Freak airport injury forces Louis Oosthuizen to pull out of European Tour event

Joburg Open golf tournament numbers grow

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.

Although some rain fell Thursday at the suburban club, there was no threat of play being suspended or abandoned for the 240 competitors. The back nine was more sedate, with birdies coming at 15 and 18, but he kept bogey off the card.

Ten players were a further shot back at six-under, two off the lead, including South African Dean Burmester, who went round the Firethorn course - which will be used exclusively for the final two rounds on the weekend - in 66 blows.

"I don't know what to say".

Among the six players tied for second place were Jared Harvey, Ockie Strydom and Erik van Rooyen - all South Africans. "I'm obviously very happy and pleased", he said.

"I was really looking forward to playing in the Joburg Open for the first time so I'm very frustrated".

Davidse excelled at the par fives, claiming birdies at all three, Another five birdies came at par fours with one at a par three.

The 35-year-old jammed his fingers in an airport trolley on his way to Johannesburg, and on Wednesday was still unable to grip a golf club with his swollen fingers.

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.
