Louis Oosthuizen WDs from Joburg Open because of freak injury

Louis Oosthuizen WDs from Joburg Open because of freak injury

Davidse fired a superb 63 at Randpark Golf Club to earn the outright lead ahead of a group of six players, including Baldwin and Morrison, with the top seven players on the leaderboard all making their scores at the Bushwillow course.

The local favourite missed the cut in Mauritius last week as a flu virus ran through his family, and checked himself into hospital for four days before teeing it up at Randpark Golf Club in Johannesburg.

Davidse's best ever finish on the European Tour was in this tournament 10 months ago when he finished tied for seventh.

"I'm probably going to go do an X-ray today", Oosthuizen said. "I've worked very hard".

The new standalone app offers video and text chat to children while offering parents the ability to restrict who they can talk to. Those companies, in turn, must have their own privacy policies to protect children, the app's privacy policy said.

Oosthuizen's freaky injury, however, opens up the door for red-hot compatriot Dylan Frittelli, who won in Mauritius last week, to try and secure his place at the 2018 Masters at Augusta National.

"When I played at Simola (recently) my little boy was sick with a bad chest, then my wife had the flu and then I got the flu, and lost a lot of weight. I was in hospital for about four days so I'm very chuffed today", Davidse told reporters.

"I didn't really have any expectations coming into the week". "Unfortunately, I don't think I will be able to play this week". This now officially makes the Joburg Open the only tri-sanctioned tournament in South Africa. Burmester's 81 came in the 2010 SAA Pro-Am Invitational but he's made big strides since and became a European Tour victor earlier this year. South African Darren Fichardt is the defending champ.

There will, however, be some struggling to possibly make the halfway cut today, among them last week's victor in Mauritius and the highest ranked player in the field at 55, Dylan Frittelli.
