French golfer Thomas Levet won his country’s national championship on Sunday. He celebrated by jumping in the pond at Le Golf National. He also broke a bone in his shin, putting the chances of playing in next week’s British Open in question.

The Old Course at Sunningdale played host to Europe’s 36-hole International Final Qualifying event for next month’s Open Championship yesterday, with ten players from a field of non-exempt tour professionals eventually securing tee times at Royal St. George’s.
