David Law eagles 18th to win Vic Open

David Law eagles 18th to win Vic Open

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.

Celine Boutier of France finished two in front of her nearest challengers.

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.

David Law celebrates after holing an eagle putt at the last hole.

Playing in the second last men's group at 13th Beach, Law knew he needed to eagle the par-5 final hole to get into contention.

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. I couldn't have asked for an easier putt and luckily it dropped. "It's an incredible event, we've loved it all week".

A standout when attending Duke University in the United States, 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 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.

"Out there today, I felt in control of my emotions and my game".

Playing in the day's second group, the 33-year-old from New South Wales bounced back from an opening double-bogey to absolutely blitz her way around the Beach Course. "I knew that I was kind of having a good score at the end and I got a little nervous coming down 18, but yeah, just lucked out".

Boutier made three birdies and as many bogies as she finished on 8 under overall, ahead of Australian duo Sarah Kemp and Su Oh and England's Charlotte Thomas on 6 under. Her nine birdies led to a 7-under 65, her best round since the fourth round of the 2010 Jamie Farr Owens Corning Classic, and skyrocketed her up the leaderboard to a tie for second.

Kaufman, who is targeting her first LPGA Tour win, had a two-shot lead overnight, but by the sixth hole she had been reeled in by Japan's Haru Nomura.
