It must have been a memorable final round at the 2012 Masters when the pair of hole-in-one shots is an afterthought. Although Louis Oosthuizen was bested in a playoff by Bubba Watson, the South African golfer made Masters history with one of the most impressive shots ever at Augusta National. From 253 yards away on the second hole, Oosthuizen crushed his second shot, watched the ball soar through the air and then travel 80 feet across the green and into the cup for only the fourth double eagle in the history of the Masters.

Sometimes a two is more memorable than a one.

Oosthuizen's remarkable "albatross" vaulted him into the early lead on Sunday but it wasn't enough to hold off Watson, who heated up on the back nine to force a sudden death playoff. After the pair remained level after a do-over at 18, Watson added yet another shot to Masters lore on the 10th hole. After sending his tee shot wide to the right, Watson made a miraculous hook shot from the woods to set himself up to win the green jacket.

"I had a good lie, had a gap where I had to hook it 40 yards or something. I'm pretty good at hooking it," Watson said after the victory.

Of course, there were plenty of other great shots throughout the last four days at Augusta. From Phil Mickelson's flop shot to Vijay Singh's early birdie, scroll down and vote on your favorite shot of the Masters.
