The first one in still the most famous, Gene Sarazen's "Shot Heard 'Round the World" in 1935. Many fans today believe Sarazen's shot won him the tournament, but it didn't. It did help him get into a 36-hole playoff against Craig Wood, however, and in the playoff Sarazen finished off the victory.
Will Oosthuizen's hole-out from 260 yards play a similar role in a march to victory? It did vault him to the top of the leaderboard at the time the ball went into the hole on No. 2.
Here are the four double eagles in Masters history:
- Gene Sarazen, 1935, fourth round, Hole No. 15
- Bruce Devlin, 1967, first round, Hole No. 8
- Jeff Maggert, 1994, fourth round, Hole No. 13
- Louis Oosthuizen, 2012, fourth round, Hole No. 2
