Louis’s Open win a boost

LOUIS Oosthuizen missed the cut in his first two Masters, but winning last year’s British Open has given the South African a major jolt of confidence for his third appearance at Augusta National.
Nine months ago, Oosthuizen claimed his first major title with a crushing seven-shot victory after delivering a superlative display of driving at St Andrews.
 “Going into any tournament now, my confidence is a lot higher, and especially at the majors,” Oosthuizen, 28, said at Augusta National on Tuesday.
 “St Andrews just showed me that I can compete in big tournaments. It was a great tournament for me and I’m just trying to go forward from there.”
 The Masters was the one tournament overseas Oosthuizen made sure he watched on television whenever possible as a child. As a player, it cannot come soon enough for him on the golfing calendar. – Reuters
