No Masters hangover as Oosthuizen wins

US Masters runner-up Louis Oosthuizen eased the misery of the previous week's play-off loss with a commanding three-shot victor at the Maybank Malaysian Open yesterday on Kuala Lumpur Golf and Country Club's West Course.

The 2010 British Open champion said the win was just the tonic he needed after his heart-breaking loss to Bubba Watson at Augusta.

"I felt it was important for me to put up a good fight this week. Last week was tough - it takes a bit out of you. I knew I had to keep focused and not just plod along, and I did that very well," he said.

"This means a lot. I've been playing well for a while now. I finished third in Houston, second last week and a win here so it's definitely a great confidence boost for the season."

The South African completed a 3-under 69 in the rain-delayed third round, then closed with a 68 for a three-stroke victory over Scotland's Stephen Gallacher.

Gallacher shot a 70. American David Lipsky also closed with a 70 to tie for third at 12 under with Spain's Rafael Cabrera-Bello and England's Danny Willett. Cabrera-Bello and Willett shot 71.

The tournament was sanctioned by the European and Asian tours.
