Winner: Argentina’s Angel Cabrera in a sudden death playoff with Kenny Perry and Chad Campbell. All finished regulation play at 12-under-par.

Where? On the 10th green.

How long? Cabrera needed two extra holes to win, parring both. Campbell was eliminated with a bogey on the first extra hole.

How many? It was the first green jacket for Cabrera, who now has two major championships on his resume. He won the U.S. Open in 2007.

How much?: First prize paid $1.35 million. It also gave him a lifetime exemption in the Masters.

Tiger and Phil: Woods and Mickelson gave the fans a thrill in their dream pairing, making charges but never taking the lead. Mickelson shot a 67 to finish three shots back and Woods a 68 that left him four behind.

Noteworthy: It was the first three-way playoff since 1987, when Larry Mize chipped in on the second playoff hole to beat Greg Norman and Seve Ballesteros.

Quoteworthy: “I’m not going to root against him because I know how hard it is. I know how the momentum swings here and there. If they execute and beat you, I’m going to shake the man’s hand.” Kenny Perry on Cabrera.
