Lodewicus Theodorus Oosthuizen.  Try pronouncing that name.  Few people can, which is why he’s better known as Louis.  His wide smile and the gap between his teeth have earned him the nickname of Shrek within the golfing community.  This past weekend, the 27 year-old from Mossel Bay, South Africa, mastered the Old Course at St. Andrews and won the Open Championship, his first major win, with a seven stroke lead.  Oosthuizen took the lead in the second round and never looked back; his concentration and consistency unrivaled by anyone else on the course last weekend.  St. Andrews is no cakewalk.  High winds, large greens, and deep bunkers make it difficult to play well and even harder to win.  Nevertheless, Louis managed the pressure and fought through the elements beautifully, leaving the golf community in awe.
