Golf fans all over the world are wanting for an epic battle  between Tiger Woods, Ian Poulter, and Henrik Stenson at the Turkish Airlines Open, but then came the Frenchmen. The 23 year-old Victor Dubuisson from France held off some of golf’s biggest names to win Turkish Airlines Open by two shots on Sunday 10th and make his first European Tour victory. The youngster from France added a nine under par 63 on Saturday to an already impressive total, and will take a five shot lead to the first tee on Sunday. Ian Poulter lost ground to the leader in the third round, but has sole possession of second place. Dubuisson, who is ranked 108th in the world, and is currently 49th on the Race To Dubai points list, fired another bogey-free round on Saturday and has left the big three chasing.

Dubuisson started the fourth round with nine straight pars but had three birdies on his last four holes for a 3-under 69 that gave him a 24-under total of 264. “I am so happy as I struggled early and not managing to make my first birdie to the 10th hole. I was also watching the leader board and I could see all the good players coming back to me,” Dubuisson said. “But then my caddy said to me that if I make one or two birdies near the end I would be fine, so then to hole that 25-foot putt for birdie on 17 and to make the eight-footer on the last was very special.”   Fellow countryman, Raphael Jacquelin set a new record at the Montgomerie Maxx Golf Course in Antalya, Turkey with a 10 under par 62. Jacquelin had three, four birdie runs on Saturday beginning at the first hole. He birdied one through four, eight through eleven, and fifteen through eighteen. His only hiccup was a double bogey at the par three fifth hole. “I’m proud of the record,” admitted Jacquelin. “I have a few records on Tour. I made eight birdies in a row a long time ago. I know I can score a little bit. I don’t know where was it, but it is back, so I’m very pleased with it.”
