Following his stirring playoff win over South African Louis Oosthuizen, 2012 Masters Champion Bubba Watson answered a few questions from the press. 

Watson was very emotional after he two-putted for a par on the second playoff hole at number 10 to secure his first green jacket and major championship title.

He hugged his mother and broke down in tears as the realization of what he had just accomplished washed over him.

He actually apologized to Oosthuizen for taking so long to shake his hand because of the time he was taking to cry on his Mom's shoulder.

Just last week Watson and his wife became parents as they adopted a baby boy and the the new mom and son couldn't travel to be with Bubba at his crowning moment. 

Here are some highlights from that Q&A session including what he said to Oosthuizen during and after the playoff, as well as what it will be like to now be a liftetime member at Augusta and having to change locker rooms.
