SHANGHAI :Louis Oosthuizen hasn`t been doing much of a victory lap since winning the British Open at St. Andrews.

For about the last two months, he has barely been able to walk. Oosthuizen is playing for the first time in about two months as he recovers from a freak ankle injury while hunting in South Africa.

It is still bothering him, but a 3-under 69 on Thursday at the HSBC Champions took away some of the sting. "My first round back .

it didn`t feel too great, the ankle," Oosthuizen said. "I thought if I walk off close to level par .

it would be satisfying.".
