R4 as it happened
-7 M Weir
-7 L Mattiace
Mike Weir wins sudden death play-off at the first hole

-5 P Mickelson
-4 J Furyk
Mike Weir beat Len Mattiace at the first hole of a sudden death play-off at the Augusta National.

Weir became the first Canadian to win the Masters and the first left-hander since Bob Charles in 1963 to win a Major.

The play-off as it happened:

0008: Mike Weir makes a five at the first play-off hole to win the Masters, after Len Mattiace three-putted from 20 foot.

0007: Len Mattiace hits his second putt past the hole meaning he can do no better than a six. Mike Weir has two putts for the Masters.

0006: Both men have putted but neither are near the hole - Len Mattiace is now off the green, while Weir goes six feet past the cup.

0002: Len Mattiace chips onto the green from a tough spot and has a long putt for par which should keep him in the tournament.

2358: Len Mattiace's approach is an awful one - he pulls it short and to the left of the green, with a tree possibly in the way of his next shot. Mike Weir plays a solid, percentage shot into the heart of the green.

2353: The first play-off hole is the 10th and both Len Mattiace and Mike Weir hit solid drives.

2346: Mike Weir's first putt is a very nervous one, leaving him a six footer to stay in the tournament.

2342: Mike Weir finds the lower level of the green at the 18th - he is two putts from a play-off and one from winning the Masters.

2339: Vijay Singh ends his tournament at one under.

2335: Mike Weir holes another tricky par putt and is left with a simple equation - if he birdies the 18th, he wins the Masters,a par puts him into a play-off with Len Mattiace and a bogey will give him second place.

2333: Mike Weir's birdie putt at the 17th misses the hole by a fraction but he is now left with a testing four-foot putt for par.

2309: Mike Weir hits a superb third into the green at the 15th, while Len Mattiace has already dropped a shot at the final hole.
