South Korean golfer Hur Mi-jung has captured the Ladies Scottish Open for her third LPGA win in five years.

She won the HUGEL-JTBC LA Open previous year for her first LPGA Tour title.

Further back Carly Booth went from a four-putt on Friday to 51 holes without a bogey, and even a couple in the last three holes to end that run didn't stop her from her best finish - a tie for ninth - in a LPGA-sanctioned event. Sharing third at 10 under were U.S. Women's Open champion Jeongeun Lee6 (65) and Anne van Dam, who followed her opening-round 63 with a 69. She's a newcomer to links golf.

"I think am still in the competition because when I won 2017, it wasn't good weather and I was six strokes behind at that time so I really have confidence right now".

With qualification for the Solheim Cup now closed following the final round in East Lothian, Europe captain Catriona Matthew will reveal her four wildcard picks on Monday for the September showpiece against the United States at Gleneagles. I hit two 1-irons into the fourth, 1-iron off the tee and 1-iron into the green. "I just have to play tomorrow".

Carly Booth, the 2012 victor, finished as leading Scot in joint-ninth after a closing 71 for 274. The 27-year-old was in with a chance of a top five after moving to two-under for the day after 15 holes only to bogey the 16th and 18th, having gone 50 holes without dropping a shot prior to that.

"Honestly I don't like links courses but after this week I love it!" "So that's why I've been starting playing a lot better than before".

After a damaging 81 on Saturday, Kylie Henry bounced back with a gutsy 66 to finish joint 50th on level-par. "I had two big numbers on my card and that really finished me".

"Gary was very good on Thursday when I bogeyed two holes in a row, he kept telling me I could win", she said.
