Oosthuizen in top form ahead of NGCon November 13, 2012
Oosthuizen lost a playoff to Italian sensation Matteo Manassero for the Singapore Open on Sunday.
After finishing tied for the lead with Manassero on a total of 271, both players birdied the first playoff hole – the par-five 18th – the first time. They both made pars the second time, and then Manassero won with an eagle on the third extra hole to Oosthuizen’s birdie.
Italian Francesco Molinari is also enjoying a good run into this year’s Nedbank Golf Challenge, having finished tied fifth in the Singapore Open.
The Nedbank Champions Challenge golfers are also peaking at the right time for their onslaught on Sun City, with Jay Haas, Fred Funk and Bernhard Langer all finishing in the top 6 in the recent Charles Schwab Cup Championship.
