Louis Oosthuizen leads by 3 after 54 holes at TPC Boston and he has been trying to find a balance in his life ever since he won the 2010 Open Championship. Oosthuizen joined the PGA TOUR in 2011 along with his good friend Charl Schwartzel and they both have an American home base in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. Oosthuizen has done a lot of travelling over the past couple of years but this year, he has decided to commit to both the PGA TOUR and to his American home base and those are likely the big reasons behind why you are seeing his name on the leaderboard more often.
While some people think that Oosthuizen’s Open Championship win came a bit early in his life, others like Ernie Els and Trevor Immelman felt that Oosthuizen’s win came late because of his level of talent. He was well known on both the Sunshine Tour and the European Tour long before he won at St. Andrews so South Africans were not and are not surprised at what Oosthuizen has accomplished. Oosthuizen grew up on a farm in South Africa and has always been comfortable on a tractor and in a low-key environment although he is very approachable.
Keegan Bradley made key putts on his last 2 holes in the second round to make the cut in the Deutsche Bank Championship and he went on to shoot 63 in the 3rd round. Bradley missed the cut in both The Barclays and the Deutsche Bank Championship in 2011 in the two places where he has the closest ties – New York City and Boston. He had missed the cut in the 2012 Barclays so he was worried that he would go 0 for 4 in his two favorite cities.
