Sweden's Caroline Hedwall won the PowerPlay Golf driven by Saab: IGNITION event at Celtic Manor on Sunday, beating her compatriot Helen Alfredsson by three points.
PowerPlay Golf (PPG) has been hailed as the sport's equivalent to Twenty20 Cricket, in that it delivers a high-excitement version of the sport in a short time frame.
PPG's two-flag 'risk and reward' format was played out on nine specially selected holes on The Celtic Manor Resort's Twenty Ten course.
Paula Creamer and Victor Dubuisson set the early pace but Hedwall finished with three PowerPlay birdies worth six points each to surge into the lead.
It capped a memorable few days for Hedwall who secured her first Ladies European Tour victory the previous day at the Allianz Slovak Ladies Open
"That was a lot of fun. I was in the middle of the pack with three to play but knew I still had a chance with PowerPlays in reserve," said the Swede.
"I was very nervous on the first tee but playing with Ian Poulter and Helen Alfredsson was a great experience."
Hedwall picked up a £100,000 first prize - 50% of which she is donating to the Swedish Golf Federation.
Fans were treated to a stellar 12-player field and the event was broadcast live on Sky Sports. For more information visit powerplay-golf.com
