Emotional Oosthuizen clinches South African Open title

Louis Oosthuizen

Major victor Oosthuizen produced a masterclass of mid-range putting and bunker play as his four-under-par 67 at Randpark Golf Club on Saturday took him clear of Zambian Madalitso Muthiya, Matt Wallace of England and overnight leader Charl Schwartzel in the European Tour event.

"This feels very special".

Former Open champion Louis Oosthuizen moved into pole position for the South African Open after a fine third round on Saturday.

Romain Langasque produced a rousing finish with a 66 which earned him outright second on 12 under to book one of the three places on offer at The 148th Open next July, with Charl Schwartzel and Oliver Wilson also qualifying for the field at Royal Portrush.

Yesterday he added the world's second oldest open title to his collection of victories, ending a title drought that stretched back nearly three years to the ISPS Handa Perth International in February 2016.

Canada frees CFO of China's Huawei on bail; Trump might intervene
The judge said that Wanzhou must also return to court on Wednesday, February 6th, 2019 to fix a further date in these proceedings. As grounds for bail, Meng's lawyers cited her poor health - including previous cancer surgery and difficulty eating solid foods.

And they would no doubt have seen a golfer as in control of his overall game as he's ever been.

They were joined in a tie for second by Matt Wallace, who was three under for the day despite his own rollercoaster back nine. I just concentrated on hitting the fairways and the greens.

The charge by Grace in particular served to intensify the focus of Oosthuizen, who admitted he was still hurting from being beaten by Lee Westwood for the Nedbank Golf Challenge hosted by Gary Player.

RIGHT: Oosthuizen was wiping away tears after winning his national Open at the weekend.

"My nine-iron second at that par-five hole was a ideal shot, leaving me with a short putt for an eagle". "I was hoping to do better in this tournament, but I'm still happy that I get to play The Open in Northern Ireland which will be really nice".

Roger Chapman shot 67 to claim third place outright on 13-under par and make the top 29 available players from the Order of Merit who secured spots alongside invitees, Tom Lehman, David Frost and Marc Farry in this week's season-ending MCB Tour Championship - Seychelles.
