South African golfer Louis Oosthuizen achieved a remarkable feat by clinching consecutive victories on the DP World Tour, securing a two-shot win at the Mauritius Open held at the newly designed La Reserve Golf Club. Notably, Oosthuizen played an integral role in the design of this course, adding an extra layer of significance to his triumph.

The 41-year-old golfer's recent success follows his win at the Alfred Dunhill Championship at Leopard Creek just a week prior, marking his first tournament victory in five years. Reflecting on his achievement, Oosthuizen expressed his satisfaction, stating, "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 a testament to the unpredictable nature of golf, Oosthuizen revealed that in the last five weeks, he hadn't devoted much time to the sport. However, a subtle adjustment in his approach and a surge in momentum at Leopard Creek set the stage for his exceptional performance at the La Reserve Golf Club.



Despite facing early setbacks with bogeys on the fourth and fifth holes during the final round, Oosthuizen showcased resilience, regaining his rhythm and tallying six birdies, including a crucial one on the par-five last hole. His final-round score of 69 secured a two-shot lead over England's Laurie Canter.

The podium also featured England's Daniel Brown, who finished one shot behind Canter, alongside Swede Sebastian Soderberg and South African Jacques P de Villiers. Oosthuizen's victory adds to the dominance of players from LIV Golf, who have now claimed victory in five of the first six events in the new DP World Tour season.

Louis Oosthuizen's back-to-back triumphs not only underscore his prowess on the golf course but also highlight the unique joy of winning on a course he had a hand in designing. As the DP World Tour season unfolds, golf enthusiasts eagerly anticipate further displays of skill and determination from this seasoned South African champion.
