Oosthuizen takes 1-shot lead, excavator in Durban

Tools

DURBAN, South Africa (AP) — Louis Oosthuizen made a long birdie putt at the final green to take a one-shot lead after the second round of the Volvo Champions — and swapped a car for an excavator to use on his South African farm.

Oosthuizen had an 8-under 64 Friday on a rain-softened Durban Country Club course for a 12-under 132 total, one shot ahead of Scotland's Scott Jamieson (64) and Thailand's Thongchai Jaidee (68).

By sinking the last putt, Oosthuizen's team won a pro-am event that awarded a car to the winners. However, the farming enthusiast talked to organizers and swapped the car for an excavator, which happened to be the prize for anyone who made a hole-in-one at the 15th.

Six others trail Thongchai and Jamieson by six shots.
