AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) — Angel Cabrera usually comes up big in these situations.

He did again.

It just wasn't enough to win his second green jacket.

Cabrera forced a playoff with a brilliant iron shot to 3 feet on the 72nd hole of the Masters, but he lost to Adam Scott on the second hole of a playoff when the Australian rolled in a 12-foot putt.

Cabrera just missed a chip-in from off the front of the green at the first extra hole, and his 15-footer on the second playoff hole stopped right next to the cup. He flipped his putter in the air and caught it, then tapped in for par.

At that point, all he could do was watch Scott make his birdie and become the first Aussie to win the Masters.
