What Happened To Thomas Levet?


Remember Thomas Levet? He’s the accomplished French golfer who took second in the Open Championship at Muirfield in 2002. One of four players in the playoff, he bogeyed the final hole of the four-hole playoff to fall into sudden death with Ernie Els, where he again bogeyed to lose.

Levet had a good couple of years following, the Scottish Open, as a member of the winning 2004 European Ryder Cup Team, and with a finish at fifth on the Order of Merit. He also spent a couple of years on the PGA Tour.

But since 2005, he’s been suffering from the same problem that apparently took David Duval down: vertigo.

There’s a good article in the Independent on Levet’s struggles with the disease.
