David Law seals Vic Open win with stunning eagle on final hole

David Law seals Vic Open win with stunning eagle on final hole

Scotland's David Law hit the greatest shot of his golfing career to claim a dramatic one-shot Vic Open triumph on Sunday over Australian duo Wade Ormsby and Brad Kennedy.

At the same time Ormsby, who had been solid off the tee all day, sent down a poor approach shot on the 17th and carded a double-bogey.

In the women's tournament, French golfer Celine Boutier has hung tough to claim a two-stroke victory.

In the women's tournament, which is also the second stop on the LPGA circuit, American Kim Kaufman clung on to a two-shot lead despite going three-over-par 75.

Had Ormsby been able to match Law's eagle on the final hole, he would have forced a playoff, but he could only manage a birdie.

South African Justin Harding finished fourth, a stroke further back on 16-under.

"Walking to the tenth I hit the reset button and tried to keep calm", said Law, who called a penalty on himself for a moving ball on the ninth which resulted in a bogey. Just missed some putts, but I know the difference in my feel of it, it's a little tentative, and how to deal with that. I couldn't have asked for an easier putt and luckily it dropped.

The market cap of the digital currency is now $12.42 billion and its trading volume over the past day is $3.19 billion. The world's largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization, bitcoin (BTC) is also flashing green.

Boutier, who played 25 events previous year, making 16 cuts, scored the biggest win of her career with rock solid par round of 72 to finish on eight-under for the tournament.

He tweeted: "The work we do @paullawriefound is not to raise golfers to win on tour but when one of our kids does win on tour which happened today it's an unbelievable feeling".

The victory represents a remarkable turnaround on the course for Law, who was on the brink of taking on other work over the winter before winning last season's SSE Scottish Hydro Challenge and finishing 14th on the Challenge Tour to earn a European Tour card. For me just being out here playing on the European Tour was enough.

"I've played a lot of golf in the wind so I actually like these types of conditions", said Stieger. I've been working so hard for this.

"Out there today, I felt in control of my emotions and my game". "I don't know, I don't think anybody would be sad that they won, so I'm going to fight for it". She was joined in second by fellow Australian Su Oh and 2019 LPGA Tour rookie Charlotte Thomas of England.

Kemp raced up the leaderboard with a spectacular seven-under 65, recovering after beginning her round with a double-bogey to sink nine birdies.
