Lunn triumphs in Portugal

KAREN Lunn of Australia claimed her first Ladies' European Tour title since 1993 as she edged England's Trish Johnson by a shot at Campo Real in Portugal. Lunn shot a seven under round of 65, with an eagle and three birdies on the outward nine setting her Portugal Open victory.

Her next eight holes saw her make no further inroads, but she nailed a crucial birdie putt at the last to go 12 under.

Johnson also signed for a 65 but was one stroke short in the final analysis, while Iben Tinning of Denmark ended third following a final round of 68.
