Louis Oosthuizen has been a professional golfer since 2002, but is still only 32 years old.

The 2010 British Open winner hails from South Africa. He was born in Mossel Bay, which is on the Southern Cape of the country in the Western Cape Province.

If you know golf, you know some of the PGA’s best were South African.

Ernie Els is known as “The Big Easy.” In his prime, Retief Goosen was as cool on the course as they came. There’s also Charl Schwartzel, the 2011 Masters winner, and Branden Grace.

And what about Gary Player? Smooth and clutch as can be.

Oosthuizen appears to have been cut from the same mold.

His name is always near the top of the leaderboard in big events like majors or World Golf Championship tournaments.

Get used to it, Oosthuizen doesn’t appear to be going anywhere.
