Vic Open - Celine Boutier wins title as Kim Kaufman blows overnight lead

In the men's event, Briton David Law produced a sparkling eagle on the 18th hole to snatch a one-stroke victory and claim his maiden European Tour title.

Around the same time a huge roar reverberated around the Barwon Heads links and it was a Scot who had caused it. David Law, 27, is an unheralded player in this part of the world, having spent five years on the secondary Challenge Tour trying to find his way on to the main European Tour.

Australian Wade Ormsby recovered from a double bogey to take the lead in the $1 million ISPS Handa Vic Open on a day when just standing still was a chore, never mind moving up the leaderboard.

There was also a 54-hole cut in the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, where Shane Lowry missed out by just two shots despite rallying from Friday's 77 at Pebble Beach with a four-under 67 at Monterey Peninsula.

South Africa's Justin Harding, David Law of Scotland and Australian Brad Kennedy share fourth on 12 under. I couldn't have asked for an easier putt and luckily it dropped. 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.

Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar once again faces anti-Semitism allegations
A Jewish advocacy organization has called out Democrat Congresswoman Ilhan Omar characterizing a tweet she wrote about the pro-Israel lobby as "stunningly anti-Semitic ".

He ended on 18-under-par after a round of 66, winning his first European Tour event after only securing his playing card last November following a stint on the Challenge Tour. Now into her second season on the LPGA Tour after a solid first year when 61st on the money list in 2018, Boutier has won events on the Ladies European Tour but this victory elevates her to a new level.

"I think just the first two days being aggressive and just making a lot of birdies, and the game is there", said Kaufman of what she learned about herself. I've been working so hard for this.

"I'm very happy with the way I handled myself. I kept fighting to the end".

She only needed to shoot even-par for the day to finish at eight-under and win by two shots since the overnight leader, American Kim Kaufman, had an very bad day, starting with a needless double bogey from behind the green at the par-five fifth and ultimately shooting a 78. She was joined in second by fellow Australian Su Oh and 2019 LPGA Tour rookie Charlotte Thomas of England.

Playing in the final group alongside overnight leader Kim Kaufman and Boutier, the 22-year-old Oh began sluggishly before threatening to make a move in the closing holes.
