Golfer Louis Oosthuizen hit 500-yard with help from cart path

Ball took more than 2 minutes to stop rolling

ICHEON, South Korea - Golfer Louis Oosthuizen hit a tee shot that rolled about 500 yards along a cart path Friday at the Ballantine's Championship in South Korea.

Oosthuizen's drive on the first hole of his second round went right, bounced along the cart path and rolled for more than two full minutes.

The hole was a 583-yard par 5, but the former British Open winner didn't even birdie the hole.  Oosthuizen finished the tournament 3-shots behind winner Brett Rumford.
