Seventh Heaven
This was only the ninth major that South African Louis Oosthuizen has played in and the 27-year-old has missed the cut in seven of them. But seven turned into the key number for the player who goes by the nickname of "Shrek," as that was his margin of victory over the rest of the field. As a result of his shock win — British bookmakers were offering odds of 250/1 beforehand — Oosthuizen has shot up from 54th to 15th in the world rankings.
