Louis Oosthuizen won his second straight Volvo Golf Champions in South Africa by making birdies on the last two holes on Sunday to beat Branden Grace by one stroke.

The win is especially satisfying for Oosthuizen who missed most of the end of 2013 with a back and neck injury.

"I haven't really played well last year with all the injuries so hopefully I can build from here on and just go better next time," said Oosthuizen in the Guardian.

"It's still not 100 percent. Luckily this week I didn't have to hit a lot of drivers, but once I get to Augusta I need to hit driver."

It's good to see the South African defend in his home country. Golf is better when he's playing great and it would appear he's nearly back to his former British Open-winning self.
