    Louis Oosthuizen continues to put in a remarkable display in the wake of a health issue but wants to kick on this weekend at the Nedbank Golf Challenge.

    The country’s No 1 wants his pre-first-round story of how he spent Wednesday in hospital due to kidney stones and was on his knees at 3am before his opening round, relegated to the past.

    He wants to win this coveted title.

    The 2010 Open Champion admits he did not feel at his best after firing a second-round 72 – with fatigue also playing its part – but is confident the worst is over as he goes in search of a first Rolex Series win.

    ‘Definitely more fatigued today, especially the last six, seven holes,’ he said. ‘The tee shot on the 14th, I hit it on the right side. I think it was more muscle-related than anything else.

    ‘The stones have passed, I just need to get some rest and play good tomorrow.

    ‘It was scruffy, I didn’t play great. It was tough, the wind was all over the place and I just didn’t hit the good shots. Hopefully tomorrow it’s a bit better.

    ‘There is holes where you can attack but there’s a lot of holes where you just need to respect them and just take par and go to the next hole.’
