Louis Oosthuizen won two DP World Tour titles in a row by beating Laurie Canter, another golfer from LIV Golf. He secured a two-shot victory at the AfrAsia Bank Mauritius Open. Although many expected that Oosthuizen would immediately express his delight with the victory, this great golfer was primarily surprised by what golf can bring. Although he hasn't played much lately, Oosthuizen showed his class. Louis trained and gave special focus to certain details. He caught the momentum and is happy because of it.
 
"Golf is the strangest thing. The last five weeks I've not done a lot with golf, I've played a few rounds, and when I got to Leopard Creek I was working on a small little thing. I started hitting it really good - and I know I'm putting well - and then I just carried on with that momentum."- he said, as quoted by golfmonthly.com!

Louis was not happy with how he started. Despite everything, he believed in himself and knew that one momentum could change things.

"I started off very poorly, and that errant second shot on 16 made it interesting, but I hit a few good shots coming in... I'm glad I held onto it."

Louis Oosthuizen: I'm glad I could pull this off this week

Oosthuizen was one of those who helped design the golf course on which he won.

"I'm glad I could pull this off this week, it's sort of a dream come true being able to play a tournament on a golf course you helped design and end up winning it."

In addition, the South African is happy that his daughter was there to see her father achieve an important victory. He highly values her support; it means a lot to him.

"This is the first event my daughters have been to where I won, so this is very special."
