Tribute to Els

Oosthuizen became a member of the Ernie Els and Fancourt Foundation in the year of its inception, 1999. The Foundation’s mission is “To identify talented young South Africans from families of limited resources and provide them with educational assistance and playing opportunities in order to produce successful young leaders and golfers.”
With his win, Oosthuizen became the first Foundation member to win on the European Tour, making Els a happy man.
