Scot Catriona Matthew hit a final-round 68 to win the Scandinavian TPC tournament in Sweden by three strokes.

The 37-year-old finished on nine under par at the Barseback Golf and Country Club to land her fifth career title.

"I'm absolutely delighted," said Matthew. "I haven't won in a couple of years and there's a great field here this week."

Sweden's Sophie Gustafson and American Laura Diaz tied for second on six under with another Swede Maria Hjorth fourth.

Annika Sorenstam, who was hosting the event, finished ninth on level par.

Matthew, who was tied for the lead with American Brittany Lincicome going into the final day, birdied four of the first five holes to race into a five-shot lead.

She dropped shots at the 6th and 10th but clawed them back with birdies at the 12th and 13th, finishing four under for the round.

"I struggled a bit at the turn but the birdies on 12 and 13 settled me down. It's fantastic," she said.

Lincicome dropped back to finish in eighth place on one under.
