Past Scottish Open Champion Pulls Out of this Year’s Event Due to Unfortunate Mishap

The last few weeks have been a rollercoaster for Frenchman, Thomas Levet. Firstly, he was successful in the pressure-packed final qualifying event for the Open Championship at Sunningdale.  He carried on his good run of form by winning his National Open, the Alstom Open de France. But now he has been forced out of the Scottish Open and – more than likely – the Open Championship.  In recent years it has become the norm for French players to be drenched in champagne after a victory.  On Sunday, this tradition continued and Levet’s fellow French pro’s covered him in champagne.  After his champagne shower, Levet decided to jump into the greenside lake at the 18th hole where he subsequently fractured his shin.  For more details, please click here.
