Oosthuizen forced out of Joburg Open after freak injury

Share

Gaby Lubeck, an official at the Randpark Golf Club where the tri-sanctioned European Tour, Asian Tour and Sunshine Tour event is being staged, decided on an unusual course of action. "So when it rained all Tuesday at Randpark, I made a decision to use the trick".

The remaining 65 professionals (including ties) proceed to the final two rounds, which will be played on Saturday and Sunday at Firethorn Course. Burmester finished the previous campaign with a top-four finish at the DP World Tour Championship and was T27 in last week's Mauritius Open. It's always nice leading a big tournament and especially the Joburg Open. Nine birdies and a bogey resulted in a 63 and a one shot lead going into Friday's second round.

He is joined by James Morrison, Sebastian Heisele and South African trio Jared Harvey, Erik Van Rooyen and Ockie Strydom. "I'm obviously very happy and pleased", he said.

"I was really looking forward to playing this week". I'm just out here to have fun, obviously, so I'm very blessed to be playing well.

The 2010 Open champion was looking to build on a closing 67 which saw him finish in a share of seventh at last week's Afrasia Bank Mauritius Open but somehow managed to get his finger jammed in a luggage trolley at the airport on Monday. South African Darren Fichardt is the defending champ.

Oosthuizen, who was coming off successive top-10 finishes at the Nedbank Golf Challenge and Mauritius Open, was understandably one of the favourites to win the R16.5 million event, but he proposed compatriot Dylan Frittelli, the victor of the Indian Ocean island tournament last weekend, as a strong contender for the title at Randpark.

Oosthuizen was replaced in the field by American Cody Martin.
