Laura Davies fired a closing four-under-par 68 to claim victory at the UniCredit Ladies German Open, presented by Audi, in Munich on Sunday.
The win at the Golfpark Gut Hausern was the veteran Englishwoman’s 74th career victory and saw the 46-year-old come from nine shots behind at the midway point.
Davies finished with an 11-under 277 total to finish two ahead of compatriot Melissa Reid, who closed with a 73, and three ahead of third-round leader Ashleigh Simon of South Africa, who finished with a 75.
It was Davies’ 40th Ladies European Tour victory.
Davies said: “I love playing golf courses which allow me to have fun and use my driver and cut some corners. This is built for me. I think the architect had me in mind.”
The four-time major champion started the day four shots behind Simon, but said that the key was that she did not have a bogey all weekend
She added: “I had four birdies and I didn’t have a bogey on the weekend and that’s always a good thing.”
