Congratulations, too, to the four men who have secured their spots in The Open Championship at Royal Troon - namely Brandon Stone, Alex Noren, Callum Shinkwin and Richard Sterne, who did it despite back-to-back bogeys on 17 and 18. Not a bad consolation prize...

In she goes, in she goes and that is a hugely impressive performance from the Thai veteran - his eighth European Tour title secured in brilliant fashion. Well played that man!

CONGRATULATIONS THONGCHAI JAIDEE - WINNER OF THE 100TH OPEN DE FRANCE!

15:35

What a fantastic lag putt that is. Thongchai, with his family watching in the wings, dribbles his par putt down the 18th green to within inches of the cup and he'll have a tap-in for a four-shot victory.

15:32

Jaidee chips out and leaves himself 110-odd yards to the pin. To the back of the green it goes and he'll have several putts for the win! What a display of front-running from the Thai.
