Davies was 11 shots back going into the weekend after opening rounds of 74 and 76 but she made a tremendous charge up the leader board with a six-under 67 on Saturday.

“When I walked off the course on Friday I was very disappointed and I thought I was out of it. On a normal course you would say that was too far back but on a course like this it wasn’t too far. I’m really pleased. That’s what makes this such a good win, is because it’s such a good course,” she said.

She began her final round attack with birdies at the first, sixth and eighth holes. An impressive birdie at the tough par-four 10th took her to within a stroke of the lead but she bogeyed the next.

A monster eagle putt from the front of the green at the par five 14th followed by a birdie at the 15th, gave her two stroke advantage with three holes to play.

However after she bogeyed the 16th and Elosegui birdied the par-five 15th, they were tied on seven-under-par. Davies birdied the 17th but hit a poor tee shot at the 18th before leaving her second shot 20 yards short of the green. A chip and two putts left her at seven-under-par and due to a late charge by the two Korean players she could not relax until the very end.
