Louis Oosthuizen's new golf bag -- or is it?

It started with a wrong first name on a reserved parking space at the Players Championship last week. This week, Louis Oosthuizen is sporting a golf bag with the incorrect first name thanks to a gag by buddy Charl Schwartzel.

Before we get started, it should be noted that "Louis Oosthuizen" isn't the easiest name in golf to spell and it sure isn't the easiest to pronounce.

But, it's typically the last name that causes all the issues -- not the first.

Last week, my colleague Mark Aumann brought you the story of Oosthuizen's reserved parking space at TPC Sawgrass for the Players, which read "Larry Oosthuizen."

A good sport, it was Oosthuizen himself who tweeted about the error:

 

 

This week, Oosthuizen and good friend and fellow South African Charl Schwartzel are both playing in the HP Byron Nelson Championship. Schwartzel, it appears, decided to have a little fun at his buddy's expense in light of what happened last week.

Oosthuizen tweeted this moments ago:

 

 

Nice prank by Schwartzel (yeah, he doesn't have the easiest name to spell either).

Louis? Larry? Call him whatever you'd like, as long as you remember him as the 2010 Open Champion.
