Oosthuizen stalks second-round Deutsche Bank lead

RSS

NORTON, Mass. – With a chip-in eagle and just one bogey on his card, Louis Oosthuizen outlasted an afternoon breeze and increasingly difficult greens on Saturday at the Deutsche Bank Championship to secure a spot in Sunday’s final pairing with Rory McIlroy.

Oosthuizen, who followed an opening 66 with a 65 in Round 2, is at 11 under and a stroke behind McIlroy, whose Saturday 65 came in more benign morning conditions.

For Oosthuizen it continues a solid playoff run. He finished tied for fifth at the postseason opener at Bethpage to set himself up for a run at the $10 million FedEx Cup payoff.

On Saturday Oosthuizen, who owns a farm back home in South Africa and famously purchased a tractor following his victory at the 2010 British Open, was asked what kind of tractor he could buy with $10 million.

“I think the question is how many could you buy?” he laughed.
