Louis Oosthuizen withdraws from The RSM Classic with back injury

At No. 9 in the world, he was the highest-ranked player at Sea Island

    Written by Staff

    Louis Oosthuizen, the highest-ranked player at The RSM Classic, withdrew Friday morning with a lower-back injury.

    On Thursday, Oosthuizen made birdie on three of his final five holes to salvage a 1-under 69 on Sea Island’s Seaside Course. He was scheduled to start the second round at 10:50 a.m. Friday on the Plantation Course alongside Max Homa and Scottie Scheffler in one of the day’s featured groups.

    Oosthuizen, who has a history of back trouble, is No. 9 in the world after a 2021 season that included four runners-up and two third-place finishes. He finished second in this year’s PGA Championship and U.S. Open and T3 in The Open.
