Augusta, GA (Sports Network) - Bubba Watson and Louis Oosthuizen will head to the 18th tee for a sudden-death playoff to decide the winner of the Masters at Augusta National.

Watson, who lost a playoff at the 2010 PGA Championship, birdied four in a row on the back nine to shoot a four-under 68.

Oosthuizen became the first player in Masters history to double-eagle the second hole and only the fourth to record that amazing score on any hole. The 2010 British Open champion posted a three-under 69.

The pair finished regulation at 10-under 278.

This is the first playoff at the Masters since 2009 when Angel Cabrera beat Kenny Perry and Chad Campbell.

Phil Mickelson was done in by a triple-bogey six at the fourth hole. He attempted two shots right-handed from a bush, but had a glimmer of hope. If the three-time Masters champion could hole his second at 18, he'd have forced his way into the playoff, but an errant drive cost him any chance.

He finished with an even-par 72 and shared third place with third-round leader Peter Hanson (73), Lee Westwood (68) and Matt Kuchar (69) at eight-under par.

Tiger Woods struggled to a three-over 75 and finished at plus-five.
