Lindner secures maiden LET win

Ann-Kathrin Lindner shot 3-under-par 68 on Sunday to win the Honma Pilsen Golf Masters by a single stroke.

Lindner secured her first Ladies European Tour victory in just her seventh start, as the rookie overcame a 2-stroke overnight deficit and finished 54 holes at Golf Park Plzn at 12-under-par 201.

"I didn't expect anything," said Lindner "It was my dream to turn pro and play here. I really enjoy playing on the Ladies European Tour."

Alexandra Vilatte fired a career-low 63 to finish tied for second with Diana Luna (67) at 11-under, while Katie Burnett (64) and Maria Balikoeva (70) shared fourth at minus-10.

Overnight leader Anais Maggetti stumbled to a final-round 77, allowing Lindner to secure the victory with her steady, bogey-free round.

Lindner opened with five straight pars before carding a birdie at the par-4 sixth. She closed her outward 34 with a pair of pars and a birdie at the ninth to turn at 11-under.

The 25-year-old German mixed eight pars and a birdie at the 14th during her inward nine. When she tapped in for par at the last, only Balikoeva and Jade Schaeffer could catch her with an eagle. And when both of their chances missed, Lindner had her maiden Ladies European Tour title.
