Louis Oosthuizen was forced to withdraw from his home event Joburg Open after sustaining an injury at the airport that ruled him out of the tournament.

Oosthuizen, who was coming off successive top-10 finishes at the Nedbank Golf Challenge and Mauritius Open, was understandably one of the favourites to win the R16.5 million event, but he proposed compatriot Dylan Frittelli, the victor of the Indian Ocean island tournament last weekend, as a strong contender for the title at Randpark.

"I was so pleased when the pro-am on Tuesday was cancelled (because of heavy rain across Joburg) as I was able to get some rest, but the bad thing is the fingers were worse this morning".

The tournament at Randpark Golf Club starting on Thursday, was set to feature SA's top-ranked player, at 23rd in the world, but a freak incident left Oosthuizen with no choice but to withdraw.

"I'm probably going to go do an X-ray today", Oosthuizen said. "I had a goal of getting back in the top 20 by the end of the season, I needed a good week this week so, unfortunately, that's not going to happen".
