Prague, Czech Republic (SportsNetwork.com) - Julie Greciet fired a 5-under 66 on Sunday and rolled to a 2-stroke win at the Sberbank Golf Masters.
Greciet collected her first career win on the Ladies European Tour at 17- under-par 196.
Greciet, who was the second-round leader, birdied the first hole to move to minus-13, but as she parred her next seven holes, Amy Boulden opened her round with five birdies over her first six holes to meet her atop the leaderboard.
Greciet, however, regained sole possession of the lead with three straight birdies from the ninth, and later reached 18-under with consecutive gains at the 14th and 15th before play was suspended for an hour due to rain.
When play resumed, Greciet followed a pair of pars at Nos. 16 and 17 with a bogey at the 18th to finish at 17-under and claim the win.
Lee-Anne Pace (65) took second place at 15-under, while Boulden (65) ended in third at minus-14.
Anne-Lise Caudal (62), Nikki Garrett (66) and Sophie Giquel-Bettan (67) shared fourth place at Golf Park Plzen at 12-under 201.
