Briton David Law produced a sparkling eagle on the 18th hole to snatch a one-stroke victory at the Vic Open in Barwon Heads, Australia, and claim his maiden European Tour title on Sunday. "It's not something I expected".
"It's massive", he said.
David Law celebrates after holing an eagle putt at the last hole.
Kaufman is on 10-under for the tournament, two strokes ahead of France's Celine Boutier and Australia's Su Oh.
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. He recovered with four birdies over his next 16 holes to move into pole position for his second European Tour victory following the 2018 Hong Kong Open.
Law (38), who was considering taking a winter job before he won the Scottish Challenge previous year, was three shots off the lead with three holes to play.
"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".
On the course, things took a turn for the better a year later with a first win on the Challenge Tour in his native land.
Stieger recorded a 65 to be level alongside Shinkwin (66) at the close of play, while Justin Harding (66), Brad Kennedy (72) and David Law (71) are bunched together on 12 under. Yeah, I'll go home, reflect a little bit on things and reassess.
"I feel like I've struggled a bit all day with my long game and I just didn't have many birdie opportunities", said Boutier, who ended up with third birdies on the day to go with three bogeys.
"We stood on the tee and we said we need to make eagle", Law said during the trophy presentation.
"Then standing on the 18th fairway, we knew that if you make an eagle, you put a bit of pressure on".
Boutier wins US$165,000 for her win the total prize pool for both events the same.
Boutier, who played 25 events a year ago, making 16 cuts, scored the biggest win of her career with rock solid par round of 72 to finish on eight-under for the tournament.
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.
