At just past 7:20 p.m., as twilight began to fall on the pristine Georgia hills, Jordan Spieth pushed through a doorway and stepped out onto a walkway that sits behind the first fairway of Augusta National Golf Club.
AUGUSTA, Ga. - Bubba Watson held a three-shot lead when he sliced his drive behind the trees protecting the left side of the 15th fairway at Augusta National. Play it safe, and he'd become the second player ever to win the Masters twice in his first six tries.
You win one Masters and you're Craig Stadler. Or maybe Ian Woosnam. And there's nothing wrong with that. Ask the guys who don't have a green jacket. Or a lifetime seat at the Champions Dinner.
AUGUSTA, Ga. - In 1963, Jack Nicklaus became the youngest Masters champion. Seventeen years later, Seve Ballesteros became the youngest. And seventeen years after that, Tiger Woods took the record lower. That was 17 years ago.
It was early Sunday afternoon, more than an hour before the Masters leaders teed off, and the white, hand-run scoreboard near the second hole began to a flash a "3".
Bubba Watson could sense what the golf world wanted Sunday to see 20-year-old phenom Jordan Spieth officially crowned with his first Masters Tournament title.

In just his fifth major championship start, Jordan Spieth showed that he can keep up with the best in the world.
He plays a sexy game of golf, owns two green jackets and — in what constitutes a show of major respect in these parts —Bubba Watson made rabid Georgia Bulldog fans take a break from spring football to watch some golf this weekend.
AUGUSTA, Ga. - Jordan Spieth realizes that he probably didn't look like he was having fun Sunday at the Masters on the back nine as he fruitlessly tried to catch Bubba Watson.
Like John Travolta's character in "Saturday Night Fever," Jordan Spieth strutted down the Augusta National practice range, one confident stride after the next.
To hear Bubba Watson speak, he's someone from a small town in the Florida panhandle who has no business winning one green jacket at the Masters, let alone two in a three-year span.
Miguel Angel Jimenez, Bernhard Langer and Fred Couples made the Masters one for the ages — the older ages for sure.
A brief look at the final round of the Masters on Sunday:
After a 4-stroke turnaround in two holes Sunday, Bubba Watson was in control of the Masters and he cruised to a 3- stroke win over two players.
