Angel Cabrera of Argentina won the 73rd Masters Golf tournament at Augusta, Georgia, in a playoff on Sunday.

The 2007 US Open champion had a par on the second playoff hole to defeat Kenny Perry of the United States. Chad Campbell of the US was eliminated on the first playoff hole.

All three had finished on 12-under 276.

It was the first three-man playoff since 1987.

Cabrera, 39, was presented the green jacket by last year's winner, Trevor Immelman, of South Africa. He is the first South American to win the tournament.
