St.Andrews Open winner Louis Oosthuizen stays in hunt in Sweden





Louis Oosthuizen’s after lifting up the championship trophy in the St. Andrews open has been looking more confidence at the Scandinavian Master tournament and planning to continue the victory run with the ongoing series also. The 27 year old South African is just two shots behind leader KJ Choi and it is great chance for Louis to get back into the game.

Oosthuizen was two clear after birdies on the 11th and 12th, but a double-bogey at the 17th, along with Choi’s superb back nine, made a set back in his progress. Korean Choi was really outstanding in the ongoing series as he shot a five -under-par 67 whereas this also includes an eagle at the 15th and birdes at the 13th, 16th and 17th which took him to the top spot at the second round.

40 year old Choi said that he is happy with the performance and however it is really hard to play the ball well due to the cross breeze. However Louis Oosthuizen is looking forward to create a history as the first player to win the European Tour title with a week time of clinching the St. Andrew Open Title.

Louis Oosthuizen’s hopes of following victory at the Open with a European Tour title remain alive after a second-round 70 at the Scandinavian Masters. American Dustin Johnson who was leading at the top with Oosthuizen was slipped back at the round of 73on four under, five shots off the lead. However Parnevik, 45, was playing his first tournament after a gap of six months following an operation on a damaged vertebra.
