Before turning pro at the age of 19, Louis Oosthuizen developed as a golfer through the Ernie Els Fancourt Foundation, and was hailed as a man to watch in the future.
Those predictions were accurate – Oosthuizen totaled 272 at St Andrews at the 2010 Open Championship, winning the Claret Jug by an incredible seven-stroke margin.
This year he has continued to shine, beginning the season with a successful title defence at the Africa Open in January.
The Masters this year would once again provide a platform for Oosthuizen to display his golfing talent. He came second in a playoff to Bubba Watson after the pair were all-square at the close of regulation play. Watson went on to win, but Oosthuizen was by no means far behind, and won the the Malaysian Open a week later.
