Oosthuizen's airport finger mishap rules

him out of Joburg Open

It is safe to say that most of us will have had a frustrating time at an airport at some time in their life but it is not a delay or a lost piece of luggage that has ruined Louis Oosthuizen's week.
The South African was set to tee it up at the Joburg Open in good spirits following a closing round of 67 at the Afrasia Bank Mauritius Open that had him in contention on Sunday and ultimately sealed him a tie for seventh.
The World Number 23 was aiming for a good week to get himself back into the top 20 in the Official World Golf Ranking but disaster struck on Monday when he got his finger jammed in a luggage trolley at the airport.
The subsequent swelling has left the 2010 Open Championship winner unable to properly grip a club so he has been forced to withdraw from the event at Randpark Golf Club, with even the extra day's rest available due to the cancellation of Tuesday's pro-am not enough to help.
