Louis Oosthuizen won the British Open, easily, eagling on the ninth hole en route to his first major title.

Louis, Louis, Louis, how sweet it is!

Oosthuizen played great on all four days for an amazing victory.

He will be seen in many events coming, as his invites fill up his inbox.

The U.S. players did not fare as well across the pond on this trip.

The best U.S. player this week was Dustin Johnson at minus five and tied for 11th place.

Welcome to the Fed Ex Cup race and a chance for 10 million more, lucky Louis.

Although that was no luck this week, as he decimated the field.

Second went to Westwood, hopefully, as he is one of my fantasy golfers this week.

My fantasy team of Woods, Westwood, Goosen, and Rose did fairly well, gaining more points on the last expert I have to pass.

We will head for the RBC Canadian Open next week, in Canada of course.

St. George's Golf and Country Club in Etobiooke, Ontario will host this event.

Last year's defending champion is Nathan Green, who seems quiet this season.

In the end, it was a five way tie for second between Westwood, McElroy, Kaymer, Stenson, and Casey at the British Open.

Once again a great job by the unknown Louis Oosthuizen, whose name I have learned to spell quickly.
