Celine Boutier clinched the biggest win of her career at the pioneering ISPS Handa Vic Open on Sunday.
The tournament features male and female fields playing in alternate groups on the same course, with the LPGA Tour teaming up with the European Tour for the first time.
The Frenchwoman would sign for a solid even par 72, enough to take her to eight under for the event and two shots ahead of Sarah Kemp, Charlotte Thomas and Su Oh.
Boutier birdied the 15th and notched up pars on her final three holes to secure her maiden LPGA Tour victory.
