Matt Kuchar Ties Louis Oosthuizen's 2012 Masters Lead With Eagle On 15

Louis Oosthuizen has company at the top in Augusta, as a phenomenal second shot on 15 by Matt Kuchar came within inches of being the day's second double eagle. Instead, a tap-in putt allowed Kuchar to cut two strokes off his score and tie himself up with Oosthuizen.

Kuchar looked to be playing himself out of contention when he three-putted on the ninth hole, falling four behind Oosthuizen, but Kuchar nearly repeated Oosthuizen's feat of an albatross with this shot from the fairway:

From four feet, Kuchar's work was cut out for him, and with three holes left, a Masters victory is within his reach.

If it wasn't for a difficult par putt by Oosthuizen on the 14th, Kuchar would be in sole possession of first. Elsewhere on the course, Bubba Watson is one stroke off the lead after a birdie on 14. Then again, people have been scoring on the 15th, so we'll see what happens between Oosthuizen and Watson there.
