South African golfer Louis Oosthuizen is a major winner. In 2010 he dominated the British Open at one of the world’s most famous golf courses, St. Andres, winning by a remarkable Tigeresque seven strokes.
Since that Open triumph, Oosthuizen always seems to be in the major championship picture, but he hasn’t yet claimed another trophy. He lost in a playoff at the 2012 Masters to Bubba Watson (the year he made a rare double-eagle in the final round) and in a 2015 Playoff to Zach Johnson in In fact, this week’s performance at the PGA Championship completed a unique accomplishment for Louis. With his second placed finish at Quail Hollow behind Justin Thomas, Oosthuizen has now completed a grand slam of second placed finishes in all four of the majors.
How did he mark the occasion? By lip syncing Andra Day’s Rise Up on an airplane.

That is simply amazing. Oosthuizen may not have won the tournament, but he won the hearts of social media with that post. I know who I’m rooting for at Augusta.
