Louis Oosthuizen makes ace on Royal Troon's par-3 14th hole

Louis Oosthuizen didn’t get off to the hottest start at the British Open on Thursday, failing to take advantage of any of the first six holes, which play the easiest at Royal Troon. He even dropped a shot at the 123-yard par-3 eighth and an understandable bogey on the difficult 10th.

The 2010 Open champion came to the par-3 14th, however, and turned around his round in a hurry.


From 167 yards away with a 6-iron, Oosthuizen hit a tight, low draw to the hole location. The ball landed a yard short and right of the hole, bounced left and in for a remarkable ace. Oosthuizen sent his hat flying as he and Padraig Harrington, one of his playing partners, celebrated.

The eagle got Oosthuizen to even par on the round.
