# Kuuuuuuuch
This, by Matt Kuchar, was the shot of the Masters
Kuch finishes six shots back despite this miracle approach to the 11th.

MATT KUCHAR HAD to be happy with a share of fifth place after a disappointing Sunday at the Masters.

The affable American started his final round just one shot off the lead but cracked on the back nine and finished with a two-over par 74.

He ended up six shots behind green jacket winner Bubba Watson but at one point, Kuchar was playing the kind of miracle shots that made it seem like it was destined be his day.

After finding the pines with a wayward tee shot at 11, he played this miracle approach which pitched up in front of the green and then ran all the way down to leave him with a tap-in birdie.
