The quality isn't the greatest, but I give you two videos that partially explain why you should have watched the Masters this year.

There is the double-eagle, or albatross, by Louis Oosthuizen on the par 5 second hole on Sunday (link is below). And then there was the miraculous shot by Bubba Watson on 10 during the second playoff hole to seal his victory.

Phil Mickelson and Matt Kuchar gave the field a run for their money on Sunday, but came up short. Tiger Woods and Rory McIroy deflated their hopes on Saturday and both ironically finished up tied for 40th.

Lee Westwood made a run, too. And Peter Hanson, who began Sunday in the lead, just couldn't get the putts to fall during his final round pairing with Mickelson.

In short, it was an awesome tournament.
