Scandinavian Masters – Oosthuizen close to record win

| 25.07.2010

Open champion Louis Oosthuizen is honing in on golf history, by winning on the European Tour within seven days of claiming the Claret Jug.

The South African was a shot behind the pace-makers after the third round of the Scandinavian Masters but is now in tied sixth on six under after letting three bogeys slip.

Ooshuizen is 3/1 second-favourite to win in Sweden and complete the unique double.

Richard S Johnson, playing in his home nation, is currently out on top on nine under after two bogeys and a birdie in his opening holes.

He leads by one and is 6/4 to win his first title of the year.

In a tightly-packed and quickly-changing leaderboard Nicolas Colsaerts, Rafa Echenique and KJ Choi are also in the hunt.

Belgian Colsaerts has little form to write of this season but is three under for his round and is 4/1 second-favourite.

Argentine Echenique is one under for his round and is 6/1 to nab the title. Both are tied second on eight under for the tournament.

South Korean Choi, who has 17 professional wins and was the overnight leader, has dropped three bogeys to sit on seven under in tied fourth. With his cool head and knack for finishing the job Choi is a good chance at 10/1 to come top again.

Englishman James Morrison is on a glorious round of five under and is in tied fourth with a 25/1 chance of victory.

Who will win in Sweden? Australian Mark Brown is seven under for the tournament and has a 16/1 chance of finishing first. See the full Scandinavian Masters betting market.
