England's Becky Morgan won the Women's Indian Open championship. After taking part in the competition for the ninth time, Morgan tasted success for the first time in this edition. This is also Morgan's maiden proifessional title. Also, this was her 119th tournament on the Ladies European Tour.
After claiming the championship, Morgan was estatic and said, "It's taken me 18 years and it's a mixture of excitement and relief that finally I have done it. I didn't look at the scoreboard until the 18th green because I knew anything could happen. I knew I was doing fairly well because I was playing well - but I kept to myself and let it happen."
She further added, "I have always loved every aspect of India and hence returned for every edition. I came close to victory on many accounts in my previous attempts but finally won it this time."
Wales' Morgan secured her first professional title with a two-shot win. Morgan, 44, had shared the overnight lead with England's Ellie Givens and Denmark's Nicole Broch Larsen. She shot a three-under 69 in the final round to finish on seven under, ahead of Broch Larsen, Sweden's Caroline Hedwall, Austrian Christine Wolf and England's Felicity Johnson.
