    Story highlights

    • Adam Scott of Australia won the Masters at Augusta
    • Scott defeated Argentina's Angel Cabrera on the second hole of playoff
    • The 32-year-old is first Australian to ever win the tournament
    • Scott: "I don't know how that happened."
    Adam Scott produced the performance of his life to win the Masters on Sunday and finally exorcise the demons of last year's British Open.
    Scott, the first Australian to ever wear the famous green jacket, defeated Argentina's Angel Cabrera on the second hole of the playoff after both men finished at nine-under on an enthralling day at Augusta.
    As Scott sank the winning putt on the 10th at Augusta he banished the pain and heartache that had haunted him following his humiliating collapse at Royal Lytham in July.
    On that occasion, the 32-year-old looked set to win his first major until he somehow contrived to blow a four-shot lead with just four holes remaining.
    But with the eyes of the sporting world upon him, Scott showed nerves of steel to hole his putt and finally end Australia's Augusta curse.
    "I don't know how that happened," Scott said after his historic triumph.
