Masters 2012 Double Eagle Video: Louis Oosthuizen's Albatross Shocks Augusta
If Louis Oosthuizen comes away with his first career green jacket from this year's Masters, he'll have a gorgeous shot (and some fortuitous) luck on the second hole at Augusta National to thank for it.
The South African swinger had struggled on No. 2 this week, registering two pars and a double bogey on the par-five hole.
Shrek's luck considerably improved on Sunday, as he needed but two strokes to score the first albatross (or double eagle, if you prefer) on the second hole (and the fourth overall) in the 76-year history of the Masters.
Oosthuizen stroked a shot from the fairway, about 260 yards out, that bounced softly onto the green and rolled downhill into the cup. With that one swing, Oosthuizen moved to the top of the leaderboard, from whence he's yet to fall.
Should Oosthuizen hang on at Augusta, he'd head home with the second victory in a major championship in his professional career, the first being his surprising win at the 2010 British Open.
Then again, even if Oostie doesn't win, he'll at least have one memorable shot (and a sizable payday) to show for his efforts at the most prestigious venue in golf.
