WGM’s weekend wrap

Written by Ben Blaschke

It was certainly an eventful weekend in the world of sport and what better place to start than Augusta where Bubba Watson produced a brilliant final round to secure his second green Jacket in three years. The 2012 Masters champion shot a final round 69 to finish three shots clear of Jordan Spieth and Jonas Blixt, but the important man for WGM was Matt Kuchar who we tipped for a top 5 finish before the tournament began. Kuchar duly obliged with a fifth-place finish so hopefully you had a few dollars on him!

The biggest game of the EPL season lived up to its billing as Liverpool beat Manchester City 3-2 in a thriller at Anfield overnight. The Reds raced to an early 2-0 lead thanks to goals to Raheem Sterling and Martin Skrtel, but they went into their shell after half-time as City came back to level the scores. Phillipe Coutinho then scored the winner with 12 minutes remaining to keep the Reds on track for their first EPL title. Chelsea secured a 1-0 win away to Swansea to stay right in the hunt with four weeks remaining.

Arsenal will meet Hull in the FA Cup final after the Gunners dispatched defending champions Wigan in a penalty shootout on Saturday, while Hull downed Sheffield United 5-3 to reach their first even Cup final. Hull trailed 2-1 at the break but scored four second half goals to book their date with destiny.

Spaniard Marc Marquez continued his dominance of MotoGP with an easy win at the Grand Prix of the Americas in Texas. The defending champion made it two wins from two starts in 2014 to win by four seconds from teammate Dani Pedrosa with Andrea Dovizioso third.

And the boxing world is celebrating the return to form of the great Manny Pacquiao after he scored a unanimous points decision to regain the WBO welterweight title from American Tim Bradley. Bradley beat Pacquiao two years ago in a highly contentious split decision but the Filipino wasn’t taking any chances this time as he unleashed a furious array of punches in the latter half of the fight to stun his previously undefeated opponent.
