Heading for Order of Merit win?

Gustafson, who knocked a pitching wedge into ten feet, slipped the first one by to the right and was left with another dreaded 18-incher to hole. With photographers out of sight, obviously fearing the wrath of a potentially 21500 strong lynch-mob, Gustafson bravely rattled it home.

“It definitely disturbed me on my backswing,” said a relieved Gustafson of the incident.

“I was very upset during the playoff and I have to thank ‘Fooch’ for calming me down.

“This win means so much to me. To win in Sweden and to beat the world’s best player on the final day makes me feel so proud. This is a very important moment in my career.”

Pettersen endured the ‘round of her life’ where, in an six hole period from the, she was eight under par from the seventh hole onwards, the highlight of which was an eagle two after hitting driver to ten inches at the 250-metre long ninth.

“It could have easily been a 59,” said Pettersen, who was furious after dropping shots at both reachable par fives down the stretch.

“I decided to be aggressive and it paid off. I didn’t back off once.”
