Louis Oosthuizen out with an eye infection
March 22, 2011

Louis Oosthuizen has withdrawn from this week’s Andalucian Open after suffering an eye infection.

“It’s disappointing because not only were we looking forward to seeing Louis return to defend but it was our chance to also congratulate him on then going on to win the British Open,” a tournament official told Reuters on Monday.

The South African’s withdrawal reduces the number of major champions teeing-up on the Parador Malaga course on Thursday to three; Jose Maria Olazabal, Paul Lawrie and Michael Campbell.

In-form Dane Thomas Bjorn, who won last month’s Qatar Masters, has also pulled out for unspecified reasons.

Oosthuizen endured a disappointing end to his breakthrough season last year, tearing ankle ligaments while on a hunting trip and missing seven weeks as the European Tour reached its climax.

He claimed his first victory since his British Open triumph at St Andrews last July when he won a three-way playoff to land the African Open in January.
