Boutier, Law take Vic Open golf titles in Australia

David Law claimed his maiden European Tour victory after producing a brilliant finish to win the ISPS Handa Vic Open in Australia. The men's European Tour is co-sanctioning the Perth World Super 6 in Western Australia next week.

Australian Kemp shot a 7-under-65 to card the lowest round of the day, despite starting with a double bogey on the 1st.

He gave himself the opportunity, but his eight-metre putt sneaked wide and he settled for a birdie and a tie for second with fellow Australian Brad Kennedy.

South Africa's Justin Harding finished fourth on 16 under with Scotland's David Drysdale and Australians Jason Scrivener and David Bransdon a shot further back.

"Walking to the tenth I hit the reset button and tried to keep calm", said Law, who called a penalty on himself for a moving ball on the ninth which resulted in a bogey.

"On the last I knew I needed an eagle to at least force a play-off".

Watch day three of the third Test between Windies and England , in St Lucia, live on Sky Sports Cricket from 1.30pm on Monday. Bowling: Roach 19-9-34-0, Gabriel 19-5-44-1, Joseph 15-2-56-1, Paul 16-7-42-2, Chase 10-0-40-0, Brathwaite 4-0-5-0.

"On 15 when I made that putt, kind of really made me motivate myself and made me really more confident in my abilities to win the tournament". "I'm delighted. It's been an wonderful event".

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.

Boutier shot a final-round 72 to finish at 8-under 281. "It's not always easy to be able to get your first win", Boutier said after staving off nerves for her breakthrough victory.

"At the time I was just trying to get into solo second". I've been working so hard for this.

"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. I kept fighting to the end". The Frenchwoman finished on eight under to hold off local favourites Sarah Kemp and Su Oh, as well as England's Charlotte Thomas.

In the women's tournament, which is also the second stop on the LPGA circuit, American Kim Kaufman clung on to a two-shot lead despite going three-over-par 75.
