Louis Oosthuizen has been one of the best golfers casual fans might not know for over a decade now.
While Oosthuizen has been a good golfer on both the PGA Tour and the European Tour, the 34-year-old only has nine career wins on the two Tours combined and just one major championship, the 2010 Open Championship.
Oosthuizen does have a tendency to come close though, especially in majors, and at the PGA Championship he found himself once again just short of bringing home the trophy, tied for second two strokes behind champion Justin Thomas.
Notably, the result meant that Oosthuizen had completed his own unfortunate career ‘Grand Slam’ — he has finished second in all four major golf tournaments.
While one might imagine it’d be tough to be so close, yet so far from one of the most iconic accomplishments in your sport, Oosthuizen took the result in stride, posting a beautiful, and honestly quite moving lip-sync rendition of “Rise Up” by Andra Day to his Twitter account following his latest runner-up finish.
It’s no surprise that Oosthuizen would have a good attitude about his “always the bridesmaid” finishes — he does have one major win to his name and he’s made over $US15 million in tournament winnings alone over the course of his career.
Currently at 33rd in the FedEx Cup rankings, chances are he’ll be back on a leaderboard near you soon.
