Klara Spilkova won the Lalla Meryem Cup in Morocco on Sunday, claiming her first title on the Ladies European Tour.

Klara did it with a bogey-free final round of 66, that included six birdies - the last two on the 13th and 14th holes. She parred out from there, including sinking a testy par putt on the final hole.

Suzann Pettersen had a chance to catch Spilkova and force a playoff by birdying the last hole, but didn't. Pettersen finished in second place, one stroke behind Spilkova's winning total of 280 (8-under par).

Spilkova is 22 years old and from the Czech Republic. As you can probably tell from the photos, she also does some modeling.

Prior to the Lalla Meryem Cup, Klara had 92 career starts on the LET. She turned pro in 2010, when she was only 17 years old.

In her 92 prior starts on the LET, Klara had 11 career Top 10 finishes, and her 66 in the final round in Morocco matches her career low on the LET.
