    Oosthuizen soars into contention

    On Sunday Louis Oosthuizen shot 64 at TPC Boston, which included four birdies in a row on the front side, to move into a share of seventh place at the Deutsche Bank championship.

    ‘King Louis’ got the putter working and kept a clean sheet, thereby moving to nine under par for the tournament, six strokes behind 54-hole leader Paul Casey.

    Oosthuizen has built a reputation for surfacing on the biggest stages, and this week’s tournament is no exception. It’s the second of four Playoffs tournaments that close out the PGA Tour season.

    The top 70 in FedEx Cup points (earned throughout the season) will progress to next week’s BMW Championship, and Oosthuizen currently ranks 44th.

    A primary interest for Compleat Golfer’s Playing Editor is his world ranking. This week the top 10 players on earth are competing, which boosts the value of the tournament.

    Not only are there huge FedEx Cup and World Ranking points available, but also an $8,5-million prize fund. The culmination of the season brings out the best, who are playing for the best, and that’s Oosthuizen’s happy place. Expect him to take a crack at victory in the final round.
