With the St. Andrews games behind him, South African dynamo Louis Oosthuizen has been making waves at the Scandinavian Masters tournament. The Winner of the British Open goes into the tournament as one of the favorites, with the hopes of millions on his shoulders.

All the indicators suggest that Louis Oosthuizen will have a good showing. He is most definitely a skilled golfer; he took out the world’s best in an upset in Scotland. On Thursday, in the first round of the Open, he shot an impressive score.

Pulling off a tie with Australia’s Richard Green and Dustin Johnson of the United States, he managed a very low 5-under 67. He is one of the younger players on the tour, and he is surely using his age and physical fitness to his advantage. Many people think that golf is a game for fat old men, but nothing could be further from the truth.

The South African finished the front nine in 1-under 35, leading the pack with a quick start. He collected five more birdies on the back nine, and the faltered on the 13th hole, but still maintained a strong grip on the tournament. If things go the same as they did in Scotland, you can expect to see the South African flag in the finals, with Louis near, if not at, the top.

Eclipsing Tiger Woods recently, Oosthuizen is breathing a breath of fresh air into the Masters tournaments. The games have seen the same faces for so long, it is always nice to see some fresh talent. Tied with Louis, Richard Green of Australia said he had a great game, and that he really felt strong on his driving.
