South African Louis Oosthuizen who last weekend won the British Open Golf Championship is in good shape going into the final round of the Nordea Scandanavian Masters to seal back to back victories on the European Tour . The Open champion started the third round two behind halfway leader Korean KJ Choi but defied cold winds and rain to post four birdies and join a three-way tie at the top of the leaderboard with 18 holes to play on Sunday . Oosthuizen was exhausted following his Open Championship success but is clearly in a tremendous vein of form and must be confident of making the Scandanavian Masters his third win of the season having also won the Andalucian Open earlier in the season . After completing his third round 70 Oosthuizen confirmed "I'm set on winning again and it will be up to me - a great achievement after winning last week." Bookmakers are certainly taking the threat seriously and Boylesports rate his chances at 9/4 with Choi favourite at 6/4 and Swede RS Johnson available at 4/1 to complete a popular local victory . Johnson will start the final round level with Oosthuizen on nine under par just one shot behind the leader .
