Sunday afternoon, Bubba Watson finished off an amazing four rounds of golf by claiming his second green jacket in three years.
Most golfers dream of capturing the ultimate prize of winning the biggest event in the sport, and some never even come close. On the other hand, though, some are fortunate enough to not only win the event once, but multiple times just as Watson did on Sunday.
