EAST LAKE HISTORY: This is Oosthuizen's first appearance at East Lake. ALBERS’ QUICK TAKE: Fred Albers, on-course correspondent for SiriusXM PGA TOUR Radio, provides a quick look at Oosthuizen: When you watch him play, you wonder why he doesn't win more often. His swing is so good, he chips and putts well. I thought he made a mistake on the back nine Sunday at Deutsche Bank when he did not put the tournament away, allowing McIlroy an opening on Monday.
