David Law, the Paul Lawrie Golf Centre Touring Professional, took the next big step in his Professional Golf career by produced an incredible finish to overhaul tournament leader Wade Ormsby and win his first European Tour title at the ISPS Handa Vic Open in only his 18th start.
The Scotsman who was three shots back after 15 holes made a fine birdie on the 16th before producing a stunning second shot to eight feet to set up an eagle chance on the par-five 18th. Rolling in his eagle effort gave Law a share of the lead with Ormsby at 18 under and when the home favourite made double-bogey on the 17th, he required an eagle at the last to force a play-off. Ormsby’s approach to 18 left him with a chance for eagle, however he had to settle for a birdie giving Law a 1 shot winning margin.
“It’s massive,” he said. “It’s not something I expected. For me just being out here playing on the European Tour was enough. “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. To have won today, it sort of changes things a little bit. I’ll go home, reflect a little bit on things and reassess. He added: “We said we were going to try to finish three-two-four in the hope that we could get a top-three finish. Then birdie 16, par 17, and going down the last we said we need eagle. We make eagle, we post at 18 under, you never know what can happen.”
