Sportsman of the Week Ending 4/14/2013

Amazing finish to The Masters on Sunday, and this blog always loves new major winners, let along the biggest of the majors (says me).  Adam Scott nailed two key puts to earn his first green jacket, and cement his legacy among the PGA elite, and, of course, Australia.  Almost single handedly redeeming Aussie great Greg Norman and his coming up short in majors over his career.  Adam Scott nailed a key 20-foot birdie putt on 18 to seemingly win the tournament, only to be forced to a playoff when Angel Cabrera answered with an approach and tap to match Scott's 4-day score.  After the first playoff hole at par for both, Cabrera missed a birdie putt by an inch, then Scott nailed an 12-footer under pressure to win the major.  He epitomizes what this blog considers, Sportsman of the Week!
