His wife and newly adopted son were home in Florida in 2012 when Watson made four straight birdies on the back nine and won on the second playoff hole with his great escape out of the trees.
Small town guy does it again regains green jacket
Watson made it look routine over the final hour. On a Sunday when Spieth was trying to become the youngest winner in Masters history and 50 year old Miguel Angel Jimenez had a chance to become the oldest major champion, Watson turned in another masterpiece and joined an elite group as the 17th player to win multiple Masters.
Surprisingly for Augusta, the most compelling action was on the front nine.
"Small town guy named Bubba now has two green jackets," Watson said. "It's pretty wild."

"After giving it away last year, I wanted it back," Watson said. "I told Adam we could just swap it back and forth every year."
Watson kept his poise during an early burst of birdies from 20 year old Jordan Spieth, turned the tournament in his favor with consecutive two shot swings to close out the front nine, and coasted to a 3 under 69 to win the Masters by three shots over Spieth and Jonas Blixt of Sweden.
Watson's only nervous moment was a drive so mammoth around the corner on the 13th hole that it clipped a few trees and still went some 360 yards, leaving just a sand wedge into the par 5.
"Seeing him back there . what an amazing feeling as a parent," he said. "And then throw on the green jacket on top of it just changes everything."
"The shot out of the woods made me famous," Watson said. "But this one was a lot better for me and my nerves."
Spieth could only watch from the side of the green.
That was his lone birdie on the back nine. No one got closer than three shots the rest of the way.
too powerful, too experienced, too tough to beat. Spieth closed with six pars for a 72 and tied for second with Blixt, who never went away but never really threatened. Blixt shot a 71.
Instead of hitting a 40 yard hook out of a forest of Georgia pines the signature shot in his playoff victory two years ago the final act Sunday at Augusta National took place on the 18th green. Watson had a three shot lead and consulted with his caddie on a 15 foot birdie putt.
"I went over to him and I said, 'I'm not very good at math, but we've got four putts, right?'" Watson said.
His tee shot on No. 12 found Rae's Creek. He Nike Coats For Boys missed a short birdie attempt on the 13th.

I've worked my whole life to lead Augusta on Sunday. And although I feel like it's very early in my career, and I'll have more chances, it's a stinger," Spieth said.
After high fiving the crowd on his way to sign his card, Watson returned to Butler Cabin to take back that green jacket after slipping it on Adam Scott a year ago.
first try, Spieth looked to be well on his way.
Watson finished at 8 under 280 and goes to a career best No. 4 in the world.
But he three putted for bogey on No. 8 the first 6 on his card all week as Watson got up and down for birdie to tie for the lead. Spieth then made a rookie mistake, leaving his approach below the flagstick on No. 9 and watching it roll back into the fairway, setting up another bogey and two shot swing.
Nine players were separated by three shots at the start of the final round only for this to turn into a two man show. For the opening two hours, it was anything but dull.
This was more about great golf than Bubba golf.
This was nothing like the Masters he won two years ago, especially when it was over.
Jimenez, the ageless wonder from Spain, shot 71 and finished alone in fourth. Matt Kuchar lost a share of the lead with a four putt double bogey on the fourth hole and never challenged again. He closed with a 74 and tied for fifth with Rickie Fowler (73).
He dazzled the massive crowd early by holing out for birdie from the front bunker on No. 4, and making back to back birdies to build a two shot lead through seven holes. Bidding to become the first player in 35 years to win a green jacket in his Nike Gray Sweatshirt Womens
