Chubby Chandler: Big months ahead for Louis Oosthuizen and Matt Wallace
Article posted: 17 May 2017
Matt's win was a testimony to both his talent and dedication and I am convinced he will go on to bigger and better now that he has shown he can mix it with Europe's top professionals.
Louis Oosthuizen is one of those players you believe can win wherever and whenever he tees it up.
And although Louis had to eventually settle for runner up position at The Players Championship in Jacksonville, I am in no doubt that he will go one better very soon indeed.
Louis has a swing of seemingly effortless beauty and having jumped back into the top 20 thanks to his surge over the re-vamped Sawgrass course, it won't be long before he's a top tenner again.
The 2010 Open champion is what we refer to in golf as a proper player and that leads me to another, Matt Wallace.
The 27-year-old Englishman burst on to the scene last year when he won six times in total and five in a row on the Alps Tour to gain his Challenge Tour card.
Now, after just four starts, he has gained full European Tour playing rights for the rest of the season thanks to a weekend win in the Open de Portugal.
It was a testimony to both his talent and dedication and I am convinced he will go on to bigger and better now that he has shown he can mix it with Europe's top professionals.
We have players on the tee all over the world this week and I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if I am talking about another win for one or more of them next week.
