Golf: Injured Oosthuizen out of Open


South Africa's Louis Oosthuizen withdrew from the British Open after nine holes of the first round at Muirfield on Thursday with what appeared to be a leg injury.

The 2010 Open champion at St Andrews was playing with Tiger Woods and Graeme McDowell and was four over when he shook hands with his partners and called for a buggy to take him back to the clubhouse.

It was the second straight major that Oosthuizen has failed to finish having withdrawn before the second round of the US Open at Merion Golf Club last month with a strained hip flexor.
