The Masters provided plenty of highs and lows for both viewers and the golfers, as well as excitement throughout all four days of the tournament. But there were a few moments in particular that had the masses on social media, and likely, anyone watching the tournament, in various types of amazement.
Below are the three most talked-about moments of the Masters:
3. Louis Oosthuizen’s Hole-in-One
On Day 4 of the Masters, as most of the attention was on the leader, Oosthuizen hit a shot that looked very good, until it hit his pairing’s ball — then it looked even better, as it scooted into the hole.

That Louis Oosthuizen shot was nice, but lets see him bank one in off a Volkswagen Bug and broken down TV tower…. #masters

2. Ernie Els’s 7-Putt of the First Hole
Before everyone even teed off in the first round, Els was essentially out of it.

Ernie Els with the ol’ 7-putt on No. 1 at #TheMasters. A sextuple bogey on a par-4

3. Jordan Spieth’s Sunday Collapse
This one is perhaps two-fold, as Spieth hit shots into the water twice on hole #12. He went from having a 5 stroke lead just two holes prior to be behind by 3 strokes.
Jordan Spieth is …. CHOKING??? Holy Bobby Jones.

What Jordan Spieth is doing to the 12th hole is more shocking than what Ernie Els did to the 1st hole on Thursday.

At least Jordan Spieth is wearing Carolina blue for all the crying MJs that are coming.

There is no truer phrase in sports. The Masters doesn’t start till the back nine at Augusta on Sunday
