25 September 2016 06:08

England's Georgia Hall and Sophie Walker finished joint third as Spaniard Azahara Munoz won the Andalucia Costa del Sol Open.

Walker holed out from 138 yards for an eagle at the 18th hole, to secure a round of 71 and move from joint fifth to level with Hall on five under par at the Aloha Golf Club in Marbella. Hall finished the tournament with a four-under 68.

Munoz, who lives 10 minutes from the course, clinched victory by making par at the last when closest challenger Beth Allen finished with a bogey to lose out by one shot.

Spain's Munoz finished on 10 under par after a closing 70 and American Allen on nine under following her level-par 72. Hall and Walker were fourth shots further adrift, with fellow English player Florentyna Parker finishing fifth on four under.

Victory for Munoz ensured her fourth Ladies European Tour title.
