Louis Oosthuizen has revealed that his performance at the US Open has boosted his confidence ahead of The Open.
The South African overcame a poor start to finish in a tie for second place at Chambers Bay, and the South African has admitted that the display came at the right time ahead of his return to St Andrews, where he won his only Major title in 2010.
The 32-year-old is quoted by The AP as saying: "I had a bit of a glimpse of my best form on the last three rounds at Chambers Bay, and that really got me motivated to this week.
"It gives me the confidence knowing what I've done here and that I can play this golf course."
Oosthuizen is currently number 17 in the world golf rankings.
