Christine Wolf has won her first Ladies European Tour title after shooting the joint lowest round on the final day at the Indian Open.

Wolf's three-under-par 69 saw her finish on 11 under, three points clear of Norway's Marianne Skarpnord.

The 30-year-old nearly won the tournament last year as she took the lead heading into the final day but a double bogey halted her chances. Wolf said she was "relieved" it wasn't a repeat performance.

Wolf said: "I didn't think, in my wildest dreams, that I would actually pull through and I'm just excited right now."

England's Meghan MacLaren finished on 72 to finish four shots behind despite only being one off the lead heading into the final day.

England's other representative Charlotte Thompson and Scotland's Catriona Matthew also shot 69 but finished down the field.

Wolf's junior caddie blamed himself for her loss last year and she said that he was just as excited as her at her win.

Wolf said: "He texted me all of last year and even at Christmas time.

"He said, 'I'm so sorry, ma'am, I think it was my fault'. I said: 'Well the only thing you could have done differently was hit that shot for me', so it was nice having him there and I think he's super excited as well."
