Becky Brewerton claimed the Spanish Open after a final-round 70 left the Welsh number one on a four-round total of 270 at Panorámica Golf & Country Club in Castelló.

Brewerton finished six shots clear of fellow Welshwoman Breanne Loucks, Italian
Diana Luna and Spaniards Tania Elosegui and Emma Cabrera-Bello to win the Open de España Femenino.

It was Brewerton’s second Ladies European Tour title following the 2007 Ladies English Open and she earned a first prize of €41,250 as well as a place in the Evian Masters tournament in France.

Brewerton shared the first round lead after opening with a 65 but added rounds of 69 and 66 to be five strokes clear of the field entering the final round.

“I’m so, so happy. To have such a big lead at the start was nice because it was a little bit nervy at the end when the wind was gusting up. It was a brilliant week,” Brewerton said.

At the start of the week, Brewerton declared her hopes of making Europe’s Solheim Cup team, due to play at Rich Harvest Farms in Illinois from 17-23 August.

“I said in my interviews after the first couple of rounds that it was an absolute must that I had to win here to get some Solheim points, to get into the Evian, to give myself a better chance of making that team and it paid off.”
