AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) -- Angel Cabrera claimed the second major championship of his career Sunday, winning the Masters on the second hole of a three-way playoff.
Cabrera, the 2007 U.S. Open winner, pulled off a remarkable par at No. 18 after hitting his tee shot behind a tree. Kenny Perry also made par after his chip rolled up just short of the hole, while Chad Campbell was eliminated in sudden death when he missed a 4-footer to save par from the bunker.
The two survivors moved on to No. 10, where Perry hit an awful approach far left of the green. His chip skidded past the cup and he never got a chance to finish up. Cabrera two-putted for par to win the green jacket.
