Edinburgh, Scotland – Catriona Matthew got a very comfortable win in very comfortable surroundings.
Playing at Archerfield Lakes, where she's an honorary member, and staying at home, just four miles from the course, Matthew shot a six-under 66 on Saturday to cruise to a 10-stroke victory at the Scottish Ladies Open.
"I'm absolutely delighted to win the Aberdeen Ladies Scottish Open on my home turf on a course I'm a member at and I live along the road," said Matthew, a former Women's British Open champion. "I felt a little bit of pressure at the start of the week, so I'm just delighted that I finished well."
Matthew finished at 15-under 201 and dusted first-round leader Hannah Jun, who had an even-par 72 in breezy conditions Saturday, by 10.
Matthew picked up six birdies and a bogey through her first eight holes Saturday. She carried a nine-shot lead into the back nine and polished off the lopsided victory with a 15-foot birdie putt at the last.
"Playing in front of a lot of family and friends, there was definitely pressure and it makes it extra special," said Matthew, who picked up her fourth Ladies European Tour win. "I don't get the chance to play in Scotland very often. It was great to see so many familiar faces in the crowd this week."
France's Caroline Afonso shot a one-under 71 and took third at minus-four, followed by Elizabeth Bennett, whose four-under 68 on Saturday gave her fourth at three-under 213.
