Oosthuizen buys a new tractor
Thursday 22 July 2010
Open champion Louis Oosthuizen has splashed out on something special to mark his first major win: a tractor.
The South African, who sealed a seven-shot win at St Andrews on Sunday, said: "Being a farm boy it was one of my big dreams and I bought myself a nice John Deere tractor for my farm back in South Africa."
"It's for me to drive around on and I made sure there was enough space for my little daughter Jana to sit beside me. We're going to have a lot of fun."
Oosthuizen is now in Stockholm for the Scandinavian Masters and the fact that he flew from Manchester by private jet underlined his new status. He could hardly take a step without somebody congratulating him on his victory.
"The last two days have been hectic and it will be nice knowing my phone is switched off and in the bag," the 27-year-old said.
