CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH - SWEDEN vs. GERMANY
The German pair in the foursome match - Alexandra Fosterling and Helen Tamy Kreuzer - came out strong and were up on the front nine. After the turn, Swedish pairing of Maja Stark and Beatrice Wallin played its way back and closed the match at the 15th green.
Linn Grant was three holes ahead teeing up on the par-five 16th. She hit her second shot left in a greenside bunker. Her opponent, Paula Schulz-Hanssen, managed a par and that left Linn with a five-foot putt for the championship. Dead center, and the European Ladies´ Team Championship trophy will stay in Sweden for one more year.
