South Africa's Louis Oosthuizen carded a 67 at the final round of the 2010 Open de Andalucia. He established a winning three-stroke lead over the chasing pack at the Parador Malaga Golf course on Sunday.
Louis Oosthuizen of South Africa poses with his trophy after winning the Andalucia Open golf tournament in Malaga, southern Spain, March 28, 2010.
The South African began the day with a narrow one-stroke lead over the chasing pack and found five birdies and two bogeys in a closing round of 67. With a 17-under-par total of 263, Oosthuizen claimed his maiden European Tour win by the impressive margin of three strokes. The win allows the 27-year-old to grab a place in the top 50 of the world rankings and a highly coveted place at next month's Masters at Augusta.
After starting day four in joint fourth , Richard Finch recovered and headed into the clubhouse with a final round of 68 to gain a share of second place.
Finch finished the tournament alongside Scotland's Peter Whiteford, who enjoyed a strong finish by bringing home a fourth round score of 66.
Defending champion Soren Kjeldsen's hopes of claiming back-to-back wins ultimately went unfulfilled. He finished in a share of sixth place at 11 under.
