Popov Becomes First German To Win Women's Major At British Open

World number 304 Sophia Popov became the first German to win a women's major with victory in the British Open, just a year after being on the verge of quitting golf.

Three ahead at the start of the final round, the 27-year-old finished on seven under par 277 after carding a 68. Thailand's Jasmine Suwannapura was second, two shots off the pace.

Popov was in tears even before she hit the final putt and was overcome with emotion as she left the final green at Royal Troon.
