Masters Golf Tournament 2012 Leaderboard: Louis Oosthuizen's Double Eagle Helps Snag Lead

For those to have a chance at earning a green jacket on Sunday, one must start their final round at Augusta National Golf Club strong. That's just what South Africa's Louis Oosthuizen has done, using a double eagle on the par-5, Hole No. 2 to take a two stroke lead on Phil Mickelson and Peter Hanson.

Oosthuizen's improbable feat pushed his score from 7-under par to 10-under in just one swing, and now Mickelson and third-round leader Hanson are playing catch up. There's still a lot of holes to play, as Oosthuizen is thru three holes, and Mickelson and Hanson are thru two.

Meanwhile, Westchester, Pa. native Jim Furyk has complete his first nine holes in the final round at one-over par. Furyk is currently even for the championship.
