Mercedes-Benz and Louis Oosthuizen share the same passion.
Mercedes-Benz South Africa supports the winner of the Open Championship 2010 on his continuing path of success as well as with his Junior Golf Academy. With the academy, the South African golfer wishes to teach golf to disadvantaged schoolchildren. “I’m proud that, as a brand ambassador, I’m now a part of the Mercedes-Benz family. I’m also glad that I can work together with a brand which has provided exemplary support to this sport for the last 30 years. The brand’s love of the game is just as immense as mine!” affirmed Louis Oosthuizen. The South African golfer’s professional career began at the age of 19. He won his first competition in 2010 at the European Tour, the Open de Andalucía de Golf. In the same year, he also celebrated his first triumph at a Major tournament: at the 139th Open Championship, which was played on the Old Course of St. Andrews. Here he really shone, leading by seven strokes.
