Louis Oosthuizen joins British Open playoff with birdie at 18th hole

If it happens it won't be by the runaway seven shots like in 2010, but King Louis is in position to win a second straight Open at St. Andrews.

The 18th at St. Andrews is a prime birdie opportunity and Louis Oosthuizen was able to capitalize where Jordan Spieth could not. The defending Open champ at St. Andrews hit a steady drive, stuck a wedge close and rolled in a knee-knocking putt to get to 15-under for the Championship.

He now goes to a four-hole aggregate playoff with Marc Leishman and Zach Johnson.
