Louis Oosthuizen: Oosthuizen keeps thumb on MAJ in second round
In a brilliantly played match in today’s second round of the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Match Play Championship, Louis Oosthuizen defeated Miguel Angel Jiménez 2-up.
Oosthuizen scored bogey-free 7-under-par and still needed to play the 18th hole, which he birdied. The 51-year-old Spaniard was 4-under with five birdies and a bogey, but he didn’t own a lead at any time. Oosthuizen opened a 3-up lead by the fifth hole only to have Jiménez chip away and square it with a birdie-3 at the 16th hole. He gave it right back with a bogey-4 at 17. This eliminates Jiménez mathematically, but he’ll play Keegan Bradley (also 0-2) on Friday. Oosthuizen will go for a berth into the round of 16 in a third-round tilt against Bubba Watson (2-0).

Grace floored it at TPC Harding Park today. He opened eagle-birdie and never looked back, going 6-under on the match. Day drew within one at the turn, but bogeyed the par-4 11th. Grace picked off a win at the par-4 12th with birdie and closed it out with a par-4 at 15 where Day squared a 5. Although he’s 0-2, Day is obligated to play Zach Johnson in the third round on Friday. Grace (1-1) will face Charley Hoffman. Apr. 30 – 8:26 pm et
