Scotland's David Law nailed an eagle on the last to win his first European Tour title Sunday, while France's Celine Boutier clinched her maiden LPGA Tour crown at the pioneering Vic Open.

Until he won promotion from the Challenge Tour last November, the 27-year-old from Aberdeen was planning to supplement his income this winter by working in the warehouse for one of his sponsors, who make gym equipment.

In the women's tournament, French golfer Celine Boutier has hung tough to claim a two-stroke victory.

A 30-foot birdie at the 15th hole proved decisive for Boutier, pulling her two strokes clear and allowing her the relative luxury of making par for the win on eight-under-par 281 total.

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. The ISPS Handa Vic Open is jointly sanctioned by the LPGA Tour, the ALPG, the European Tour and the ISPS Handa PGA Tour of Australasia.

"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".

He stepped up superbly, smashing an approach shot with his hybrid to within eight feet and calmly draining the eagle putt.

The round was made even more remarkable given she double bogeyed her first hole of the day. "It's not always easy to be able to get your first win", Boutier said after staving off nerves for her breakthrough victory.

To say that Aussie Sarah Kemp had a career day is a gross understatement. "Just stuck to my game plan out there", he added. Her nine birdies led to a 7-under 65, her best round since the fourth round of the 2010 Jamie Farr Owens Corning Classic, and skyrocketed her up the leaderboard to a tie for second. I tried to stay patient.

"At the time I was just trying to get into solo second".

"We had maybe two tee boxes where we got out of it and we all just went, "Oh, thank God for one second". She holed out from the bunker on the par-3 seventh to help salvage her round. 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.

Through the first two events of the LPGA season, 21 players have top-10 finishes, led by Diamond Resorts Tournament of Champions victor Eun-Hee Ji and ISPS Handa Vic Open victor Celine Boutier.
