Beth Allen, from the USA wins the inaugural Fatima Bint Mubarak Ladies Open in Abu Dahbi.
Beth had a final round -8 under par 64 in the Fatima Bint Mubarak Ladies Open, which equalled the course record, to win the trophy with a total score of -21 under par, a three shot winning margin;
“This is really special. It’s so amazing to win an event that’s taking place for the first time, especially in a place like this that is supporting women in sports.”
“I’m just really happy that I got it done.”
“Obviously I’ve been playing really well and when I got done yesterday I felt really good and I knew I could do it, so I just tried to make as many birdies as I could today and turns out I made nine! I’m so pleased.”
“I really want to win the order of merit and I certainly think today helped. I love this course. I immediately thought, ‘wow’, I think I can shoot some low numbers around here.”
“The course is fantastic and we’ve been treated so well. I was feeling really relaxed and having such a great week.”
“It really helped me play well. I’ll certainly be coming back over and over and over.”
Georgia Hall finished second at -18 under par, -3 under 69 not good enough today;
“I played really well on the front nine and got to five-under but one of my bogeys was a bad mistake.”
“The other one wasn’t bad, I was trying to carry the bunker and I hit my drive so low that it plugged into it when it came down, so that was another bogey.”
“Without them, I probably could have caught Beth but I had no idea what score she was on.”
Melissa Reid and Sarah Kemp shared third place at -17 under par.
