Austria win ends Davies drought
Laura Davies
Davies needs one more Tour win to enter the LPGA Hall of Fame
Laura Davies shot six-under par 66 to win her first title for 13 months at the Ladies Golf Open in Austria.

The 43-year-old, who carded a course record 65 in round two, ended on 16 under to claim her 36th Ladies European Tour title and her 68th in total.

Sophie Gustafson was four shots back while England's Kirsty Taylor tied for third with Virginie Lagoutte-Clement.

"It was getting late in the year and I've only got eight tournaments left so I had to win one," said Davies.

Davies started the day at 10 under par with a one-stroke lead over Gustafson, but a double bogey by the Swede on the fifth meant Davies opened up a three shot advantage.

A birdie on the seventh and an eagle on the ninth meant Davies turned five shots ahead and despite a bogey on the 10th, she strolled to her first victory in Austria.

She added: "It's massive, it's massive. I just love winning trophies and this makes it that there was only one year in 23 that I didn't win a tournament (2005) and that still wrangles me.

"I love the golf course and that was one of the reasons I came back. I knew I could do well around here and here I am: I'm the winner."
