Masters Sunday: Trevor Immelman wins 2008 Masters

On the 30th annieversary of Gary Player's last Masters victory (and the last time a South African won), Player's fellow countryman took home a green jacket. Immelman was able to survive tough weather on Sunday, and defended the lead from playing partner Brandt Snedeker and a frustrated Tiger Woods.

Following a 16th hole failure (after Immelman left his tee shot on the par 3 in the water, which led to double bogey), Immelman found himself in trouble again on the 17th. With a three stroke lead in jeopardy, Immelman, called "the best bunker player" by Gary Player, was able to get up-and-down for a clutch par.

Possibly the most memorable fortune Immelman had during the 2008 Masters came on Saturday on the final hole of Amen Corner, when Immelman's ball, after backspinning off the green, miraculously stopped on a steep slope heading into water.
