Oosthuizen's double-eagle ball worth money

RSS

If Louis Oosthuizen goes on to win the Masters, the ball he used to make an albatross at the par-5 second hole will be worth a lot of money.

To one dealer of Masters memorabilia, the ball caught by Wayne Mitchell of Allentown, Pa., will be worth $20,000 if Oosthuizen is the champion.

Green Jacket Auctions, which sells a variety of mementos ranging from tournament-used clubs to green jackets, tweeted the price tag for the dimpled dandy.

If the South African comes up short, the ball is worth $2,500.

Oosthuizen made the deuce from 260 yards with a Ping S56 iron. It is the first albatross at the second in Masters history and only the fourth on any hole at Augusta National.
