Some Folks Still Can’t Get Louis Oosthuizen’s Name Right

Louis Oosthuizen didn’t have the greatest time at the Players Championship last week. Sure, he missed the cut, but that was just the sad end to a week that started off kind of inauspiciously. Oosthuizen (pronounced oost-hay-zen) isn’t the easiest name to spell.

Bad back prevents Oosthuizen from making long-range schedule

Such is the nature of his back that Louis Oosthuizen has planned his golf schedule only up to the Masters in April. Problems with his lower back last year forced Oosthuizen to miss more events than he wanted to, and to withdraw after three rounds of the Byron Nelson Championship, after a first-round 75 at the U.S. Open, and most disappointingly to him, after six holes in the British...

Louis Oosthuizen and the 500-Yard Drive

This is one of those things that you just have to see to believe. Even after I saw it I wasn't a 100 percent sure I believed it. It is pretty much the tale of the never ending golf shot; or at least it seemed like it was never going to end. It isn't a Happy Gillmore-esque type shot, but Louis Oosthuizen does get a bit of assistance in knocking this drive a good 500 or...
