Law keen to build on Vic Open triumph

12th February 2019, 15:16 by Bobbie Jackson

David Law has vowed to kick on as he looks to win more titles following his maiden European Tour victory over the weekend.

The 27-year-old holed an eagle on the last to win the Handa Vic Open in Australia by one shot from Brad Kennedy.

Law was making just his fifth appearance on the main tour and victory in Geelong guarantees his status for the next two years.

The Scot admits he is delighted to have that security and insists he will continue to press on as he seeks further glory.

Law told BBC Scotland: "One of the toughest things to do is keep your tour card and thankfully I don't have to worry about that.

"My last six years as a pro, I wouldn't have made enough money to shout about. Financially it makes a big difference, it's given me security that I'm playing this season and next season on the tour, which is huge.

"I can't sit back and soak up everything from the victory, I need to now kick on."
