To say that Louis Oosthuizen feels comfortable playing on home soil would be an understatement. With his six-stroke victory at The South African Open, the 36-year-old won his ninth European Tour title; five have come in his native country.  “I wish the family was here,” Oosthuizen said, struggling to fight back tears on the 18th green. “I knew today was either going to be very special or heartbreaking. I know there's only a few who have won The Open and the SA Open so I'm very chuffed to have my name on this. This feels very special. This is perfect.”  He relied on a G400 LST driver, averaging 347.8 yards off the tee, and was #1 in Strokes Gained Driving. He is one of just six players to have won both SA Open and The Open Championship, which he captured in 2010.

The sun was shining on Louis Oosthuizen all week as the South African basked in the warm reception of his homecountry fans at the Nedbank Golf Challenge in Sun City. He contended throughout, earning a third-place finish at -11, his best result of the season. He was especially sharp with his iron play, placing second in greens in regulation. PING Pro Matt Wallace posted a T5 at the tournament won by Lee Westwood.

22082018Nine PING pros are among the top 125 players who qualified for the FedExCup Playoffs that begin Thursday at the Northern Trust.

PING’s highest-ranked player in the FedExCup is Bubba Watson at fifth. He’s a three-time winner this season and still one of the PGA Tour’s prodigious drivers. Tony Finau, third in driving distance and 12th in points, has twice been runner-up this season among his eight top 10s.
 
Andrew Landry and Austin Cook earned their way into the playoffs with wins and high finishes. Louis Oosthuizen had third- and fifth-place results this season. Englishman Tyrrell Hatton is a FedExCup rookie on the strength of four top 10s — two in WGC events, two at majors.
