Louis Oosthuizen sees off challenge from Branden Grace to retain Volvo Golf Champions by one shot at Durban Country Club, South Africa retains trophy for third year
South African golfer Louis Oosthuizen has claimed his second Volvo Golf Champions title at Durban Country Club on Sunday by producing two sensational birdies to finish with a flourish against a spirited challenge from compatriot and 2012 winner Branden Grace.
Louis Oosthuizen produced a birdie-birdie finish to win the Volvo Golf Champions at Durban Country Club for the second year running.
KING LOUIS REIGNS AGAIN AT Volvo Golf Champions On Sunday Louis Oosthuizen showed pure class when he birdied the 17th and 18th at Durban Country Club to edge out countryman Branden Grace by one shot and successfully defend his Volvo Golf Champions title. “I knew Branden was going to make a charge and I saw him up there early,” said Oosthuizen. “He was the one that spurred me on. I finished strong and I’m just happy that I got it done.” King Louis’ seventh European Tour title marked the fourth consecutive time that he’s won his first event of a new year. Rest and relaxation clearly factor into the 2010 Open Champion’s form and he shot 68 on Sunday for a 12-under-par winning total. “I take it from the holidays. I didn’t play any golf before this, and maybe that’s the key. I think the home crowd is really spurring us along and we just love playing in South Africa,” he said. Overnight leader Tommy Fleetwood’s level-par 72 was not enough to keep the South Africans at bay and he finish ...
Glad the golf is back on TV. Congratulations to Louis Oosthuizen. Who produced 2 fantastic birdies on the last 2 holes to pip Branden Grace and win the Volvo Champions Championship at Durban Country Club.

TOMMY THREATENS AT Volvo Golf Champions At 22 years old Tommy Fleetwood is one of the brightest young stars on the European Tour, and he shone today at Durban Country Club, shooting 69 to lead the elite Volvo Golf Champions field by one shot on 10-under-par. The former world number one amateur was superb on the greens and led the field in putting with an average of 24.7 putts per round. Saving pars played a crucial role in keeping his nose ahead of the chasing pack, which included Victor Dubuisson and Joost Luiten in a tie for second place on nine-under. The Englishman cemented his place in this week’s field with a playoff victory at the Johnnie Walker Championship at Gleneagles in August of last year. He faces stiff competition for the final round tomorrow, but his confidence is high. “Just have to rely on my short game really, which I've done a lot of work on over the last eight, nine months and I think it's definitely paid off towards the end of last year and it's paid off today, definitely over th ...
Oosthuizen in touch at Volvo Golf Champions DURBAN, 9 January 2014 - Before the first round of the Volvo Golf Champions even teed off, defending champion Louis Oosthuizen repeatedly said he felt quite rusty after a four week break. After nearly flying his tee shot into the main road right of the first fairway, most of his fans agreed. But 17 holes later, the 2010 Open champion lagged just one shot behind leader Raphael Jacquelin and the Frenchman will definitely feel he has a target on his back when the pair set off together in Friday’s second round at Durban Country Club. Jacquelin navigated the 6,118 meter (6,689 yards) layout in flawless style, collecting birdies at the sixth, eighth, 14th, 17th and 18th on his way to an opening five-under-par 67. He looked, for all the world, immune to the swirling, gusting wind that gave golf’s ‘Grand Old Lady’ some real bite and allowed only 16 players in the 36-man field to dip under par. “It was tough, because the crosswinds very strong compared to the . ...

JACQUELIN GLIDES THROUGH DURBAN WINDS TO LEAD THE Volvo Golf Champions! It was windy today at the Volvo Golf Champions tournament, but Frenchman Raphael Jacquelin navigated his way around Durban Country Club without a dropped shot and led the first round on five-under-par. The four-time European Tour winner spruced up the round with birdies at the 17th and 18th for a one-shot lead over defending champion Louis Oosthuizen. Less than half of the 36 competitors broke par as Durban Country Club found its defence in strong crosswinds, but Jacquelin was comfortable in the blustery conditions. He took driver on six holes and made eight successful scrambles, but it was his 23 putts that made the difference. “I'm better when the conditions are difficult. Yeah, I like it when it's tough. Stay focused all day long and I know if you save par, you are always going to be around. That's the way I like to play,” he said. Louis Oosthuizen started his title defence with a confident 68 and took up sole second at the c . ...

Schwartzel eyes maiden SA Open title DOWERGLEN (19 November 2013) - South Africa's highest-ranked golfer, Charl Schwartzel, has his eye on a maiden South African Open title at Glendower Golf Club this week, but refuses to put too much pressure on himself in the search of one of the few plaudits to escape him thus far in his stellar career. The current world number 22 won the 2011 Masters and won two titles each in Europe and Asia, and six in South Africa, but his best result in the SA Open is a runners-up finish behind Tim Clark at Durban Country Club in 2005. "I want to win the SA Open, but I'm not going to put pressure on myself, that's unnecessary,” Schwartzel said on Tuesday. “If it doesn't happen now then I'll win it some other time. “I know how to win but you can't get ahead of yourself. Being considered one of the favourites is a confidence boost and I can feed off others' confidence in me. I've prepared well and if I play well, then I know I can win.” The 29-year-old said being back on hom ...

World Sports News Jamieson poised for Durban golf double Scott Jamieson is set up to win two European Tour events in this Indian Ocean city within two months after taking a five-shot lead after three rounds of the Volvo Golf Champions. Jamieson fired a four-under-par 68 for a total of 201 at Durban Country Club to move clear of Thai Thongchai Jaidee, Julien Quesne of France and South African Louis Oosthuizen. The Scot won the first event of the 2013 European Tour -- the inaugural Nelson Mandela Championship -- last month at another Durban course after the tournament was cut to two rounds by torrential rain. He is alone among the 33 competitors in having shot three sub-70 rounds over the 6,111-metre track, opening with a 69 and shooting a second-round 64 to be one stroke behind Oosthuizen at the halfway stage. Jamieson began the third round erratically with a birdie and two bogeys within four holes before an eagle three at eight enabled him to turn one under par. He made a much better start to the inward h ...
