Tale, Slovakia (SportsNetwork.com) - Camilla Lennarth fired a 6-under 66 on Sunday to claim the title of the Allianz Ladies Slovak Open.

Lennarth earned her first career victory on the Ladies European Tour at 11- under-par 277.

Melissa Reid carded a 5-under 67 during her final round at Golf Resort Tale to jump into second place at 7-under par, while Hannah Ralph (68) and Sally Watson (74) shared third at 3-under.

Valentine Derrey (69), Liz Young (72), Ann-Katherin Lindner (72) and Klara Spilkova (73) tied for fifth at 2-under 286.

Lennarth and Watson entered the final round tied for the lead at 5-under, but a two-shot swing at the first put Lennarth in the lead for good as she birdied the opening hole and Watson tripped to a bogey.

Watson then posted a double-bogey 5 at the second to fall further behind and never threatened again.

Lennarth, meanwhile, parred seven straight from the second before converting an eagle at the ninth to jump to 8-under. She would go on to birdie the 11th, 15th and 18th as she cruised to the victory.
