Cape Town - SA's top ranked golfer Louis Oosthuizen was in a crooning mood following his performance in the PGA Tour's Tour Championship.

Oosthuizen, who was the sole South African in the 30-man field, ended 21st in the FedEx Cup standing at East Lake.

The 2010 Open Championship ended his stellar 2018/19 PGA Tour season and walked away with $478 000 (R7.3 million) for his efforts.

Shortly after his performance in Atlanta, Oosthuizen hopped on a flight and belted out 'Just an Illusion' from singer Julia Zahra, while sipping a cold beer.

The 36-year-old posted the video on Twitter saying, he was "fighting to win the FedEx Cup... but it was an illusion".

The video has gotten over 323 000 views on Twitter thus far.

Rory McIlroy won the Tour Championship, winning his second FedEx Cup title and claimed the $15 million jackpot.
