Louis Oosthuizen changes mentality for inaugural World Super 6 event

Innovative or too confusing? Golf's World Super 6 begins Thursday

The last two Lake Karrinyup CC champions may have an upper hand in terms of course knowledge, and the 2016 and 2014 ISPS HANDA Perth International winners Louis Oosthuizen and ThorBjorn Olesen will tee it up together on Thursday morning.

A new format for golf tournaments is being trialled in Perth tomorrow when the IPS HANDA World Super 6 gets under way.

Oosthuizen won the ISPS HANDA Perth International previous year however with the new format and tournament in place this time around, he'll be starting fresh like everyone else.

"I know you've had a lot of rain here and you can see it's a lot greener so it's definitely going to play different, but I'm looking forward to it". It will be played out once and if players remain tied, they will return to the new tee and one shot, nearest to the pin will decide the victor.

The Shootout hole will be played out once and if players remain tied, they will return to the new tee and continue to play from this tee until a victor is determined by stroke play.

"It's always nice coming to the same place, back to the same tournament defending the title".

Draymond Green says James Dolan has a 'slave master mentality'
A slave master mentality. "But now, all of a sudden, when he says something that he feels, it's a problem", he added. Oakley was arrested and charged with three misdemeanor counts of assault and one misdemeanor count of trespassing.


Any ties for 24th place will be decided by a play-off on the 18th hole at Lake Karrinyup, while the top eight qualifiers receive a bye in the first round of the six-hole match play contests.

The World Number 25 said his mental game will need to be sharp from round one in order to be in the finish on Sunday, reminding him of playing Tour School's early in his career.

'I think it will be a mindset thing this week, where you've got to realise that the stroke play is just a qualifier to get into Sunday.

He told the European Tour's website: "I think it's nice that we try new things and I think it's going to be nice for the crowds and nice for the TV viewers".

'If you finish top eight or top 10 it's just as good for a tour card and it's just a way of getting through the year. The 65 remaining players are vying to be in the low 24 that advance to Sunday match play. "I think anything where the crowd experiences a new way for us to play the game is good". You've got to have the same mindset of the last few holes in a tournament, otherwise you're out of here'. "I think we should work out more ways to do this".
