Louis Oosthuizen’s albatross at the US Masters last April has earned him the European Tour’s Shot of the Year award.

The tour says in a statement Monday that Oosthuizen’s shot received 46% of the voting by golf fans on its website.

The South African has received much acclaim for the shot, a 253-yard 4-iron, which pitched at the front of the green before rolling across the contours and in.

Oosthuizen said in the statement that “it has to be the most memorable shot of my career so far.”  It was the first albatross ever scored at the par-5 second hole in Masters history.

The award marks the second success in as many days for the former British Open winner, after clinching the Volvo Golf Champions in Durban on Sunday.
