Perhaps consolation prize is too strong of an expression for Louis Oosthuizen after he lost to Bubba Watson in a sudden-death playoff Sunday for The Masters championship, but there's no debate he made history.
Oosthuizen made just the fourth double-eagle in Masters history -- and the first ever on the par-5 second at Augusta.
There have been only 17 double-eagles compared to 130 holes-in-1 on the PGA Tour since 2008, according to STATS LLC.
It was Oosthuizen's in any competition.
The others to accomplish this at The Masters were Gene Sarazen (15th hole in 1935), Bruce Delvin (eighth hole in 1967) and Jeff Maggert (13th holed in 1994).
Of the four, Sarazen was the only one to parlay the double eagle with winning the tournament, which he did in a 36-hole playoff against Craig Wood.
