Oosthuizen to miss up to two months with various injuries

July 30, 2013

JUPITER, Fla. (AP) -- Louis Oosthuizen will take two months away from golf to let a series of injuries heal.

Oosthuizen had to withdraw from the U.S. Open and the Open Championship Open because of injuries to his neck, back and hip. He will miss the World-Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational this week and the PGA Championship next week at Oak Hill.

The 2010 British Open champion is treating the injuries with rest and strengthening exercises. He hopes to return at the Dunhill Links Championship in Scotland at the end of September.

Oosthuizen is No. 147 in the FedExCup standings on the PGA TOUR and was well outside the bubble for the four FedExCup Playoffs events.
