Louis Buys A Tractor
By Kickntrue on 7/22/10
Louis Oosthuizen... you've just won the British Open! What are you going to do now?! "Umm... Buy a tractor?"
He enjoyed flying into Sweden in a private jet, but his modesty is summed up by the fact that his one big luxury so far is not to buy an expensive car or yacht, but a tractor for his farm. "Being a farm boy, it was one of my big dreams and I got a nice John Deere tractor," said Oosthuizen. "I made sure that there is space for my little daughter in her car seat next to me, so, yeah, we are going to have a lot of fun in it."I can't blame the dude for being conservative with his money. There is a chance his Open Championship payday will be the biggest of his career and could very well be a substantial percentage of his lifetime earnings. Stil... a tractor?! I mean.. I get the farmer thing, I really do (I grew up on 35 acres) but at least get a cool piece of farm equipment. I'd go for a Gator, souped up for top-end speed, but if he was really looking to drop some dough on something fun- you've got to go Combine! Then you're daughter can sit with you in the cockpit and just run over crap and shooting it out the back!

I guess next time I make $1.3M in a weekend I'll have to show him how to do it!

Update- He may be able to buy more than a tractor if he proves the Open was a coming out party and not a fluke. Four days later- and leading after day 1 of the Scandinavian Open - Round 1 Leader

He should make sure his Deere has Bluetooth. Everything's better with Bluetooth. :)
