Slow starting Oosthuizen goes oh so close at US Open
- Updated: June 22, 2015
Louis Oosthuizen was South Africa’s best finisher at Sunday’s US Open at the controversial Chambers Bay course in Seattle.
American Jordan Spieth won his second major of the year with a one-shot victory and carded a five-under total of 275.
Dustin Johnson, seeking his first major crown, shared second with Oosthuizen, who sensationally birdied six of the last seven holes, including five in a row from the 12th, for a 67.
Had Oosthuizen fared better than his first round 77, who knows what would have happened!
Next best South African was Branden Grace, whose victory hopes evaporated with a double-bogey at the 16th, where his tee shot ended up out-of-bounds. He shared fourth place on 277.
Other South Africans in the year’s second major were Charl Schwartzel (278), Thomas Aiken (284), Ernie Els (281) and Geroge Coetzeen (294).
