Louis Oosthuizen made it back-to-back wins on the DP World Tour thanks to a two-shot victory at the Mauritius Open.

The 41-year-old South African, who won his first DP World title in five years in last weeks Alfred Dunhill Championship, made it two wins in two after closing with a final-round 69 to finish on 17-under, two shots clear of England’s Laurie Canter.

Ossthuizen began the final day at the new La Reserve Golf Club with a one-shot advantage however bogeys on the fourth and fifth meant his lead was wiped and was two over. But he regained his composure by hitting six birdies to overcome the rest of the competition and claim his 11th career DP World Tour title.

“Coming here it felt like a bit of a home play because I was co-designer on the course, but the last two weeks have been really special and I hope I can repeat it in the future,” Oosthuizen said.

“The golf course was fresh and new, but still had its teeth and showed a lot of good holes out there. To get it ready for the tournament was an unbelievable effort by everyone.”

There was a three way tie for third featuring Sweden’s Sebastian Soederberg, England’s Daniel Brown and South Africa’s Jacques P. de Villiers also ending the tournament on 14 under.

This victory means that LIV Golfers have had the most success so far in the DP World Tour season with five out of the first six tournaments won by LIV players.

The next event on the DP World Tour schedule is the Dubai Invitational taking place between 11-14 Jan at Dubai Creek Resort.
