Oosthuizen, who was coming off successive top-10 finishes at the Nedbank Golf Challenge and Mauritius Open, was understandably one of the favourites to win the R16.5 million event, but he proposed compatriot Dylan Frittelli, the victor of the Indian Ocean island tournament last weekend, as a strong contender for the title at Randpark.
"I played here as a junior‚" he said. I have a friend who is a member‚ so I played a round with him on the Firethorn course.
"I didn't play as many tournaments as I usually do past year with family issues".
"It depends on the golf course".
The remaining 65 players‚ including ties‚ proceed to the final two rounds‚ which will be played on Saturday and Sunday.
"In fact‚ I didn't have a bad season previous year". All those Rolex events, 36-holes before a Thursday.
"I don't know Bushwillow‚ so I'll have to check that out blind tomorrow".
"I was really looking forward to playing this week". I'm just out here to have fun.

Road Wars police officer dies in motorcycle crash
The driver of the vehicle, a woman, was also injured in the incident and has been taken to hospital for treatment. A 91-year-old female passenger in the auto also died in the crash while the female driver was taken to hospital.
"I think some guys maybe lean too much on being familiar with the golf course but for me, if I walk on to that first tee and I'm feeling fresh, ready to go".
Davidse, and all the men at seven-under, started the tournament on the Bushwillow course at Randpark - which is considered to be easier than the Firethorn course - but he said he still had to hit the ball well and make the putts. "I've got faith in my caddie, I've got faith in the yardage book and everything is in front of me, I can do it".
"Yeah, that one was going a bit insane on social media", he laughed.
"So‚ it's totally changed since the last time I played it".
Louis Oosthuizen won't be playing in this week's European Tour event, and the South African golfer has a freak injury to thank.
He's also the only player who is already exempt into the 147th Open Championship at Carnoustie next July.
Another annual initiative is the hosting of the Joburg Open Golf Development Clinic, during which 10 pro golfers will share their knowledge with the youth from communities such as Alexandra and Eldorado Park.
