The Australian golfer Adam Scott has won the US Masters at Augusta.

Scott beat 2009 champion Angel Cabrera of Argentina on the second hole of a play-off.

Scott becomes the first Australian to win the US Masters, and the first to win a major since Geoff Ogilvy at the US Open in 2006.

Another Australian, Jason Day, was two shots back in third, while Tiger Woods finished in a tie for fourth.

Scott's caddy is the New Zealander Steve Williams.
