Classy Louis grabs big WGC lead
02 November 2012, 16:15
China - Louis Oosthuizen picked up six shots in just five holes on the way to a red-hot 63 and a big five-stroke lead in the $7 million WGC-HSBC Champions on Friday, Supersport reports.
An eagle on the par-five seventh sparked a blazing run from the 2010 British Open winner, who birdied his next four along with 15 and 16 for a nine-under-par round and a total of 16-under 128 at southern China's par-72 Mission Hills.
Oosthuizen's round, blotted only by an early bogey on the second, opened up a healthy advantage over a top-quality chasing pack led by Adam Scott and Ernie Els, who were tied on 11 under par.
