Louis Oosthuizen clinched his 10th DP World Tour title with a two-shot triumph at the Alfred Dunhill Championship, marking his first tour victory in five years. The competition, held at Leopard Creek Country Club in Mpumalanga, South Africa, faced a temporary halt on Sunday due to heavy rain and lightning concerns.

Resuming the final round on Monday, Oosthuizen surged ahead of compatriot Charl Schwartzel to secure the win with a total score of 18 under. Despite a tense conclusion, the 2010 Open champion held his nerve. Oosthuizen encountered a bogey on the 17th hole and faced water trouble on the par-five 18th, but he impressively sank a putt from over 20 feet for par, carding a three-under 69. Schwartzel finished with consecutive pars, posting a 71.



Expressing his satisfaction, Oosthuizen, a participant in the LIV Golf tour, stated, "This is a tournament that I really wanted. It took me a while. It's always a great place coming back to. I wouldn't say 18 was kind to me this time, but I managed it a little bit, maybe not on the last hole there but I got it through."

Securing third place at 14 under was South African Christiaan Bezuidenhout, while England's Marco Penge shared the fourth spot with Germany's Matti Schmid and Dutchman Darius van Driel. Oosthuizen's triumphant return to the winner's circle adds a significant chapter to his golfing journey, marked by resilience and skill.
