1916: The Professional Golfers' Association of America is formed in New York City.


Adam Scott has become the first Australian to win the Masters, beating Angel Cabrera on the second hole of a playoff on a rainy day at Augusta National.

The Masters went to a sudden-death playoff for the second year in a row when Scott and Cabrera made matching birdies on the 72nd hole Sunday.
They both made par on the first extra hole, No. 18, before Scott rolled in a 12-footer for birdie to win it.
Scott, playing in the next-to-last group, made a 20-foot putt and celebrated with caddie Steve Williams as if it were over. Cabrera, in the final group, watched from the fairway knowing he had to hit a brilliant shot. He did.
Cabrera's ball pulled up 3 feet from the cup for an easy birdie that sent the two players to the playoff tied at 9-under 279.
