South Africa celebrates Oosthuizen victory Top South African politicians said Sunday that Louis Oosthuizen had done his country proud with his spectacular seven-stroke victory in the British Open. Minister of Sport Makhenkesi Stofile and the country's ruling party, the African National Congress (ANC), said Oosthuizen's victory earlier in the day at St. Andrews underlined South Africa's credentials as a winning nation in sport. "Coming only days after we had successfully hosted the 2010 FIFA World Cup, Louis Oosthuizen's win of the British Open golf championship in Scotland makes us really proud," Stofile said. "Coupled with Caster Semenya's return to winning ways at the athletics championships in Finland, Oosthuizen's win shows that we are not just champion hosts."

Ernie’s major contribution to Cup squad 02 October By Jim Slater Columbus – Ernie Els looks at an Internationals Presidents Cup squad with five South Africans and marvels at the living legacy his foundation has given golf and his homeland. The two-time US Open and two-time British Open winner helps young players in South Africa through his foundation. He sparked the careers of Branden Grace and 2010 British Open winner Louis Oosthuizen and helped inspire 2011 Masters winner Charl Schwartzel. “It feels weird. It's hard to explain,” Els said. “Them going through the program. They were juniors and then amateurs, and we go against each other as professionals. “Now we're playing on the same team together. It's a big deal. We helped, but they had the talent. That's why they are here.” That foursome, together with South African Richard Sterne and Zimbabwe's Brendon de Jonge, give Africa half the 12-man roster and help unite a team of worldwide players against a favored American side led by world nu ...
Internationals out to break Presidents Cup drought The Internationals will be looking to break a 15-year drought in the Presidents Cup when the 2013 edition begins on Thursday. The United States have won five of the past six Presidents Cups, with the sixth a tie in 2003, and the International team have to go back to the 1998 event in Melbourne for their last victory.

International captain Nick Price has five of his fellow South Africans to take on the Americans at Muirfield Village in Ohio this week, while two leading Australians will also be key to the visitors' chances.

Masters champion Adam Scott of Australia and his compatriot Jason Day ...
Mercedes-Benz South Africa announces Louis Oosthuizen as Brand Ambassador Mercedes-Benz South Africa is delighted to announce the appointment of South African professional golfer, Louis Oosthuizen, as its new international golf brand ambassador. The 30 year-old South African has had a hugely successful start to his illustrious career in 2007 with three homeland wins in that year. Louis was member of the Ernie Els Foundation in South Africa, receiving help and inspiration from this South African golfing hero. He won numerous amateur titles before turning professional in 2002 at the age of 19. Louis also triumphed at his first European Tour event in 2010, the Open de Andalucia de Golf. He followed that with his first major championship – the 139th Open Championship played over the Old Course at St. Andrews, winning by a massive seven shots. In 2012, Louis won for the fourth time on the European Tour when he successfully defended his Africa Open title. “I’m pleased to announce I am joining the Merc ...
One of the reasons given for the recent surge of South African victories on the European Tour has been the winning legacy passed down by our major champions to other players emerging on the Sunshine Tour. The successes of Ernie Els, Retief Goosen, Trevor Immelman, Louis Oosthuizen and Charl Schwartzel in winning four US Opens, three Opens and two Masters has ensured that South Africans punch well above their weight in the golf world. It has been 35 years since Gary Player won his ninth and final major, the 1978 Masters, yet one must never overlook the role he has played in the development of our modern stars. He has acted as a patriarch to all our top players. Player, 77, is still an actively gigantic figure in golf around the globe,popping up all over the place in his travels. However, he is not going to bearound forever and we need to appreciate him more in this country. It’s an awkward fact that he is celebrated more outside South Africa than here in his homeland, possibly because he is such a global ...
Eastern Cape’s Africa Open is here to stay East London (14 February 2013) – The Africa Open Golf Challenge got underway on Thursday with Ms Vuyo Zitumane, chairperson of the Eastern Cape Parks and Tourism Agency, hitting the ceremonial first tee shot at East London Golf Club. The €1-million penultimate European and Sunshine Tour co-sanctioned event is one of six such tournaments played in South Africa, making it the highest number of European Tour events in a single country. The tournament moved into its sixth year, after its humble beginnings in 2008 at the Fish River Sun Country Club where a young Shaun Norris triumphed in windy conditions. In its second year, it moved to its present home at the East London course, and two-time US Open champion Retief Goosen won by a single stroke from a group of four players. In 2010, Charl Schwartzel made a charge in the final round with a six-under-par 67 to take the title away from Thomas Aiken, and then Louis Oosthuizen won in 2011 in a play-off from Chris Wo ...

The rarest shot in golf can happen any time Bubba Watson has a golf club in hands. Watson was so deep in the woods late Sunday afternoon that he couldn't even see where he was going. With his golf ball nestled on a bed of pine needles, he hit a gap wedge that shot out toward the fairway and hooked some 40 yards and onto the elevated green. Nothing less than the Masters was riding on the outcome. Nothing else would do except for a page right out of "Bubba golf." And on a thrill-a-minute Sunday at Augusta National, where Louis Oosthuizen of South Africa made only the fourth Double Eagle in the 76-year history of this major, it made Watson a Masters champion. Was a great day for watching the Masters!!!
