Louis in the Dunhill Links mix

Louis Oosthuizen fired an impressive 62 during the third round of the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship to rise into contention ahead of the final round.

 

“I was all fired up on the right side and it’s a lot better today. The putting has really kept me together for the last few days. The Dunhill is one of those tournaments where you can just relax and I think that’s helping me to play well,” he said.

 

The 2010 Open Champion made his name on The Old Course at St. Andrews and he’ll have fond memories when he tees up in the final round on Sunday.

 

Day four is full of promise for the Mossel Bay local, but he’ll have to deal with world number one Rory McIlroy and young sensation Tommy Fleetwood in order to triumph at the home of golf.

 

“I’ll be focused on the game come Sunday,” said Oosthuizen. “You don’t want to take away the fun, but I’d just like to put myself in a spot to win the event.”

 

There’s plenty at stake for King Louis, who’ll aim to turn his season around with a win in Scotland. It’s tough to bring it all together on The Old Course, but if anyone can do it, it’s Oosthuizen.
