The Masters 2012: Louis Oosthuizen Sinks Double Eagle [VIDEO]

With Bo Van Pelt hitting a hole-in-one at the Par 3 16th already on Sunday at the 2012 Masters, no one could possibly top that shot right? Well, South African Louis Oosthuizen just did, sinking the second ever double-eagle (albatross) im Masters history on the par-5 2nd hole to take the lead early on Sunday.


Make the jump to see the shot yourself.

The has only been on albatross ever in Masters history, hit by the legendary Gene Sarazen way back in 1935 on the par-5 15th.

You can see Oosthuizen uses the slope of the green perfectly on his 260 yard long-iron second shot, landing in the center of the green only for it to stop in the cup. In the heat of the moment Oosthuizen tosses the now historic golf ball casually to a fan, and gives a stirring high five to his caddy.
