Pro golfer withdraws from tournament after freakish finger injury

Pro golfer withdraws from tournament after freakish finger injury

The 35-year-old South African will miss the co-sanctioned Sunshine Tour and European Tour event at the Randpark Golf Club after two of his fingers got jammed in an airport trolley.

Oosthuizen said he had hoped he would feel better by the time the event started, but that he still feels unable to compete and therefore has been forced to withdraw. "I had a goal of getting back in the top 20 by the end of the season, I needed a good week this week so, unfortunately, that's not going to happen". I was actually relieved there wasn't a pro-am because I thought the rest would help but this morning is even worse than it was yesterday.

Oosthuizen's weird injury, however, opens up the door for red-hot compatriot Dylan Frittelli, who won in Mauritius last week, to try and secure his place at the 2018 Masters at Augusta National.

Swift said that during the trial she leaned on fellow musician Kesha , who's faced a years-long legal battle with producer Dr. She said: "When the jury found in my favour, the man who sexually assaulted me was court-ordered to give me a symbolic $1".

Howell, who saw his 2017 campaign ruined by injury, played his first tournament of the 2018 schedule two weeks ago in Hong Kong, but missed the cut despite an improved second round.

Some of the biggest names from the three tours billed for the tournament include the Sunshine Tour's Louis Oosthuizen‚ former tournament champions Richard Sterne‚ Haydn Porteus and Darren Fichardt.

Oosthuizen speaks at a press conference on Wednesday.
