South Africa Hosts a Cup and Wins a Jug

Louis Oosthuizen (WUHST-hye-zen) from South Africa won the British Open by 7 strokes to etch his name into the golf history books (and on the Claret Jug). He came out of nowhere to beat the worlds best at the home of golf, St Andrews. On a week where the winds were on-again off-again, he kept his cool and never let the weather or his nerves get the better of him. He even did it on the 92nd birthday of Nelson Mandela. I guess South Africa wasn’t quite ready to slip quietly away after the World Cup.

Oosthuizen won going away.
“Who’s he?” is what many still say.
But a win for this fella
And a birthday for Mandela
Make an all South African day.
