Louis Oosthuizen: 'I'll learn from playoff loss'

Louis Oosthuizen says that he will learn from his playoff defeat to Zach Johnson at The Open.

Louis Oosthuizen has said that he will learn from his playoff loss to Zach Johnson at The Open.

Oosthuizen finished tied for the lead with Johnson and Marc Leishman, but was beaten by one shot in a four-hole playoff.

"I think I did really well getting in the playoff. I had four three-putts today," Oosthuizen told Sky Sports News. "It's never nice to lose a playoff. I've had the experience in 2012 at Augusta.

"You feel like you've got a really good chance of winning, rather [than] doing it during the tournament or in the fourth round.

"But I'll take a lot out of this week. I was really motivated to win this championship this week. I love this place. I've said it a thousand times. I can't wait for it to come back here again."

Oosthuizen won The Open at St Andrews in 2010.
