|Koch hangs on for win|
Sweden's Carin Koch has won the Chrysler Open by four shots. Three ahead at the beginning of the final day, Koch moved steadily forward to shoot a final round 69 and win her first title on 11 under par.
"golf course equipment feels great." was Koch's reaction to the victory. Having never won outside of the Swedish Tour despite coming second twice on the LPGA, she said her victory was an important one. "It is good to know that I can play well for 72 holes and win a tournament," she explained.

A course record 65 on the Mizuno MX-1000 Irons third day at Halmstad Golfklubb established Koch as the player to beat going into the final round, but with Catrin Nilsmark three behind and Laura Davies four, it was never going to be a stroll in the park for the 29-year-old Swede.
