Louis Oosthuizen has confirmed he will challenge for the Barclays Singapore Open title once again - 12 months after finishing third.

Oosthuizen, the 2010 Open champion, missed an eagle putt on the last which would have seen him make the sudden-death play-off for the $1million top prize - with Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano going on to edge out Juvic Pagunsan.

"I certainly remember the three wood I hit into the last there, to about 10 feet, to give myself an opportunity to make the play-off, but I just missed the putt," said world No 12 Oosthuizen. "Hopefully this year will be different.

"It's a good track (Serapong Course). It's a really good golf course and the greens are nice.

"I'm really looking forward to it. I know it's only the one golf course this year, so that's good too."

Oosthuizen will be joined at the event - which runs from November 8-11 - by the likes of fellow Major champions Padraig Harrington and Michael Campbell.
