Golf: Oosthuizen shoots 66 to win Volvo Champions


DURBAN, South Africa (AP) - Louis Oosthuizen shot a final round six-under 66 to win the Volvo Champions from overnight leader Scott Jamieson of Scotland by a single stroke on Sunday.

Oosthuizen, a South Africa native, finished with a 16 under total of 272 at Durban Country Club to wrap up the victory after the Scot narrowly missed a chip on the 18th hole for eagle.

Jamieson, who led by five shots heading into the last day, carded a final-round 72, and missed out on second successive European Tour win in Durban by a solitary shot.

Thongchai Jaidee of Thailand (68) was another shot back in third, two strokes ahead of Ireland's Padraig Harrington in fourth.
