Video: Nick Watney Hits Double Eagle at 2012 U.S. Open

| by Alex Groberman

If not for Louis Oosthuizen doing the same thing at the Masters earlier this year, the double eagle that Nick Watney hit in the first round of the 2012 U.S. Open on Thursday would probably be getting a lot more love.

We’re so spoiled.

Watney left his mark on this tournament when he holed a 5-iron from 190 yards on the 522 yard par-5 17th.
