Oosthuizen closing in on a Grand Slam of sorts


ST ANDREWS: Louis Oosthuizen is closing in on a career Grand Slam of sorts. For the third time in his career - and second time in a month - the South African was runner-up in a major championsh­ip. This time, it’s the British Open, where he lost to Zach Johnson in a playoff Monday evening. Oosthuizen took it right to the end, misreading putts on the final two holes - one from 5 feet, the other from 12 - that could have forced sudden death with Johnson. Oosthuizen has now finished second in every major except the PGA Championsh­ip.
