South African Needs Golf Clubs to Play with Tiger

“It should be great fun. But I wish my clubs would arrive.”
-Louis Oosthuizen, on playing with Tiger Woods at the CA Championship


The airlines messing with your golf equipment. That’s not what you need when you have a tee time with Tiger Woods.

After a long flight from Johannesburg to Miami, South African Louis Oosthuizen stepped off the plane and learned that his golf clubs were missing.

Welcome to America. Enjoy your stay. Good luck playing with Tiger.

Ping was making up an extra set of clubs for the 25-year-old Oosthuizen just in case. What is his game plan for playing the Blue Monster with Tiger?

“I've got to focus on my game, because I’ll be looking at him the whole time,” Oosthuizen told The Associated Press. “I want to see how he handles himself, because that’s the level we all want to get to.”

I think we’ve heard this before.

Hope things come through for him. Sounds like he might have Deer In Headlights Syndrome.

Clubs are overrated. He'll be fine if he brings his muni foot wedge.

Josh: He did sound a bit that way. Just checked and he had 74 in the first round. He was doing OK but then doubled 15 and 17. (Must not have taken Tom's advice.)

A 74, huh? I wonder what score I'd card if I had the world's #1 player staring at me for 18 holes. 74 on the first 9, probably.

Probably good he didn't take my advice. I can't stand it when people do that. Especially when they're like Judge Smails about it.
