Louis Oosthuizen completed a solid start to his new PGA Tour season on Sunday with a closing three-under-par 68 in the Shriners Children’s Open in Las Vegas to finish in a share of 14th place.

He made five birdies and two bogeys to move to 15-under-par for the week, and, although he slipped outside the top 10 in the field for the first time during the week, he was in contention throughout. The tournament was grabbed by the scruff of the neck in the final round by Korea’s Sungjae Im who closed with a nine-under 62 to move to 24-under and four strokes clear of runner-up Matthew Wolff.

Former South African Rory Sabbatini, the Slovakian Olympic silver medallist, also had a great week. His closing 64 took him into a share of third at 19-under-par.

Garrick Higgo, Dylan Frittelli, Charl Schwarztel and Erik van Rooyen all missed the cut.
