While Bubba Watson’s remarkable snap-hook from the pine needles on the second hole of sudden death will be the indelible image of this year’s Masters, it wasn’t the best shot of the tournament. That honor belongs to runner-up Louis Oosthuizen, who holed just the fourth double-eagle in the event’s history on No. 2 yesterday.
Oosthuizen flipped the ball to a patron after digging it out of the cup. Due to its rarity, the ball would have fetched up to $20,000 on the open market, experts say. Instead, the lucky fan, Wayne Mitchell, donated it to Augusta. Interesting choice.
