South Africa's Louis Oosthuizen, having made the first albatross on the second hole in Masters Tournament history, and American left-hander Bubba Watson headed into a play-off at Augusta National after they tied on ten under par.

Winner of The Open Championship at St Andrews two years ago, Oosthuizen was trying to follow compatriot Charl Schwartzel as champion and had a closing 69.

But Watson, who lost a play-off for the US PGA Championship title to Martin Kaymer two years ago, had four successive birdies from the 13th and just missed for another on the last.
