• Remember when Louis Oosthuizen made a 2 at the 2nd

    Do you remember the day Louis Oosthuizen wrote himself into Augusta history as he made the first albatross to be televised live on TV?

    Oosthuizen’s double-eagle was the fourth overall at the tournament, the first since Jeff Maggert did it in 1994, and the first-ever on the second hole.

    ‘It has to be the most memorable shot of my career so far,’ Oosthuizen said in 2012. ‘To have an albatross is rare enough, but to have one in the final round at Augusta when you’re in contention to win The Masters was very special and something I’ll always remember when I look back on my career.

    ‘I knew the shot was good as soon as I’d hit it, but I didn’t know just how good until I heard the cheers from the people behind the green.

    ‘Augusta is really known for its Sunday roars, so to hear the noise when the ball dropped into the hole was a great feeling.’

    Oosthuizen would go on to lose to Bubba Watson in a playoff.
