A little rain never hurt anything, especially not the biggest tournament in golf. With a crazy Masters weekend (that included Tiger Woods getting a two-stroke penalty for taking an illegal ball drop) the shootout at Augusta on Sunday ended with Adam Scott and Angel Cabrera as the final two on the links.

Fast forward to the 72nd hole in the pouring rain where the two were tied at -8. Scott hit a lengthy birdie putt to finish at 9 under, putting the pressure on Cabrera to birdie as well.
