WIENER NEUSTADT, Austria - Laura Davies carded a two-under 70 Sunday to earn a one-stroke win at the Uniqa Ladies Golf Open.

Davies, who won this title for the third time, finished at 11-under-par 205. The victory was Davies' 75th title worldwide.

Virginie Lagoutte-Clement posted a four-under 68 to finish one stroke back at minus-10. Alison Walshe (67) and Melissa Reid (73) shared third at nine-under- par 207 at Golfclub Fohrenwald.

Davies had two birdies and two bogeys on the front nine. Around the turn, she birdied the 11th and 12th for the second straight day.

The Englishwoman moved to 13-under with a birdie on the 15th, but she gave that shot back with a bogey at the last. Davies won for the third time this season on the Ladies European Tour.

"I was shaking. It's your legs; your legs go. If your hands and your arms go, then you're in trouble, but you feel your legs getting a bit shaky," Davies said of the pressure coming down the stretch.

"Over that bunker shot [on 18], with all the water behind, my legs were a bit shaky on that and over the putt, but I guess that's just the adrenaline and you're just excited about trying to win a golf tournament. If you didn't have that, then you wouldn't win."
