Wales' Becky Brewerton has secured her third title on the Ladies European Tour with victory at the Tenerife Ladies Match Play.

Brewerton, 28, had beaten Kristie Smith and England's Laura Davies in the matchplay stages of the tournament.

And the Abergele golfer shot 68 in the strokeplay final to secure the top prize worth £35,300.

The round bettered by one shot the scores posted by Xarlota Ciganda and Nikki Garrett.

Brewerton had to wait after her completing her round to see whether Ciganda or Garrett could birdie the par-five last to force a tie,

But Spanish newcomer Ciganda, who was making her professional debut, found water and Australian Garrett missed a 15-foot putt.

Their pars gave the title to Brewerton, who added to her 2007 English Open and 2009 Spanish Open wins.

"It's nice to finally get a win and obviously it's been a while since I've won, so it's a brilliant feeling," said Brewerton.

"I think Tenerife is a place where I always get a little bit of luck as well. I holed a chip shot, holed a bunker shot, I had a couple of nice bounces out there as well."

England's Rebecca Hudson was fourth after a round of 70, with Brewerton's fellow Welsh player Lydia Hall a shot further back in fifth place.
