Ormsby to take two-shot lead to Vic Open final day

David Law seals Vic Open win with stunning eagle on final hole ISPS Handa Vic Open: Scotland's David Law wins first European title
Frederick Owens | 12 February, 2019, 13:11

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.

Japan's Haru Nomura, who played alongside Kaufman in Saturday's final group, is a shot behind at 7 under overall while a group of four players, South Korea's Mirim Lee, Australia's Katherine Kirk and England's and Felicity Johnson and Jodi Ewart Shadoff, are in a tie for fifth place at 4 under.

"We stood on the tee and we said we need to make eagle", Law said during the trophy presentation.

South Africa's Justin Harding, David Law of Scotland and Australian Brad Kennedy share fourth on 12 under.

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.

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

"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".

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. Scotland's David Drysdale and Australian Jason Scrivener and David Brandson finished a shot further adrift.

Playing the 16th, Law was three behind local favourite Wade Ormsby at the ISPS Handa Vic Open in Australia and rueing a penalty he called on himself on the ninth green when accidentally causing his ball to move.

Ormsby struggled to find many positives.

"I'm disappointed for sure, but what can I say?" It would have been great to win on home soil. I had a lot of chances to put everyone away early on with the putter. "It's been something I've been working towards since I turned pro and I just feel like it just happened -- I don't think I realise right now".

Kennedy was delighted to have come so close. But no, I'm super excited with the way I handled myself. I pulled it together really nicely, just stayed patient. I'll enjoy it next week when I get home and let it all sink in then.
