South Korea's Mi Jung Hur shot a phenomenal 66 to win the Ladies Scottish Open at The Renaissance Club.

The 29-year-old sealed a four-shot win sinking six birdies in the last ten including four in a row from the ninth hole on a very damp course.

The weather could not dampen the mood for the Korean as she finished 20 under with the victory ending her five-year=long wait for a title. 

Overnight leader Thailand's Moriya Jutanugarn carded a 71 and finished second alongside Jeongeun Lee.

It was not to be for home favourite Carly Booth, whose two late bogeys meant she finished joint ninth at ten under.

England's Laura Davies, Georgia Hall, Bronte Law and Charley Hull were a further five strokes further back.

This was the last chance to battle it out for places in the Solheim Cup team and an 11 under ensured a last minute qualification for Anne van Dam of the Netherlands. Also in the team are Charley Hull and Georgia Hall as well as Spain's Azahara Munoz and Carlota Ciganda, Germany's Caroline Masson and the Swedish pair of Caroline Hedwall and Anna Nordqvist.

Captain Catriona Matthew will reveal her four wildcard choices on Monday.
