A sensational display from Welwyn Garden City golfer Hannah Burke saw her triumph at the Tipsport Golf Masters in the Czech Republic to secure her first Ladies European Tour victory.

The 27-year-old fired a bogey-free final round of seven under par 64 to come from four shots behind the leader to take the honours on Sunday.

Burke fired rounds of 68, 68 and 64 for a total of 200, 13 under par on the par-71 Golf Park Pilsen course.

Following her success, Burke said: “I’m absolutely lost for words.

“I didn’t really focus too much on winning.

“I had a little goal set each day and went out to achieve them and I’ve come out on top, so it feels good.”
