Halmstad. Sweden’s Linn Grant made history yesterday by becoming the first woman to win a men’s European Tour tournament, courtesy of a nine-shot win over her main challengers at the Scadinavian Mixed in Sweden. The tournament won by the 22-year-old golfer brought together men from the DP World Tour circuit and women from the Ladies European Tour (LET) on the same course. It is the third title in Grant’s record this season. “I hope that people have recognition for women’s golf, that there are more sponsors in the LET and that this serves to stimulate it,” she declared.
