Linn Grant makes final day surge to win Scandinavian Mixed

Linn Grant came from 11 shots back at the start of the day to become the first woman to win two DP World Tour titles, as runaway 54-hole leader Sebastian Soderberg saw the Volvo Car Scandinavian Mixed title slip through his fingers.

Soderberg's closing 77 meant he finished in a share of second place alongside Scotland's Calum Hill on 16 under, with Swedish Ladies European Tour star Johanna Gustavsson three shots further back in a tie for fourth with Englishmen Alex Fitzpatrick and Andy Sullivan.

Grant flew out of the blocks on day four, making four birdies in five holes from the second to close the gap.

The 24-year-old took dead aim at the ninth to set up a six-foot birdie before holing from 15 feet on the 10th for back-to-back birdies.
