When Levet broke through to win his home tournament, the French Open, the attention quickly shifted from how he won to how he celebrated. His impromptu jump into a lake ended up breaking his shin, causing him to withdraw from the British Open a little more than a week later. Even worse, Levet had to endure criticism from fellow players. "I think it's the silliest thing that players have done over the years, I really do," Colin Montgomerie said. "I've always been suspect about people diving into lakes that don't know how deep it is and what's in there." Hey Monty, thanks for the support!
