2010 British Open News
The past two weeks on the PGA Tour have been filled with ups and downs!
First, Paul Goydos shots 59 and does NOT win the tournament! Steve Stricker put on a scoring clinic at the 2010 John Deere Classic unlike we have ever seen through the first 54 holes and wound up winning that event for the second consecutive year!
Secondly, Louis Oosthuizen (WUHST-hy-zen) comes out of nowhere to win the 2010 British Open! Who is this guy and where did he come from?
Louis Oosthuizen is a young South African golfer who is starting to make an impact on the European Tour. His victories on the amateur circuit saw him become a professional golfer when he was just 19 years old. Five tournament wins on the Sunshine Tour led to a place on the European Tour, where he finished 31st in the Order of Merit in 2009.
I’d like to congratulate them both on outstanding performances and in Oosthuizen’s case – his first Major win!
