South African golfer Louis Oosthuizen came menacingly close to winning the US PGA Championship at the Quail Hollow on Sunday, only to see Justin Thomas outshine him in the penultimate stages.
Despite not securing the highest honour, Oosthuizen still managed to finish tied second alongside Francesco Molinari and Patrick Reed.
But, finishing as the runner-up did not dampen his spirit, as the 34-year-old made a 47-second long video that has gone viral after the PGA Championship tournament.
He took to social media and posted on Twitter a lip-syncing video of himself singing to American singer and songwriter Andra Day’s song ‘I’ll rise up’.
The video received over 8,000 retweets as well as more than 19,000 likes with the golf fraternity and fans across the globe all taken by surprise.
They were taken aback more so because Oosthuizen is known to be one of the most reserved individuals among the tour pros and does not show much emotion, but it was hilarious nonetheless.
The video impressed many, with even Kevin Kisher commenting 'Too Good’ and ‘No topping that tonight, that was world class’.
Finishing the tournament in second place, Oosthuizen now holds the distinction of being the runner-up in all four Majors: 2012 Masters Tournament, 2015 US Open, 2015 Open Championship, and 2017 PGA Championship.
A pragmatic in nature, Oosthuizen’s attitude and commitment on the course has already been praised by his peers and with the revelation of his latest talent, he surely has shocked many.
The video is more symbolic as he proclaims the result would not decrease the enthusiasm he has for the sport and will make a sensational comeback to secure more accolades in the months ahead.
Although incredible with the golf club in hand, the South African ace could also eye a career in entertainment after his golf adventure.
It is certain he would find a fan or two for his expertise on the mic on the back of the lip-sync video.
