Law eagles 18th to win Vic Open

Law eagles 18th to win Vic Open”

Under sunny Australian skies and with throngs of fans circling the green, France's Celine Boutier knocked in a two-putt par at No. 18 and earned her first LPGA Tour victory at the 2019 ISPS Handa Vic Open.

Law overturned a three shot deficit in the final few holes, birdieing the 16th before draining an eight-footer on the par-5 last to win on 18 under.

Law: "It's not something I expected".

"At the beginning, I was just super nervous, stressed and anxious, and I kept missing cuts", says the 25-year-old, only the second Duke graduate to win on the LPGA Tour (joining Brittany Lang), and the fourth golfer from France (but first since 2003).

It was a day of firsts in the final round of the Vic Open at 13th Beach Golf Links on the Bellarine Peninsula near Melbourne with the men's victor, David Law, and the victor of the women's event, Celine Boutier, both winning for the first time on their respective tours.

Ormsby chipped in on the fifth to pull a shot back and gained another on the ninth to get back to par for the round before gains on the 13th and 18th holes gave him the outright lead.

The Vic Open at Barwon Heads in Victoria was a joint venture between the European and LPGA Tours, with the men and women playing two separate tournaments at the same time, for the same prize money, albeit with the women using different tees.

"I've been loving the four events I've played so far and to just be a European Tour player was what I was happy with".

Australians Sarah Kemp (65) and Su Oh (74) and England's Charlotte Thomas (69) have tied for second on 283.

On the course, things took a turn for the better a year later with a first win on the Challenge Tour in his native land. I'll go home, reflect a little bit on things and reassess. Then birdie 16, par 17, and going down the last we said we need eagle.

Brad Kennedy finished at 17 under alongside Ormsby, one shot clear of South Africa's Justin Harding.

"Then standing on the 18th fairway, we knew that if you make an eagle, you put a bit of pressure on". In the event of a tie in total top-10 finishes, the award will go to the player with the most official wins, followed by most second-place finishes, third-place finishes, etc., until the tie is broken.

"It's been something I've been working toward since I turned pro and I just feel like it just happened", said Boutier, who now makes her home in Dallas, Texas.
