Morgan clinches maiden pro title

Wales' Becky Morgan secured her first professional title

IN HER 18TH year on tour and 119th tournament, Wales' Becky Morgan secured her first professional title with a two-shot victory in the Hero Women's Indian Open. The 44-year-old posted rounds of 72, 72, 68 and 69 for a seven-under-par total ahead of Christine Wolf, Caroline Hedwall, Felicity Johnson and Nicole Broch Larsen.

"It's taken me 18 years and it's a mixture of excitement and relief that finally I have done it," said Morgan, who could finally enjoy her moment in the sun. "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. I had the chance to win here three years ago but got too caught up in what was going on, so I needed to keep my head down."

It was a long journey for Morgan, who hails from Abergavenny, whose runner-up finish in the 2001 French Open was one of 22 top ten finishes on the Ladies European Tour without a win. She tied for second at the same tournament in 2015.

"I have always loved everything about India," she added. "That's why I have kept coming back and I did come close to winning a couple of times. But finally, I got the job done this time."
