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.

Mention a European country, and Matt will tell you which resorts make the National Club Golfer Top 100s: European Resorts list. He might even throw in who designed the golf course and how many rooms the hotel has got at each one…

Matt got into the game of golf from a young age, following his old man to the local golf club. He fell for the sport, and now can’t seem to go a day without thinking about how to improve his game (Thanks Dad!). Matt has been a member of Howley Hall GC in Leeds since 2020, and is just about managing to maintain a single-figure handicap. He likes to remind people that he once broke 75, but won’t tell people that it was on a shortened course during the winter.

He moved to Leeds after graduating from the University of Central Lancashire with a First Class Honours degree in Sports Journalism. Matt joined NCG after almost five years travelling the world with the Professional Squash Association, working on events in all four corners of the globe.

Matt currently plays a Cobra King LTDx driver and RadSpeed 3-wood. TaylorMade monopolise the rest of his bag, with a SIM UDI, M5 irons and both Milled Grind and HI-TOE wedges, along with a Monza Redline putter. He uses a Vice Pro Plus golf ball, because he’s a bit different…

Away from golf, Matt is a Manchester United fan, and a keen runner, having ran the Rob Burrow Leeds Marathon (his first and possibly last), in May 2023.
