Watson kept his poise during an early burst of birdies from 20-year-old Jordan Spieth, turned the tournament in his favor with consecutive two-shot swings to close out the front nine, and coasted to a 3-under 69 to win the Masters by three shots over Spieth and Jonas Blixt of Sweden. REUTERS

Watson's only nervous moment was a drive so mammoth around the corner on the 13th hole that it clipped a few trees and still went some 360 yards. REUTERS
