Anna Nordqvist Wins Evian Championship

Sweden's Anna Nordqvist claimed the first women's major title by a European since 2013 with a play-off victory at the Evian Championship in France.

The 30-year-old world number 13, five strokes behind overnight, carded two eagles in a six-under 66 to finish nine under with American Brittany Altomare.

In torrential rain, Nordqvist won at the first extra hole with a bogey five.

The event was reduced to 54 holes after Thursday's opening round was abandoned because of high winds and heavy rain.
