South Africans master jet lag
Friday 13 April 2012
Louis Oosthuizen shrugged off his Masters heartache to make a strong start at the Malaysian Open yesterday.
The 2010 Open champion, who lost a play-off at Augusta on Sunday, had six birdies and an eagle in an opening-round 66, despite a long-haul flight between the events. His South African compatriot Charl Schwartzel, who also travelled from America, held the lead at the end of the first day following an eight-under 64.
"I played very well today," said Schwartzel. "I haven't shot a number like that for a while."
