Shot of 2012 – Louis Oousthuizen

18 January 2013

With 2012 all but a distant memory we decided to cast a look back at some of the best shots on the golf course from last year and award one pro golfer with The Best Shot of 2012!

With such a busy year, full of some fantastic play, it certainly wasn’t an easy task. With shots like Webb Simpson’s chip shot on the 18th hole at the U.S. Open, Ernie Els’ putt on the 18th hole at the British Open, not to mention Tiger Woods’ chip-in on the 16th hole during the Memorial Tournament there were a lot to choose from.

But after much consideration, we have our winner!

Our Best Shot of 2012 goes to Louis Oosthuizen’s double eagle albatross at The Masters.

Until 2012, there had only been one albatross at the Masters, Gene Sarazen’s famous ‘shot that was heard around the world.’ During the final round this year, Louis Oosthuizen was in contention to win his first green jacket. With a five iron from the middle of the second fairway, he landed his ball on the front of the green, watched it disappear behind the bunker and listened to the crowd tell him it had followed the contours of the green and fallen into the bottom of the cup. This was the first ever double eagle on the second at The Masters.
