Louis Oosthuizen has added another entry to the list of bizarre sporting injuries

The golfer will miss this week’s Joburg Open.

A BIZARRE INJURY suffered in an airport has ruled Louis Oosthuizen out of this week’s Joburg Open.

Former Open champion Oosthuizen was expected to head the field at Royal Johannesburg and Kensington Golf Club but he will play no part.

The Sunshine Tour, one of three sanctioning bodies for the event, confirmed that Oosthuizen had trapped his fingers in an airport trolley and was unable to grip his clubs.

Home fans will have plenty of South African stars to cheer on, however, including reigning champion Darren Fichardt, former winners George Coetzee and Haydn Porteous, as well as Dylan Frittelli, seeking successive wins after taking the Mauritius Open title last week.
