Masters Leaderboard: Louis Oosthuizen Moves Into Lead, Peter Hanson And Phil Mickelson Trailing Closely

The pressure is building in Agusta as the final pairings have teed off and the last day of the tournament continues. Louis Oosthuizen shot a two on the par five second hole, an incredibly impressive double eagle giving him the lead at 10-under. A bogey on hole four set him back to 9-under, but that was good enough to hold on to the lead.

Phil Mickelson is one stroke off in second place, 8-under on the tournament and even so far on the day. Peter Hanson opened the day in first place but a pair of bogeys on holes one and three slid him back to third place. None of the top five golfers are past hole 5, so there's still plenty of room for someone to make a move. Matt Kuchar, Padraig Harrington and Bubba Watson all sit in fourth place at 6-under overall, well within striking distance of the leaders. As things progress the margin for error gets thinner and thinner, until someone emerges the victor. Stay tuned to SB Nation to see how things develop.
