Azahara Muñoz falls in the Scotland playoff

The American Stacy Lewis, with a remarkable birdie in the tiebreaker, won the Scottish Women's Golf Open, played in Aberdeen and on the LPG circuit.

The American Stacy Lewis, with a notable 'birdie' in the tiebreaker, won the Scottish Women's Golf Open, played in Aberdeen and on the LPGA circuit, after a fourth day in which four players finished the 72 holes of the tournament evenly , among them the Malaga-born Azahara Muñoz, who had started as leader. Lewis, who was world No. 1 in 2013 and had not won a tournament since 2017, won the Scottish Open with an excellent putt of about 15 meters on the 18th hole (par 4), where he started the tiebreaker, winning a shot at same; something that the other three involved could not do.

The 35-year-old American, whose greatest successes are the 'big' Kraft Nabisco in 2011 and the British Golf Open in 2013, who suffered scoliosis at the age of 11, added her thirteenth LPGA Tour victory in Aberdeen , and that he did not complete a good fourth round, which he signed with a card with 72 (+1), having come out with -6, one blow from the, at that time leader, Azahara Muñoz. Azahara recovered from a terrible start to the day, where she was lost and very close to 'throwing away' the tournament: 2 bogeys (hole 1, 9) and a double-bogey (6), they took her from -7 with which she had started the fourth round to a haunting -3 after the first nine holes; and three impacts of the then leaders.

But the Málaga-born woman reacted in the second section (the only player to not commit any bogey in the last nine holes), and with 2 birdies she was already in a shared lead (hole 15) from which she did not get off the hook and, with a notable putt in on the 18th (73 in the fourth round), she got into the 'play-off' along with Danish Emily Ktistine Pedersen (68) and Americans Cheyenne Knight (70) and Stacy Lewis (72). In the tiebreaker, on the 18th hole, he did not find a fairway, to then leave the ball off the green and, despite making a remarkable putt, or could more than complete par (4). They also did not go beyond the pair Pedersen and Knight, the latter with a 'putt' for the 'birdie' more affordable even than the one made by Lewis. Good tournament, however, for Azahara Muñoz, who touched a triumph that he fought until the last blow, but that surely escaped him with his bad start to the last day, 444 444
