Louis Trades Pro-Am Prize For An Excavator

An unbylined AP story says Louis Oosthuizen negotiated a swap of the car his pro-am group won for a ahole-in-one excavator to use on his South African farm.

Yes, that's right, they had an excavator for a hole-in-one!

“I’ve been nagging my wife for a few years that I want something on the farm, as there are a few stumps and things I need to get rid of,” he said.

“And that’s why I stood over that putt on 18 for a bit longer than normal. So I’m going to play around with it and might dig out a few bunkers.”

That is awesome!

Having said that, since he's The Open Champion and all, why's he letting anyone tell him what he can and can't buy for the farm? Surely funds aren't lacking....

The best wedge ever - so good for getting out of bunkers!

I have some Pro Shop credits from last year. I think I'll ask the Pro if I can get a snowblower.

Good for Louis, he probably has to pay taxes whether car or excavator so might as well get the equipment he needs.

I have a leafblower, but snow is not a problem down here.

\If yo have not seen the last round of this event (repeating right now [10 am CT] and I believe it repeats on Monday or Tuesday, it has a pretty exciting finish. I'll leave(blower?) it at that.

The South Africans have been tearing it up. I keep wondering when Grace will win something big(ger)

Hell be able to dig some pretty good bunkers on his ranch property with that!

Hopefully Oosthuizen doesn't go all twitter on us and constantly blather on about his excavators and back end loaders - a la Poulter and his endless stream of Ferraris.
