Augusta - South Africa's Louis Oosthuizen and American Bubba Watson took the 76th Masters into a sudden-death playoff on Sunday.

The duo finished the regulation 72 holes on 10-under-par 278, Oosthuizen recording a rare albatross at the second on the way to a three-under 69 and Watson closing with a 68.

It is the fourth playoff at Augusta National in the last 10 years and the first since Argentina's Angel Cabrera edged out American Chad Campbell and Kenny Perry in 2009.
