Victorian Deyen Lawson has made an instant impression on the European Tour, if not on Golf Channel’s Charlie Rymer.

Nick CullenA recent graduate of Q School to earn full playing rights for the 2019 season, Lawson finished his season at the Alfred Dunhill Championship in South Africa by picking up a brand new BMW 850 M for making an ace at Leopard Creek Country Club’s 167-yard par-3 16th in the final round.

Incredibly, it was Lawson’s second consecutive eagle having made three at the par-5 15th hole, lifting him to a 2-under 70 and a tie for 47th in his final event of the year.

But in an analysis of Lawson’s ace on Golf Channel’s Morning Drive, Rymer barely gave Lawson a pass mark for his richly rewarding shot.

“It looked a little thin to me,” said Rymer, a notoriously tough marker of made aces.

“Did you see the way it rolled in? It’s an 8-iron from 167 yards, shouldn’t it be backing up a little?

“That’s like a C-minus there.

“He probably pushed it a little bit too; he wasn’t aiming at that flag.”

Nevertheless, we’re quite sure Deyen is pretty chuffed with his early Christmas present that is expected to sell in Australia for more than $270,000.
