Jean van de Velde loses the 1999 Open Championship
July 2007

Bidding to become only the second Frenchman to win The Open, Jean van de Velde came to the 18th at Carnoustie with the luxury of a three-shot lead, meaning he could afford a double bogey 6 and still lift the Claret Jug.

Instead he took 7, finally holing a brave 8-foot putt after finding thick rough, a grandstand, the Barry Burn and a deep greenside bunker, before losing in the resulting three-way playoff to Paul Lawrie.
