Jonas Blixt reveals that he was "lost for words" with his second place finish in The Masters, just three shots behind winner Bubba Watson.

Jonas Blixt has admitted that he is delighted with his second-place finish in The Masters in his first appearance in the competition.

The Swede carded a final round score of 71 to finish five-under in the tournament, three shots behind winner Bubba Watson at Augusta.

He told Sky Sports News: "I'm kind of lost for words here. It was a great day. I played decently, hit my driver a lot better, just didn't get my approaches as close as I wanted and didn't give myself enough opportunities to make birdies.

"Overall a decent round and when you shoot under par at Augusta National on a Sunday, you should be pretty happy.

"Bubba Watson played better, I got beat and he deserves to win. I congratulate him for that but I learned a lot today and have a lot more new experiences and can't wait to come back."

Blixt was competing in just the third Major of his career.
