What happened at the South African Open?
Louis Oosthuizen won his country’s national title and one of the oldest championships in golf at the 115th South African Open.
The home favourite already had a Claret Jug to his name and had claimed four of his eight European Tour victories in South Africa, but a national Open was still missing from the 36-year-old’s CV.
Oosthuizen started the final day with a three-shot lead but instantly put himself under pressure with back-to-back bogeys at the 2nd and 3rd.
A birdie spree followed, with four gains before the turn, an eagle at 14 and one last birdie at 16. He bogeyed 17 but by then it was all over. Oosthuizen finished six clear of runner-up Romain Langasque.
