It may not be the Links at St. Andrews, but Louis Oosthuizen still has British Open magic…
The 2010 champion was the first golfer to make an ace at Royal Troon this week, carding a 1 on the 14th hole. The hole played 167 yards Thursday and is the 10th toughest on the course.
Oosthuizen elected to fly the ball just short of the pin, letting it release and hop right into the cup. After Oosty reached the green, that lucky ball became a souvenir as he tossed it into the crowd. Check out the ace in the video below.
