2012 Masters Update: Bubba Watson Ties Louis Oosthuizen For Tournament Lead

Bubba Watson's birdie at the Par-3 16th has tied him with his playing partner Louis Oosthuizen at the top of the leaderboard in the final round of the 2012 Masters.

Watson hit a brilliant tee shot at No. 16 rolling to within a few feet and leaving a nice straight putt. Oosthuizen's tee shot also found the green but came up short and he missed a much longer putt before tapping in for his par.

Watson is 4-under on the round and has birdied four straight holes to take a share of the lead with just two holes remaining. During the tournament Watson birdied the 17th hole in the second round and the 18th in Saturday's third round.
