Oosthuizen has to settle for albatross at MastersLouis Oosthuizen, of South Africa, reacts after missing a putt during a sudden death playoff on the 10th hole at the Masters golf tournament Sunday, April 8, 2012, in Augusta, Ga. (AP Photo/David J. Phillip)(Credit: David J. Phillip)

AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) — The putt rolled straight toward the cup, and Louis Oosthuizen was certain the ball was going to drop in.

So, of course, it didn’t.

On the next playoff hole, Bubba Watson made perhaps the only shot more spectacular than that double eagle that gave Oosthuizen the lead for all but the final seconds of the Masters on Sunday.

Instead of the green jacket, Oosthuizen will have to settle for an albatross.

“It’s fine,” Oosthuizen said. “He hit an unbelievable shot there. I played well. This is not one where I felt like I played badly. Great stuff to him, he deserves it.”
