England’s Trish Johnson proved that age is no barrier to success as she won the Aberdeen Asset Management Ladies Scottish Open on a glorious final day at Archerfield Links in East Lothian.

She became the Ladies European’s Tour’s oldest winner at the age of 48.

With rounds of 66, 70 and 73, she ended on a 54-hole total of 209, seven-under-par, two strokes clear of Frenchwoman Gwladys Nocera.

Australians Rebecca Artis and Stephanie Na were a stroke back in a share of third place with Scotland’s Sally Watson on four-under-par.

With a final round 70 the 2013 champion, Catriona Matthew moved up from equal 30th into a tie for 13th place.

The event will be held at Dundonald Links in Ayrshire next year.
