Mo Martin / Getty Images Mo won the Women's British Open at Royal Birkdale with an Eagle at the final hole, which gave her a final round of even par 72 and -1 under par winning total. This was her first win on Tour and agreed it was the best shot into the green she had ever played; “Yeah, absolutely 100 per cent, it’s kind of a Cinderella story. Safe to say, it’s the best week of my life.” “Just my drive.  I picked the left side, so I had to hit it up the left side and let it feed up a little bit right.  That was the strategy my caddie, Kyle, and I had all week.  My second shot there is one I'm always going to remember." “It was a tough day of golf today.  I mean, it was very windy and this course is very challenging.  So stayed patient and I fortunately played some really good golf today."

“From first time I saw Royal Birkdale, I fell in love with it. I think the layout is absolutely phenomenal.”

Shanshan Feng and Suzann Pettersen tied in second place, both finishing the tournament at even par. The windy conditions, with gusts up to 30 mph making scoring very difficult.

Inbee Park was in fourth spot on her own at +1 over par for the competition, a last round of +5 over par 77 dashing any hopes she had of winning.

Some 28 years since winning the 1986 British Open at Royal Birkdale, England’s recently appointed Dame Laura Davies carded a final  round of +1 over par 73, which lifted her into ninth position on +4 over-par, and to share that placing with American Marina Alex and South Korean Sun-Ju Ahn.
