Louis Oosthuizen sinks crazy hole-in-one at Masters
Follows aces by Shane Lowry, Davis Love on same hole in final round
Well, here's an early candidate for play of the year.
Louis Oosthuizen followed Shane Lowry and Davis Love in acing the 16th hole at the Masters in the final round on Sunday, but he got some unexpected help in sinking one of the craziest shots of all time.
Little justice would be done in trying to describe how the moment unfolded for Oosthuizen, except to say that another ball deserves a huge assist on the improbable shot.

As to be expected, the internet went bonkers.
