Oosthuizen bounces back
Monday 16 April 2012
Louis Oosthuizen produced the perfect response to his play-off defeat at the Masters by winning the Malaysian Open yesterday.
The 29-year-old South African former Open champion, who missed out on a second major at Augusta when he lost a play-off to the American Bubba Watson, finished 17 under par at Kuala Lumpur Golf & Country Club – three shots ahead of Scotland's Stephen Gallacher.
Oosthuizen said that the 30-hour journey from Georgia had made things tough but he coped admirably with the jet-lag, carding four sub-70 rounds. He completed his third round (a 69) early yesterday, after storms on Saturday, before posting a final-round four-under 68.
"I thought I was going to be a lot more tired," he said after his fifth European Tour triumph.
Wow - what a weekend for British Motorcycle racing!
