Open champion buys new vehicle

10:19 am on 22 July 2010

British Open golf champion Louis Oosthuizen has shunned the glamour of a new Ferrari or Porsche and instead spent some of his 2.1 million dollar winnings on a custom-built tractor.

Speaking ahead of this week's Scandinavian Masters in Sweden, the 27-year-old South African says it was something he's always wanted.....

Oosthuizen, who won at St Andrews by seven strokes, also enjoyed another concession to his new-found fame and riches.... flying in by private jet.
