Sweden’s Anna Nordquist took top honors at the British LPGA Open Sunday in Carnoustie, Scotland.
The 34-year-old thus secured her third major tournament win and 11th on the prestigious women’s circuit. To do so, he made four birdies and made a single mistake in the fourth round, which allowed him to be handed a card of 69 (-3).
“I’ve been waiting for this win for a while, because I haven’t won for a few years,” said the woman, who won her last major tournament in 2017.
“I had a lot of tough times, which made this victory even more delicious,” he said.

Nordquist finished the event with a cumulative of 276 (-12), one strike less than compatriot Madeleine Sagstrom, Briton Georgia Hall and American Lizzette Salas.
He also took advantage of the defeat of Danish Nanna Koerstz Madsen. The latter tied with the champion after 17 holes, but he double bugged on the 18th pennant. This reduced his chances of victory to zero and confirmed Sweden’s victory.
“I could only dream of winning the British Open,” Nordquist said. I was to get married after about 20 minutes from here. This place is just special to me. I’ve never seen Carnoustie so beautiful.”
Based on his winnings, the champion received a check for $870,000.
The only Canadian to compete for this prestigious tournament, Brooke M. Henderson ended his week with a 72(n) round. The maple leaf representative collected three birdies and made several bogeys. His total of 282 (-6) shots put him on a par with six other golfers for 13th place in the final standings.
This is the eighth consecutive competition where the Ontarian is unable to finish in the top 10, a first for him since playing in the LPGA. However, Henderson finished in the top 25 out of the five majors in the 2021 campaign.
The 23-year-old golfer will now be entitled to a three-week break.
