Becky Morgan from Wales took care of her first professional title with a win of two times at the Hero Women's Indian Open.

Morgan, 44, shared the night led with Ellie Givens of England and Nicole Broch Larsen of Denmark.

She shot a three-under-69 in the final Sunday round to finish at seven below, ahead of Broch Larsen, the Swede Caroline Hedwall, the Austrian Christine Wolf and Felicity Johnson of England.

It was her 119th tournament during the Ladies European Tour.

She achieved second place at the Indian Open in 2015, one of the 22 top 10 finishes.

"It took me 18 years and it is a mixture of excitement and relief that I finally did," said Morgan.

"I did not look at the scoreboard until the 18th green because I knew everything could happen.

" I knew I was doing pretty well because I played well – but I stayed with my yourself and let it happen. "

Meanwhile, the English Bronte Law ended in a tie for the ninth place at the inaugural LPGA Shanghai

A final round 70 meant that the 23-year law ended at 10 under par, three shots behind Danielle Kang of the United States.
