This Masters is one we'll remember

For the 75th Masters Tournament, there was literally a little bit of everything. And ultimately there was a young South African starting out the day with a chip-in and a hole-out and finishing with four consecutive birdies to rise above the mayhem and win.

Choi again had chance

K.J. Choi's family says the Masters Tournament is the major the South Korean star wants to win most. Choi was in the hunt once again on the final nine Sunday, but he couldn't keep pace with playing partner and eventual champion Charl Schwartzel.

Dreams of winning jacket dashed

Midway through Sunday's final round, co-leader Rory McIlroy stood 60 yards left of the 10th fairway. All of a sudden, a triple-bogey seven left McIlroy at 8-under and scrambling. He would struggle on the next two holes and finish in a tie for 15th at 4-under.

Breathless finish at the 2011 Masters

There's a lot of adjectives that could be applied to one of the most riveting Masters in history. The one that fits may be how everyone felt at the finish - breathless. It may require a book longer than "Moby Dick" to put into context what the world saw on Sunday.

Matsuyama earns amateur accolade

When Hideki Matsuyama approached the first tee Sunday, he knew he was within range of a top-16 finish and a spot in next year's tournament. Four bogeys in the final 10 holes ended his dreams of an automatic invite, but he still had one more memorable moment.

Aussies proud of play

There would have been beer for breakfast in Australia had Adam Scott, Jason Day or Geoff Ogilvy found a way to hold on to the lead they all shared Sunday. Unlike past Australian failings at Augusta National, this wasn't a case of throwing away the tournament.

Putting thwarts Tiger's charge

Tiger Woods charged Sunday like it was 2001, when he regularly dropped clutch putts and collected major titles. But this is not that Tiger. Despite posting a solid final-round 67 at Augusta National Golf Club, Woods extended his winless streak.

Lefty's putting derails chances

The traditional Sunday roars echoed through the pines at Augusta National Golf Club for the final round at the Masters Tournament. In a break from tradition, few were for Phil Mickelson, as he posted a quiet 2-over-par 74.

Palmer energized by roars for Tiger

Double bogey. Par. Bogey. Ryan Palmer's second Sunday at the Masters Tournament didn't exactly start with much fanfare, but it surely ended that way and included a face-to-face experience with Tigermania. Palmer rebounded from his rough start to shoot 2-under 70 and finish the Masters at 6-under and alone in 10th place.

Player pleased for South Africa

Gary Player became the first international champion of the Masters Tournament 50 years ago. With 25 guests at the Augusta house he was staying in, he watched on TV as fellow South African Charl Schwartzel won his first green jacket on Sunday.

Van Pelt can build on his knowledge

Charl Schwartzel wasn't the only golfer to excel in his second Masters. Bo Van Pelt, on the strength of eagles on the two back-nine par-5s at Augusta National, tied for eighth place to finish among the top 16 and earn an invitation for the 2012 Masters.

15th hole had players seeing red

A quarter-century ago, Jack Nicklaus made an eagle at the par-5 15th hole that propelled him to his sixth and final Masters Tournament victory. On Sunday, Charl Schwartzel also used No. 15 to start his run of red numbers that won him the green jacket. But Schwartzel wasn't the only player to go low on Augusta National Golf Club's last par-5.

Relaxing trip is out this year

For the past 27 years, golfers left Augusta National Golf Club at the conclusion of the Masters Tournament and drove 137 miles to Hilton Head Island, S.C., for the next PGA Tour stop. And they won't this year. The Masters participants who are playing this week will fly west to San Antonio, 1,130 miles from Augusta, for the Texas Open.

Patrons don't agree on best viewing spot

Although it's a Masters tradition to arrive early and claim a spot near the 18th green, some people have a different strategy on the final tournament day.

Fans corner

Blake McLemore, 4, spotted golfer Dustin Johnson walking toward the 10th tee Sunday and made his way to the ropes. "Go, Dustin!" Blake called out. Before he took a shot, Johnson gave Blake a ball. "When they give me a ball is my favorite," the boy said. It was Blake's first Masters, but not his family's.
