Lee Westwood Barely Misses Albatross on Masters Second Hole

April 10, 2015

The 2015 Masters is underway at Augusta National. All week, Masters.com is posting the most exciting moments from every round. Watch and relive the best, most breathtaking shots from the first major of the year by PGA Tour stars like Tiger Woods, Jordan Spieth, Phil Mickelson, Rory McIlroy and more, as well as all the holes-in-one, eagles and even (if we’re lucky) the rare albatross.

How Lee Westwood, who is playing in his 15 Masters, didn’t get this to drop is a mystery. Playing the par-5 second hole on Friday, Westwood’s second shot from 279 yards lipped out for an albatross. He tapped in for eagle, but three bogeys gave him a one-over 37 on the front side.

Westwood’s shot is the first on the highlight video below, via Masters.com.
