Trevor Immelman built a huge lead on the back nine Sunday to win the Masters at Augusta National.

Meanwhile, former MBA and Vanderbilt star Brandt Snedeker finished in a tie for third with Stewart Cink at minus-four. Snedeker was alone in second at the start of the final round, but shot a a five-over 77 on Sunday.

Snedeker hit a 40-foot eagle putt at two to tie him with Immelman for the lead at 10-under par. From there, Snedeker wasn't able to find his groove.

He fell one behind at the next hole after hitting into a bunker. Immelman extended the margin to two with birdie putt at five, then Snedeker made a bogey, then dropped another shot at seven after hitting another bunker.

Immelman finished with a three-shot victory over four-time winner Tiger Woods.

Immelman became the fifth player to win the Masters wire-to-wire and first since Raymond Floyd in 1976.

Immelman deserved to win and Snedeker is worth more to Nashville than the Predators.

frank, I enjoy Brandt, the Titans, and the Preds, comparing them is stupid. All are great for Nashville.

The incite-ful posters like The Brown Frank are kryptonite to insightful posters. Now seeking the "ignore" feature.

No one ignores what angers them.
