Louis Oosthuizen

Completed a ‘Career Slam’ of runner-up finishes in Major Championships when he came joint second in the 2017 US PGA Championship. Many of those near misses remain highly memorable, from his play-off defeat to Zach Johnson in the 2015 Open Championship to his final round albatross at the 2012 Masters Tournament, which ultimately ended in a losing play-off to Bubba Watson. Highlight of his career was lifting the Claret Jug in 2010, cruising to a seven-stroke victory at St Andrews in just his ninth Major appearance. A stellar amateur career included victory at the Irish Amateur Open Stroke Play Championship and a victorious partnership with fellow future Major winner Charl Schwartzel as part of the winning South African team at the 2001 World Junior Team Championships – the pair teamed back up in the 2011 World Cup of Golf.
