The female athlete has won the event for the first time in a European tour.
Linn Grant made history in an amazing style, too.
The 22-year-old Swedish player destroyed a men’s and women’s golf course at a Scandinavian Mixed event on Sunday. victory with nine strokes after 8-under 64 in the final round at Halmstad Golf Club.
Surprisingly, she finished 14 strokes past the next best woman, Gabriella Cowley, who took part in 15th.
“I just hope that people are more aware of women’s golf now,” said Grant, “that there are more sponsors going to the LET (Ladies European Tour) than men’s tours, and I hope this will gradually improve women’s sport.”
Grant started the day with a two-stroke lead and progressed slowly by making a bird in his first six holes, showing the brilliant batting spirit and calm breeze he displayed throughout the week in southern Sweden.
He first got nine strokes after getting the bird into the pit of par-5 11 and got it with his eighth and final bird in the round in another 5th, 14th. He ended a non-bogey weekend of his golf career.
It is the second stage of the competition, which starts with 78 men and 78 women on the field, playing the same course – although different tees are played – with one prize bag and one medal.
Grant said his main goal this week was to beat the men.
“That was the most important thing – all week, I felt like girls against boys,” she said.
Grant’s grandfather, James, was a Scottish golfer who moved from Inverness in northern Scotland to Helsingborg in Sweden. His father, John, has played in the Swedish Golf Tour, and has won seven Swedish Senior Tours.
Grant became an expert last year and won events on the Ladies European Tour in March and May, marking him as a star in painting. In a study interview with the top nine, Grant said having those two carts under his belt made him feel calm as he entered the biggest round of his life.
Her boyfriend, from Pontus, was her friend this week and her mother was in the study and was among those who congratulated Grant on each green day for the changing weather.
Swedish star Henrik Stenson, who hosted the event with teammate Annika Sorenstam, shot 70 and tied for second place with Marc Warren (65).
Sorenstam, one of the greatest female golfers ever, welcomed Grant alongside the 18-yard line after the victory.
