AUGUSTA, Ga. — When you’ve waited so long and come so close to joining golf’s major champions’ club, getting the opportunity to celebrate twice seems entirely appropriate.
Adam Scott won the 77th Masters at Augusta National Golf Club Sunday. Then he didn’t. Then he did, finally and officially. An entire continent likely wept at the scene, a perfect, symbolic connection to the raindrops that gently fell on Scott, facing skyward, eyes closed, arms raised, after his winning putt fell into the hole.
