Sweden’s Maja Stark claimed a third LET win in eight months after recording a five-stroke victory at the Women’s NSW Open.
The 22-year-old led from day one at Coolangatta & Tweed Heads Golf Club and carded a fourth round of 70 to finish on 15-under-par and seal the win ahead of compatriot Johanna Gustavsson.
Starting the final round four shots clear of Gustavsson, Stark birdied the first to stretch her lead, but was only able to par the next 10 holes and then dropped a shot on the 12th to see her Gustavsson fired three birdies on her front nine to get within touching distance of the lead, but Stark make three birdies in the final five holes to reassert her lead and comfortably seal her third LET win since turning professional last August.
“I am super happy to get my third win on Tour. It was a slow start to the season in the US and then a couple of second places, so I’m very happy to get the win,” said Stark.
Gustavsson birdied the last to seal a second-place finish ahead of Argentina’s Magdalena Simmermacher, who produced a final round of 71 to finish in third place for the second week running.
