Victor Perez admitted his success had been “Made in Scotland” after becoming the first Frenchman to win the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship, writes Martin Dempster.

The 27-year-old, who beat Bob MacIntyre in a play-off to win the Foshan Open in 
China last year, lives in 
Dundee, where his girlfriend, Abigail, is a dental student.

“I practise at Ladybank,” said Perez after picking up a cheque for £640,000 for his maiden European Tour win. “I also work at Panmure quite a bit. Andrew Crerar, the head pro, has been fantastic with me.

“And then I go to Drumoig to play a few rounds because it’s right across the bridge from me from Dundee. I also come here to the Academy at St Andrews because I think they have done a fantastic job redoing the whole chipping area.”
