Louis Oosthuizen….wait…who?  How do I say that? How could this man be ranked #54 in the world and I have never heard one person in the golf world even whisper his name??

  • Maybe because his name is Louis Oosthuizen
  • Maybe it is because he is just plain ugly.
  • Maybe it is because he has only made the cut in a major 1 of 8 times.
  • Maybe because he looks like…..Shrek?

Either way, he’s now known!

This Shrek-like creature made his way around St. Andrews on Friday with a sneaky 67 for a two round total of 132.  For a man who once shot 57 on his windy sea course Mossel Bay Club he will – Hide no more

Louis will not be able to sneak around on Saturday or Sunday at the Old Course as he will stand out as if Shrek and Princess Fiona were to attend “The Decision” live on ESPN.

Yes, the decision.  Louis will have to make his decision over the next two days.  Will he be a Rory, and follow a 65 – 67 with a round of 82 – 84 or will he take the golfing world and all Shrek fans by storm by holding the Claret Jug up on Sunday. 

Bold Prediction:  Shrek and Princess Fiona A.K.A. The Claret Jug will be greater than “The Tiger” and the rest of the field and….live happily ever after come Sunday evening.

P.S. Major props to Ernie Els for funding Oosthuizen’s start in golf through the Els Foundation.  Oosthuizen even said about Els, “Without him, I wouldn’t be here now.”  You can learn more about the Els Foundation at www.ernieels.com/foundation/index.html

    This is hilarious. I think you should stick to this and quit the golf biz. Good work.
