Teenager Atthaya Thitikul has won the European women's championship for the second time in three years.

The 16-year-old amateur, who won this tournament at the age of 14, broke the track record in round three and shot a five-under 67 on Sunday to win at 22 under.

Esther Henseleit (64) came in second, with fellow German Olivia Cowan third in 11, while Hannah Burke from England (66) finished in shared sixth place in eight under.

"It feels unreal," Thitikul said after a rain-delayed final.

"I am very satisfied with all the things I have" done in this tournament. The last time I had a bogey was in the second round. I just placed the ball where I wanted it. Since I won two years ago, I have worked hard and have grown in confidence. "

Thitikul, the fifth largest amateur in the world, is the youngest player to win two women's rounds and her final triumph honoring her qualification for the Women's British Open in Woburn in August.

Because Thitikul is an amateur, Henseleit picked up the winner check of 45,000 euros (£ 40,000) to become second in the Ladies European Tour order of merit

"This is my third second place this year and of course I would like a win, but Atthaya played so well and she deserves this trophy, "said the 20-year-old.
