, Watson had corrected his shot by unloading a magnificent shot and landing it within 15 feet of the pin, put-putting to glory, while Oosthuizen made a bogey.
By the time he had risen the cup, his eyes were watery with tears. He turned into an embrace with his caddie, mom and friends, etc.
“Its really really a memorable day for me when I have chance of wear this green jacket” Watson shared his emtion after receiving the jacket from the previous winner, Charl Schwartzel. “Its very specicial moment. Its amazing.
Now I cant remember anything” he said happily.
