Eagle-eyed American Mo Martin Wins Women's British Open

Eagle-eyed American Mo Martin Wins Women's British Open

SOUTHPORT, England (AP) — Mo Martin hit the best shot of her life, and it made her a major champion Sunday in the Women’s British Open.

Martin hit a 3-wood that hit the pin on the par-5 closing hole at Royal Birkdale, settling 6 feet for an eagle. An hour later, that turned out to be the winner when Inbee Park and Shanshan Feng both couldn’t stay under par.

Martin closed with an even-par 72 on such a windy afternoon that no one managed to break par in the final round. The 31-year-old American was the only player to finish under par.

Park and Feng each had a chance to force a playoff, but neither could birdie the 17th and 18th holes, both par 5s.
