Injured Louis Oosthuizen pulls out of Joburg Open

Joburg Open golf tournament numbers grow

Joburg Open golf tournament numbers grow

In a major change in 2017‚ the Asian Tour has been added as the third sanctioning tour to endorse the Joburg Open with the PGA's Sunshine Tour and European Tour. "So when it rained all Tuesday at Randpark, I chose to use the trick".

Davidse fired a superb 63 at Randpark Golf Club to earn the outright lead ahead of a group of six players, including Baldwin and Morrison, with the top seven players on the leaderboard all making their scores at the Bushwillow course.

The Joburg Open remains the only South African tournament serving as an official qualifier for The Open Championship in the United Kingdom and the stakes could not be higher to clinch the title. "I'll be surprised if a South African doesn't win the tournament and having played with Dylan in Mauritius last weekend, he's definitely one of the favourites", Oosthuizen said.

"I'm obviously very happy", said the 28-year-old.

Davidse mocked his world ranking of 680 with nine birdies and a lone bogey in halves of 32 and 31 over the Bushwillow track, the easier of two courses being used for the first two rounds.

"I was really looking forward to playing this week. I'm just out here to have fun, but obviously pleased to have played well".

Some of the biggest names from the three tours billed for the tournament include the Sunshine Tour's Louis Oosthuizen‚ former tournament champions Richard Sterne‚ Haydn Porteus and Darren Fichardt.

According to Golf Channel, Oosthuizen "jammed his fingers in between two airport trolleys."

Title favourite and former British Open victor Louis Oosthuizen of South Africa withdrew after a freak eve-of-tournament accident.

Oosthuizen was replaced in the field by American Cody Martin.
