compiled from staff, wire and PGA news

No one who covers golf and follows golf as a fan knew who Louis Oosthuizen was early last week or how to pronounce his name.

However, his performance at the 2010 British Open at St. Andrews, Scotland won’t be forgotten at all.

South Africa has reason to celebrate for its native son who isn’t a soccer player.

Louis Oosthuizen (pga)

Oosthuizen (WUHST-hy-zen), a 27-year-old who had only made one cut in his previous eight major tournaments, blew away the field at St. Andrews’ Old Course for a victory that no one on the shores of the North Sea had seen in 10 years when Tiger Woods ran the competition off the course.

Oosthuizen made only two bogeys over the final 35 holes with a strong wind that was blowing out of the North Sea and swept across the Old Course. He led the tournament the final 48 holes and closed with a 1-under-71 for a seven-shot win over Lee Westwood of England.

The South African never let anyone get within three shots of him in the final round, and he withstood a brief challenge from Paul Casey by canning a 50-foot eagle putt on the par-4 ninth green to pad his lead. Casey had his title chances end with a triple bogey three holes later.

He finished with at 16-under-par 272 and became the first player since Tony Lema in 1964 to win his first major tournament at St. Andrews. Oosthuizen now has 5 victories in his career and moves to number 15 in the world.

The rest of the top four included Paul Casey with a 75 on Sunday, tied him with Rory McIlroy (68) for third and Henrik Stenson (71) was good for fourth.
