Oosthuizen's freak injury opens Major door for Frittelli

Oosthuizen's freak injury opens Major door for Frittelli

Fichardt finished 68th on the European tour's Race to Dubai in the 2017 season, and is looking forward to using the South African events - the Joburg Open, the SA Open and the Tshwane Open - to kick-start his 2018 season.

While traveling to Johannesburg for his home country's Joburg Open, he sustained a freaky injury in an airport that later prompted him to withdraw from the event.

"I didn't play as many tournaments as I usually do past year, with family issues".

Oosthuizen said he hopes the injury is not too serious. "So I'm looking forward to playing a lot more than I did previous year". He is now backing last week's victor in Mauritius, Frittelli, as the man to beat around the Firethorn and Bushwillow courses at the Randpark club.

"The body feels great but I had a different incident this week with jamming my fingers in trolleys at the airport", said Oosthuizen, who was the highest ranked player in the field.

The other South African to look out for in the tournament is Dylan Frittelli, who has never played at Bushwillow before.

Oosthuizen was coming off two top-10 finishes.

"I was so pleased when the pro-am on Tuesday was cancelled (because of heavy rain across Joburg) as I was able to get some rest, but the bad thing is the fingers were worse this morning".

"I'm probably going to go do an X-ray today", Oosthuizen added.

The field is, as expected, dominated by South African players and includes the likes of Mauritius victor Dylan Frittelli, George Coetzee, Haydn Porteous and Darren Fichardt.
