David Law completes maiden European Tour win with eagle on 18th

Overnight leader Ormsby still looked the likely victor until he made a mess of the par-3 17th hole, missing the green to the left and taking two chips before walking away with a double-bogey.

A standout when attending Duke University in the U.S., the 25-year-old recovered from a shaky start to her final round when recording bogeys at two of her first three holes to finish with a round of 72 and win by two. "It's not something I expected".

It was co-sanctioned this year by the European Tour and US LPGA Tour for the first time.

David Law hits an iron shot on his way to a closing six-under-par 66 in Australia.

Scot David Law won the men's event for his first European Tour success.

"We had to go for it, so I sort of took a bit off a hybrid and lucky it went to eight-10 feet".

The win, which came after two missed cuts in a row in Abu Dhabi and Saudi Arabia, lifted Law to 17th in this season's Race to Dubai.

"We got hammered with the rain for about three or four holes there, so it was really good to get through that stretch", Asian Tour regular Stieger said after sinking seven birdies to stay in the hunt. "We make eagle, we post 18 under, you never know what can happen".

Law and his partner, Natasha, suffered tragedy off the course in 2017 when son Freddie was stillborn. But then, he won the SSE Scottish Hydro Championship on the Challenge Tour and that helped earn his Tour card. 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.

"Everyone at the Paul Lawrie Foundation are incredibly proud of David Law and we hope all juniors get inspiration from him".

Italy's Matteo Berrettini also mounted a comeback to upset Fernando Verdasco of Spain 4-6, 7-5, 6-4, claiming a second famous scalp after upsetting Russian Karen Khachanov earlier in the tournament.

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.

Boutier carded a final-round 72 to hold off Australians Sarah Kemp (65) and Su Oh (74), while Thomas closed with a 69 and overnight leader Kim Kaufman slumped to a 78 to finish four shots adrift.
