Hall wins Ladies British Masters

Lydia Hall of Wales overcame a bogey at her final hole Saturday to earn her first Ladies European Tour victory at the Ladies British Masters.

Hall managed an even-par 72 on Saturday and it was enough for a 1-shot victory. It was a long-time coming for Hall after five years on the Ladies European Tour.

She finished at 7-under 209.

Beth Allen was in the lead at 9-under par until triple bogey at the 17th hole. She signed for a 1-over 73 and came in second at minus-6.

Second-round leader Ashleigh Simon was in position for the victory, but she was undone by a double at the 17th. She shot a 4-over 76 and tied for third with Trish Johnson, Stacy Lee Bregman, Rebecca Artis, Henrietta Zuel and Mikaela Parmlid at 5-under par.
