Louis Oosthuizen Looks Like Shrek

As an amateur, Oosthuizen represented his nation at all levels and was a part of the South African team that won the 2000 global junior championships. In 2004, he went professional and won four competitions in his own country over the following five years. On the European Tour, where the competition is significantly stiffer, his record may be regarded as "acceptable." However, the incentives in the current game are such that decent golf is sufficient to earn a comfortable life. Oosthuizen, a farmer's son, had never had much money in his boyhood, but now he had. With such financial stability, the desire to relax may have been too much to resist.

âSecond, see, itâs aggravating,â he said. âIt's discouraging. That wayward tee shot on 17 ultimately cost me, but I felt like I battled very hard to remain in it and just came short. âAnother player on the verge of an amazing finish was Bryson DeChambeau, who was cruising along with a one-shot lead and seemed to be well on his approach to defending his championship until a terrible back nine sent him spiraling down the leader board to 26th place.

â   & Nonetheless, it was not the same. It will never be the same. Josh's meticulously controlled environment had shifted and irreversibly transformed in the preceding thirty minutes. He was a typical high school sophomore, not particularly bright but also not particularly dumb. He played football, sang—badly—in his friend's band, and was interested in a few ladies, but had no true girlfriend at the time. He sometimes played computer games, liked first person shooters such as Quake, Doom, and Unreal Tournament, was incapable of handling driving games, and became lost in Myst. He adored The Simpsons and could quote whole episodes verbatim; he adored Shrek, though he'd never admit it; he felt the new Batman was OK; and he thought the X-Men were fantastic. Despite what others thought, he enjoyed the new Superman. Josh was unremarkable. ”— Scott, Michael

In January 2014, he defeated Branden Grace by one stroke to retain the Volvo Golf Champions title.


Oosthuizen finished tied for second place in the 2015 Open Championship at St Andrews after losing in a four-hole aggregate playoff at the event's Monday conclusion. He was in the last group tied for the 54-hole lead, but required a birdie on the 18th hole during his final round to level the lead at 15-under and join Zach Johnson and Marc Leishman in the playoff. He birdied the first hole in the four-hole playoff with Johnson, but missed his birdie putt on the second hole, giving Johnson a one-stroke lead. All three players bogeyed the third hole, and after Johnson missed a 15-foot birdie putt on the last hole, Oosthuizen had a 15-footer to force a sudden-death playoff. His putt, though, came up short of the lip on the bottom side, and he finished even-par, one stroke behind Johnson. This was Oosthuizen's second straight major title runner-up finish, after the 2015 US Open.
