2009 Masters

Recap and Scores for the 2009 Masters Tournament

Angel Cabrera defeated Chad Campbell and Kenny Perry in a sudden-death playoff to win his second major championship at the 2009 Masters golf tournament.

Campbell led after the first round; Campbell and Perry shared the second-round lead; Cabrera and Perry shared the third-round lead; and Campbell, Perry and Cabrera finished 72 holes tied at 12-under 276.

Perry had a chance to win outright in regulation, but bogied the 71st and 72nd holes to drop back into the playoff. Campbell missed a par putt on the first extra hole and dropped out of the playoff. On the second playoff hole, Perry hit his approach left of the green and failed to get up-and-down, allowing Cabrera to capture the Green Jacket with a 2-putt par.

Cabrera had previously won the 2007 U.S. Open, and became the first Argentinian to win The Masters.

Phil Mickelson, playing the final round paired with Tiger Woods, put an early scare into the leaders, shooting a front-nine 30, but ran out of steam on the back nine and finished three strokes behind.

The 2009 Masters was the site of the first major championship appearances for young golf phenoms Ryo Ishikawa of Japan and Rory McIlroy of Northern Ireland. McIlroy finished tied for 20th, but Ishikawa missed the cut.

And this tournament was the final appearance in The Masters of three former champions, Gary Player, Raymond Floyd and Fuzzy Zoeller. It was the last of his record 52 tournament appearances for the 3-time champ Player; it was Floyd's 46th and final entry.
