Laura Davies wins Austrian Ladies Open for 75th worldwide victory

English star Laura Davies won the Austrian Ladies Open on Sunday for her 75th worldwide victory, closing with a 2-under 70 to beat France's Virginie Lagoutte-Clement by a stroke.

Davies, also the winner at Golf Club Foehrenwald in 2007 and 2008 and second last year, finished at 11-under 205. She won with a birdie on the final hole after hitting a shot from a greenside bunker to 6 feet.

"I was shaking," Davies said. "Over that bunker shot, with all the water behind, my legs were a bit shaky on that and over the putt, but I guess that's just the adrenaline and you're just excited about trying to win a golf tournament."

At 46 years, 11 months, she broke her own record as the oldest winner in Ladies European Tour history. The four-time major champion also won LET events this year in New Zealand and Germany.

Lagoutte-Clement shot a 68.
