Louis OosthuizenLouis Oosthuizen:Louis Oosthuizen Nelson Mandela Day marked in exactly the way he dreamed of on Sunday – to become only the fourth South African to win the Open.

With a closing 71 and 16 under par total of 272, followed in the footsteps of Bobby Locke, Gary Player – four winners on three occasions, respectively, – and 2002 champion Ernie Els, whose foundation gave him his career off as a teenager.

“It’s incredible – just incredible,” said Oosthuizen. “Probably going to hit me in the morning or the following week. I felt I played well all week and the biggest goal for me was to stay calm.”

He added: “I would have kept a record of not going in the bunker (and Woods in 2000), but I went in one day 14.

“It became a bit difficult to have a big advantage, but I’m glad I had all the shots in hand on the 17th.”
