Former Open champion Louis Oosthuizen wins again (!) on DP World Tour

Louis Oosthuizen completed a two-shot victory over England's Laurie Canter at the Mauritius Open to claim his second title on the DP World Tour in six days. 

The South African, who now plies his trade predominantly in the LIV Golf League, claimed the Alfred Dunhill Championship in his homeland last week. 

It represented his first win in five years. His hot streak continued at Heritage La Réserve Golf Club this week. 

Oosthuizen's rounds of 68, 69, 65 and 69 saw him reach a winning score of 17-under. 

The South African entered round four with a one-shot lead but soon saw that disappear as playing partner Jacques P de Villiers, England's Canter and the charging Sebastian Söderberg all staked a claim.

It was tense over a dramatic back nine in the Indian Ocean but in the end Oosthuizen's 69 was enough to hand him the win and the first place prize of €185,672.44

South African de Villiers, Swede Söderberg - who carded the lowest round of the day with a 63 - and Englnd's Daniel Brown finished at 14 under, one clear of South Africa's Jayden Schaper.

Oosthuizen's victory also saw Min Woo Lee crowned the winner of the Opening Swing, handing the Australian $200,000 and a place in the second part of the DP World Tour season - the Back 9.
