Mi Jung Hur closed with a terrific five-under-par 66 to secure a four-shot victory in the Ladies Scottish Open at a soggy Renaissance Club.

The South Korean posted six birdies in the last 10 holes – including four in a row from the ninth – to finish 20 under and end her five-year wait for a title.

Third-round leader Moriya Jutanugarn carded 71 to tie for second with Jeongeun Lee6.

Two late bogeys saw Scotland’s Carly Booth finish joint ninth on 10 under.

English quartet Laura Davies, Georgia Hall, Bronte Law and Charley Hull were five strokes further back.

With qualification for the Solheim Cup now closed following the final round in East Lothian, Europe captain Catriona Matthew will reveal her four wildcard picks on Monday for the September showpiece against the United States at Gleneagles.

England duo Charley Hull and Georgia Hall, Spain’s Azahara Munoz, Caroline Masson of Germany, Swedish pair Anna Nordqvist and Caroline Hedwall, Spain’s Carlota Ciganda and Dutch player Anne van Dam have all qualified automatically for the team.
