This is so awesome.

Louis Oosthuizen hit a 500-yard drive at the par-5 No. 1 hole at the Ballantine's Championship in South Korea this week. The ball rolled down the cart path for nearly two minutes before finally coming to rest not too far from the hole.

My favorite part is the guy at the 1:15 mark who just has no clue what's going on. A major winner's ball is rolling 500 yards right behind you, dude!

Unfortunately, despite the fortuitous bounce, Oosthuizen only parred the hole. He went on to finish fifth in the tournament, three strokes behind winner Brett Rumford.
