2012 Masters Leaderboard: Louis Oosthuizen Moves Into the lead, Bubba Watson moves into close pursuit

If you believe that the Masters doesn't truly start until the back nine on Sunday, then things are closer than ever to getting started. The final pairings have teed off, and Louis Oosthuizen made a quick move up the standings, sinking a double eagle two on the par five second hole. That was good enough to put him at 10-under on the tournament and in the lead. He's since slid to 9-under with a bogey on hole four, but he's still holding on to the lead.

Bubba Watson has also moved up the ranks, with a pair of birdies on holes two and five bumping him to 7-under overall, tied with Peter Hanson for second. A double bogey on hole four has cost Phil Mickleson dearly, as he is now shooting 3-over on the day. He stands tied for sixth with Lee Westwood. The leaders are not yet past the really challenging holes, though, so there's still a lot of action left to happen.
