‘A winner again, in my hometown. Amazing’

Grant started the day 11 shots behind runaway 54-hole leader Sebastian Söderberg but as he slipped backwards throughout the afternoon, the 2022 Volvo Car Scandinavian Mixed winner made seven birdies and no bogeys to set the clubhouse target at 17 under.

And when her compatriot Söderberg finished his final-round 77 with a double bogey at the 18th to miss out on a play-off, Grant earned her second DP World Tour title in dramatic circumstances, by a single shot.

“Very mixed emotions,” she said. “I honestly feel terrible for Sebastian at the moment. I don’t even have words for it. I can’t imagine how he feels. At the same time, I am just surprised.

“Standing now here, as a winner again, in my hometown is amazing.”
