Louis Oosthuizen makes The 2016 Open's 1st hole-in-1

The player with what many consider to be the best swing in golf makes his second ace at a major THIS year.

Louis Oosthuizen has a knack for pulling off incredible shots at the major championships. The South African, who carded the first albatross ever at Augusta's second hold a few years ago and then made a hole-in-one at this year's Masters, made the first ace of The Open on Thursday.

We did not have to wait long for our first hole-in-one, either, with King Louis dropping it softly into the cup on the 14th in the first half of the first round. We've seen a few hole-outs and some near-aces already, so the best in the world are taking aim on what have turned out to be some of the easiest scoring conditions at Troon.

Oosty, however, has the first of what could be multiple aces.
