Masters not kind to Wisconsin golfers

Mark Wilson failed to make the Friday cut at the Masters and Madison’s Steve Stricker also struggled to a 47th place finish at Augusta yesterday.

Stricker shot a final round 3-over par 75 to finish 7-over par for the tournament. 

Stricker birdied the 2nd and 10th holes on Sunday, but bogeyed 12 and finished with three straight bogeys.

Bubba Watson won his first green jacket, beating Louis Oosthuizen on both a second playoff hole.  Watson put his tee shot in the pines, then hooked his ball onto the 10th green and 2-putted for the 1-shot win  It’s Watson’s 4th win on tour and his first major.
