Louis Oosthuizen Biography

Lodewicus Theodorus Oosthuizen (nickname Louis) was born on the 19th October 1982 in Mossel Bay, South Africa. Ernie Els supported Louis financially for three years through his foundation. He won numerous amateur titles before turning professional in 2002 at the age of 19.

On the Sunshine Tour, Louis has won five professional tournaments; the 2004 Vodacom Origins of Golf Tour event at Arabella, the 2007 Dimension Data Pro-Am, Platinum Classic, and the Telkom PGA Championship twice, in 2007 and 2008. He played on the European Challenge Tour in 2003 and has been a member of the European Tour since 2004. In 2009, he finished 31st on the Race to Dubai. He has featured in the top 50 of the Official World Golf Rankings. In March 2010, he won his first European Tour event at the Open de Andalucia de Golf.

Louis entered the 2010 Open Championship at St Andrews ranked 54th. He shot a 65 on the first day, placing him in second place, behind a 63 shot by Rory McIlroy. His 67 on Friday was the lowest round of the day and his two-day total of 132 tied the record for the lowest 36-hole score in an Open Championship at St Andrews. A 69 on Saturday placed him at 15-under-par, and four shots clear of second-place Paul Casey (link Jim) with one round to play

On Sunday, Casey closed the gap to three shots on the 8th hole, before Oosthuizen drove the 9th green and made a long putt for eagle. On the 12th hole, Louis made birdie, while Casey hit his drive into a gorse bush, and wound up making triple bogey to give Oosthuizen an eight-shot lead. In the end, Oosthuizen shot 71 on Sunday, and 16-under-par 272 for the championship, to win by seven strokes. His 272 was the second lowest in St Andrews history. Casey eventually finished third with Lee Westwood taking second.

Louis claims his focus is due to a red spot marked on his glove, designed to act as his trigger. He looks at that spot as the beginning of his pre-shot routine remaining totally focused and relaxed before every shot.
