Linn Grant secures victory on DP World Tour with another surprising ending

Linn Grant of Sweden made a triumphant return by chipping in for birdie on the final hole Sunday to win the Volvo Car Scandinavian Mixed for the second time in her career. The tournament, co-sanctioned by the European Tour and Ladies European Tour, is unique as both men and women play on the same course for the same trophy and purse, with women playing from a shorter set of tees.

Grant had an impressive final round, carding a 7-under 65 to secure a one-shot victory over Sebastian Soderberg and Calum Hill. Soderberg missed a short putt on the 18th hole that would have forced a playoff, ultimately giving Grant the win.

Calum Hill put up a solid fight, birdieing three of his last six holes to finish with a 69 and tie for second place alongside Soderberg. Despite the dramatic finish, it was Linn Grant who emerged victorious, capturing her second Volvo Car Scandinavian Mixed title in front of her hometown crowd.

The tournament was held in Helsingborg, Sweden and was played at Barsebäcken Golf Club. The final round saw heavy rainfall throughout the day which made playing conditions challenging but did not deter any players from giving their best performance.

Grant spoke about her unexpected win saying that she went out on Sunday with the goal of having fun and making birdies, not expecting to win given the deficit she faced. She was thrilled to be able to perform well in front of her home crowd and win this prestigious tournament once again.
