Vic Open - Wade Ormsby to take two-shot lead into final day

Australian Wade Ormsby leads the Vic Open by two shots after the third round

Scotland's David Law produced a spectacular finish to overhaul long-time leader Wade Ormsby and win his first European Tour title at the ISPS Handa 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.

The pioneering tournament, which is co-sanctioned by the European Tour and the LPGA Tour, is the only one in the world with male and female fields, playing in alternate groups on the same course and for equal prize money.

Boutier made a crucial birdie on the par-4 15th hole and showed nerves of steel to claim a two-shot victory in the $1.5 million tournament at 13th Beach.

"I'm so happy with how I handled myself today".

Australians Sarah Kemp (65) and Su Oh (74) and England's Charlotte Thomas (69) have tied for second on 283. "Then on 15 when I made that putt, kind of really made me like motivate myself and made me really more confident in my abilities to win the tournament".

Scot David Law won the men's event for his first European Tour success.

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

Oh, joint runner-up in the 2015 Vic Open, knew she'd done well to remain in touch with Kaufman despite not having her best form, and knows it will likely be tense tomorrow as she, as Kaufman, chases her first LPGA Tour crown.

She began her round inauspiciously with a double-bogey before turning things around in dramatic fashion with nine birdies, including five in succession beginning at the fourth hole.

"It was one of those days you nearly can't remember what happened", said Kemp, who knocked in five consecutive birdies at Nos. 4-8.

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

The CME Group Cares Challenge is a season-long charitable giving program that turns aces into donations. She holed out from the bunker on the par-3 seventh to help salvage her round.

"We got hammered with the rain for about three or four holes there, so it was really good to get through that stretch", Asian Tour regular Stieger said after sinking seven birdies to stay in the hunt.

Celine Boutier of France finished two in front of her nearest challengers.
