The US Masters. The most famous tournament of all. A global TV audience of 150 million, a string of legendary winners...and a curse for Australian golfers. From Jim Ferrier blowing a huge lead in 1950 to Greg Norman's litany of disasters over decades, the US Masters constantly turned its back on any Australian who looked likely to get close to the holy grail. The curse grew a life of its own. Norman spent 22 years trying to win the tournament he craved above all others, only to be stopped cold by nerves, rotten luck and bizarre twists of fate at Augusta National. He lost to Jack Nicklaus in 1986 by one shot. He lost in 1987 to a truly freakish chip shot from Larry Mize. And then in 1996, Norman led by six shots at the start of the final round. This was surely it! A major had never been lost with such a commanding lead. But on one of Australian sport's darkest days, Norman succumbed by five strokes. Then came Adam Scott. As a boy he'd cried while watching Greg Norman's implosions. He became world junior champion, and a protege of Norman. Respectful and dignified, he was one of the most popular players in the US and Europe. His swing was to die for, but his putting was a nightmare. He kept falling apart in big tournaments. In 2009, when Scott's career was in free-fall, when his world ranking plummeted and his personal life was on the skids, the only two men to show faith in him were Greg Norman and the Argentinian player, Angel Cabrera. Come 2013, Scott is in the thick of an impossibly dramatic Masters. Three Australians have fought for the lead. Only Scott makes it to a sudden-death playoff - against Cabrera. As darkness closes in, he has what Norman never had: one putt to win the Master
