Anna Nordqvist was two up after 11 holes on fellow-Swede and top seed Caroline Hedwall in the 18-hole final of the British women's open amateur championship at North Berwick this afternoon.
In a quality final played at a breakneck pace by modern standards - 90min for the first nine holes as both players pulled their own clubs - Nordqvist birdied the first, second, third, eighth, 10th and 11th.
Hedwall birdied the first, fourth and eighth to be one down at the turn and two down after 10.
The 11th was halved in par 5s.
Hedwall birdied the 12th to get back to one down but Nordqvist hit back with yet another birdie to go two up at the 13th ... two up with five to play!
