Women's Open: Nordquist crowned

Sweden’s Anna Nordqvist, 54th in the world, won the women’s British Open on Sunday, taking advantage of a decisive error on the last hole by her rival Nanna Korstz Madsen. Already titled in the LPGA Championship in 2009 and Evian in 2017, Nordquist won the third major title of his career at 34. “I’ve been waiting for this for a long time, the last few years have been tough,” said the champion, happy to win in Scotland where her husband is. “I couldn’t have asked for anything better than a win at the Carnoustie Open. This place is really special,” she said. “The supporters have been great and my caddy is Scottish too. Both inspired me. It’s great to be in the crowd again this year,” Nordquist said.

With a card of 69 for Sunday’s final round, she completed 12 strokes under par, one short of Georgia Hall, Madeleine Sagstrom and Lizet Salas. Very good omen, two weeks before the Solheim Cup, the women’s equivalent of the Ryder Cup in Toledo (USA), where Nordqvist should be part of the European team for the seventh time.
