Cape Town - South African Louis Oosthuizen has moved up three places in the latest world rankings after a solid Masters showing.

The 35-year-old finished in a tie for 12th at Augusta on Sunday, nine shots behind eventual winner Patrick Reed, and that return was enough to see him move up from 31st to 28th in the latest rankings.
