Louis Oosthuizen Secures Back-To-Back Triumphs: Family Celebration Highlights Special Victory At AfrAsia Bank Mauritius Open

Louis Oosthuizen, a seasoned Major champion and former world number four, boasts an impressive career laden with accolades. However, his recent triumph in the AfrAsia Bank Mauritius Open holds a special place in his heart. It marked not only his victory in the tournament but also the first time his family witnessed him clinching a title in his illustrious career, securing back-to-back wins for the first time.


 


Securing a two-shot victory with a final round of 69 at the La Réserve Golf Links course, a collaboration between Oosthuizen and Peter Matkovich, he achieved his second consecutive victory on both the Sunshine Tour and DP World Tour.


Expressing his joy, Oosthuizen remarked, “I’ve never gone back-to-back in my life before, so it’s a big dream to be able to do that, and then having my family with me for the first time when I’ve won in my career is very special.” Oosthuizen finished the week at 17 under par, building on his previous week's success in the Alfred Dunhill Championship.


This triumph adds to the remarkable success of South African golfers in the four Sunshine Tour and DP World Tour co-sanctioned tournaments concluding the year, with Dean Burmester winning both the Joburg Open and the Investec South African Open.


Laurie Canter of England secured second place with a score of 15 under par, closing with a 68. Meanwhile, Sweden’s Sebastian Söderberg's impressive 63 and England’s Daniel Brown's 65, along with South Africa’s Jacques P de Villiers's 71, shared the third position at 14 under par.


Despite a challenging start with consecutive bogeys on the fourth and fifth holes, Oosthuizen found his rhythm and comfort on the back nine. Reflecting on the golf course he co-designed, he praised its spectacular layout and predicted it would become even more challenging in the coming years.


“The golf course was spectacular to play, and I think in a year or two when it has settled and the greens are faster and the rough will have grown a bit, it’s going to be really tough," said Oosthuizen. He acknowledged the efforts of the hosting team in preparing the course for the AfrAsia Bank Mauritius Open.


Expressing his intentions for the future, Oosthuizen hinted at including the Alfred Dunhill Championship and AfrAsia Bank Mauritius Open in his regular schedule, considering them a delightful way to commence his holiday. The South African golfer's impressive back-to-back victories underscore his prowess and set the stage for what promises to be an exciting chapter in his golfing journey.
