“It’s taken me 18 years and it’s a mixture of excitement and relief that finally I have done it. I didn’t look at the scoreboard until the 18th green because I knew anything could happen. I knew I was doing fairly well, because I was playing well, but I kept to myself and let it happen,” said Morgan.



“I decided today I would just play my game and not worry about one anyone else was doing. I had the chance to win here three years ago but got too caught up in what was going on, so I needed to keep my head down.”

Morgan started the day in a three-way tie for the lead with Ellie Givens and Nicole Broch Larsen and quickly gained the advantage with a birdie on the short third hole. She birdied the fourth to gain a two-shot cushion and then made another on the ninth, taking a one-stroke lead through the turn.



She missed the green at the 11th, resulting in her sole bogey of the day, but regained a share of the lead with a tidy birdie on the 13th hole.




Halfway leader Christine Wolf, who ended her third round with a nine on the last hole, had clawed her way back into a share of the lead with a short birdie putt on the 17th green, but her title hopes sank at the par-5 18th. She hit exactly the same approach shot as she had the previous day, catching the ball heavy and hitting it into the lake in front of the green, running up a double bogey seven, for a final round of 70.
