Levet claims second Legends Tour title in Paris

Thomas Levet thrilled the home crowd as he secured an emotional second Legends Tour victory at the Legends Open de France hosted by Jean van de Velde.

The six-time European Tour winner carded a three under par final round of 68 to move to 13 under par, three shots clear of Canadian David Morland IV, who finished in second place at Golf de Saint-Cloud.        

The 52-year-old believes his triumph was written in the stars after the recent passing of his coach, and Levet paid tribute to the man that has played such an important part in his illustrious golfing career.    

“I think everything was written this week,” he said. “My coach died last Sunday and it’s my birthday tomorrow, so this is all for him. It’s a nice gesture for him because he has always looked after me, he was my coach for 40 years and I think it’s a good way to remember him and a gift for the family. I’m thrilled to win here, I’ve now done the double in the French Open and the French Senior Open, not too many people have done that. I’m really happy about it.”

“It was a lot of fun having the home crowd behind me,” he said. “My local club is only 15 minutes away, I have a lot of childhood friends here, members of my club and people that I have known for a long time. It’s always nice to win on home soil, it’s a special feeling.”  

Two-time European Tour winner James Kingston shared third place with three-time Legends Tour winner Gary Wolstenholme on nine under par, while American Clark Dennis finished fifth on seven under par.
