Spain’s Azahara Munoz took full advantage of local knowledge to retain her title in the Andalucia Costa del Sol Open de Espana Femenino at her home course.
The 29-year-old, who won her first tournament at Real Club de Golf Guadalmina aged nine, carded a closing 69 to finish 19 under par, two shots ahead of Carlota Ciganda and South Africa’s Lee-Anne Pace.
“I couldn’t be any happier, defending my title on my home course and where I grew up,” said Munoz, who celebrated — as promised — by jumping into the club’s swimming pool.
“It’s been an amazing week and all the fans were here supporting me, so I’m happy I did it for them. Today on the back nine I made some amazing up and downs, so that was definitely the key.”
