Charley Hull gets 2019 off to a flyer in Dubai
Last round 69 bags Fatima Bint Mubarak Ladies Open
Charley Hull went wire-to-wire to triumph at the Fatima Bint Mubarak Ladies Open in Abu Dhabi.
Charley recorded her second Ladies European Tour title after shooting a three-under 69 to finish a shot ahead of Norway's Marianne Skarpnord on -8.
"I've practised really hard over winter and it feels great to win," said Charley. "Hopefully I can get a few more wins. I'm very happy with my round so it shows that my hard work is paying off.
"I left a lot of putts out there today, but it's hard to putt when it's windy like this," said Hull after the tournament, which marks the start of the Ladies European Tour's season.
Skarpnord shot a final round of 68 at Saadiyat Beach to finish on seven under, with the duo well clear of the chasing pack.
England's Jodi Ewart Shadoff was among those who finished in a share of third on three under. Ewart Shadoff, chasing a first Ladies European Tour title, moved into a share of the lead on the 14th but blew up with two bogeys over the final three holes.
And another thing!
