The Masters Golf Tournament at Augusta, GA is entering its 78th year and is one of the four major championships in pro golfing. The Masters, which is always held at Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Georgia, is long regarded as one of the most prestigious events in pro golfing. From the green jacket to the ceremonial first tee, the Masters has a deep history with unrivaled traditions. But who will win the 78th Masters Tournament in 2014? Let’s take a look at the last 10 years of champions to get an idea.
10 years of golf champions at the Masters Tournament
2013 – Adam Scott
Adam Scott beat Angel Cabrera by birdieing the second hole of sudden death during the Masters 2013 in Augusta, GA. This was Scott’s first time winning the green jacket and rumor has it that he hasn’t taken it off since.
2012 – Bubba Watson
Bubba Watson won the 2012 Masters at Augusta by edging out Louis Oosthuizen during the second sudden death playoff hole—scoring his first green jacket and spot in the winner’s circle.
2011 – Charl Schwartzel
Charl Schwartzel had an epic win at Augusta. While this 2011 Masters Tournament was won by the South African Charl Schwartzel, the stand out story was about Rory McIlroy.

Winning the 74th Masters Tournament in 2010, the lucky lefty Phil Mickelson won his third Masters and fourth major title—three shots ahead of runner-up Lee Westwood.
