Oosthuizen holes out at Masters on par 5 2nd hole, scoring albatross (double eagle)
08 April 2012
Louis Oosthuizen just hit the most miraculous shot, holing out from the fairway on a par 5. Double eagle or albatross, the first ever on the 2nd hole of the Masters. Louis is now in the lead at 10-under. Phil Mickelson and Peter Hanson are 8-under. Wow. All the air seems to be sucked out of the final group because of Oosthuizen's albatross.
Nick Watney makes rare albatross at U.S. Open
Thursday, Jun 14, 2012
SAN FRANCISCO-Nick Watney holed out with a 5-iron from 190 yards for a 2 on the par-5 17th, the second albatross in a major this year.
Watney raised his arms and ran back to celebrate with his caddie, Chad Reynolds, and then playing partners Bill Haas and amateur Jordan Spieth. The shot brought him back to even par through nine holes in the opening round. Louis Oosthuizen also made an albatross on the second hole of the final round at the Masters, that put him in the lead. He wound up losing in a playoff. It was only the third albatross in U.S. Open history. T.C. Chen made a 2 on the second hole of the first round at Oakland Hills in 1985, and Shaun Micheel had one on the sixth hole of the final round at Pebble Beach two years ago.
