Law, who began the day three shots off overnight leader Ormsby, struck a brilliant approach to within 10 feet of the pin on the par-five 18th and coolly rolled in the eagle putt to pressure the leading Ormsby.

"I didn't expect to be in this situation".

A standout when attending Duke University in the USA, the 25-year-old recovered from a shaky start to her final round when recording bogeys at two of her first three holes to finish with a round of 72 and win by two.

David Law celebrates after holing an eagle putt at the last hole.

With her two-shot victory, Boutier became the first woman from France to win on the global circuit since Patricia Meunier-Lebouc in 2003.

"Luckily it's a links-style golf course, you can run the ball in, which I'm used to doing", said Law, who graduated to this year's Tour via finishing 14th on the 2018 European Challenge Tour.

Ormsby chipped in on the fifth to pull a shot back and gained another on the ninth to get back to par for the round before gains on the 13th and 18th holes gave him the outright lead.

Australian Wade Ormsby remained on course for his second European Tour win after carding a two-under 70 in the third round to move to 15 under at the Vic Open yesterday, two shots ahead of compatriot Matthew Stieger (65).

The LEADERS Top 10 competition awards a $100,000 bonus to the LPGA player with the most top-10 finishes through the completion of the event held immediately prior to the CME Group Tour Championship.

Challenge Tour graduate Law, who picked up a winners' cheque of £820,000 said: "To have won, it sort of changes things a little bit". I'll go home, reflect a little bit on things and reassess.

"Until then, it was just about trying to get into position for a top-three or a top-two finish".

Brad Kennedy finished at 17 under alongside Ormsby, one shot clear of South Africa's Justin Harding.

"We stood on the tee and we said we need to make eagle", Law said after claiming the A$1.5 million ($1.06 million) winner's check. "I'm delighted. It's been an unbelievable event".

"I'm so happy with how I handled myself today". "It's been something I've been working towards since I turned pro and I just feel like it just happened -- I don't think I realise right now". 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.
