A SWEDISH golf starlet is celebrating a family double after she claimed victory in the Ladies British Open Amateur Stroke Play Championship at the weekend.

Linn Grant’s victory at North Berwick Golf Club saw her lift the trophy on the same course that her grandfather James won the Scottish Boys Championship 49 years ago.

The 18-year-old birdied the final two holes of her final round to post a one-under-par 72 and claim victory by three strokes over Hannah Screen and Annabel Wilson, finishing the championships on four-under-par.

It was also a season’s Scottish double for the teenager, who had her father John as her caddie, after she won the Scottish Women’s Open Stroke Play Championship at Royal Troon in April.

Grant shot a second round 68, the lowest of the championship, and found herself in front by one shot after a third round 71.

She stuttered somewhat on the final day and was one behind with six holes to play.

While others faltered in the blustery conditions, the young Swede, who last month competed in the Junior Solheim Cup, produced a stunning finish as she holed from 12 feet for a birdie at the 17th and then drove the green at the par four 18th.

Screen and Wilson tied for second place on one-under-par with Olivia Winning fourth, one-over-par.

Grant said: “It is amazing to win over the same course where my grandfather won in 1958.

“This win is definitely right up there with the best things I have done in my career.

“I am still at High School in Helsingborg but next year I am going to college in America."

And Grant said that she hopes to "eventually" join the professional ranks.
