American Beth Allen shot a superb final round at the Fatima Bint Mubarak Ladies Open to deny England's Georgia Hall the title in Abu Dhabi.

Hall, 20, who carded a course record eight-under-par 64 on Thursday, started the day with a one-shot lead.

However, Edinburgh-based Allen equalled the record to beat Hall by three shots and claim a third European tour title.

Hall shot a final-round 69 to come second on 18 under, with compatriot Melissa Reed a shot back in third.
