Martin is surprise winner of women's British Open
An eagle at the 18th hole gave American Mo Martin a surprise victory in the women’s British Open at Royal Birkdale on Sunday.
It was not only her first major, but a first success in any event on the LPGA Tour.
Martin, from California, carded a par 72 in windy conditions on the final day to finish on one under-par 287, one stroke ahead of China’s Shanshan Feng and Norway’s Suzann Pettersen who both shot final round 75s.
