Maiden tour win for Keating
Australia's Stacey Keating won the Tenerife Open de Espana Femenino following a sudden death play-off against Caroline Masson.
Keating secured her first Ladies European Tour victory with the win.
Keating holed a five-foot putt on the first extra hole to beat Germany's Masson after the pair had tied on a nine-under-par score of 279 in regulation play at Golf Las Americas.
The 26-year-old managed to rein Masson in after surrendering a one-shot lead yesterday, the German dropping three shots in four poor holes across the front nine today.
"It was a tough day out there and Caroline and I both played well," Keating told ladieseuropeantour.com.
"It was nice to take it to a play-off and then get over the line.
"All day it was very close and Caroline holed some putts when she needed to so it was nice and it's always nice to birdie the play-off hole."
Masson hit her second play-off shot into a water hazard, with her third coming up short in the rough, and the South African Women's Open champion was emotional afterwards.
She said: "If you hit the worst shot of the week in a play-off it's a bit unlucky.
"If you hit a shot like that you don't deserve to win and Stacey played well.
"She made birdie and just congratulations to her."
Early tournament leader Nikki Garrett rallied to pick up five birdies today but had to settle for fourth place behind Britain's Trish Johnson after carding 281 overall.
Johnson said: "To shoot five under on the last day in pretty tricky conditions, you've got to be fairly happy.
"I'm a little bit disappointed to come up one short, I guess."
Spain's Carlota Ciganda took a four-way share of fifth place after picking up six birdies between the fifth hole and her last on Sunday.
