France's Pauline Roussin fired an eight-under-par 64 in the final round to seal a four-shot victory at the Aramco Team Series -- Singapore yesterday.

The 22-year-old had a flawless last day at Laguna National Golf Resort Club where she had eight birdies in the third and final round.

It took until the seventh hole for the Frenchwoman to make her first birdie, but she then rolled in four in a row from the ninth to 13th.

Roussin got three birdies on the trot on holes 14, 15 and 16 to reach a total of 15-under 201 and win the individual crown.

"It's special. I had my first win with my mum on the bag and she's here this week and my coach is here as well, so it's very special and having my boyfriend on the bag," she said.

It was the second title on the Ladies European Tour (LET) for Roussin, who won the 2021 Didriksons Skatfo Open just weeks after turning professional.

"My mom was on the bag for the first time [her first win] and this week was my boyfriend. I think it tells a lot about the mindset that I want to keep on the course.

"It's that having fun part and being me, and doing things in a good mood, not letting the game affect that."

American Danielle Kang finished second on 205 after a final round of 68 which included an eagle, four birdies and two bogeys.

World No.1 Lydia Ko ended the week in third place on 206 after a 66 in the final round.

Ko said: "My goal going into today was to try and post a low one and I actually thought six-under would be a round that I'd walk off today feeling like I did a good job.

"Everybody was playing really well and I feel like you can take advantage, especially on some of the par-fives. I got a really good start on the first three holes, my putter was definitely something I needed to thank."

Swedish pair Elin Arvidsson and Linn Grant were tied fourth on seven-under alongside Czech Klara Davidson Spilkova.

Three players finished joint seventh with Scotland's Michele Thomson, Thailand's Trichat Cheenglab and England's Eleanor Givens on 210.

France's Agathe Sauzon was 10th on 211.

On Friday, Team Wolf, featuring South Africa's Casandra Alexander, England's Eleanor Givens and amateur Katsuko Blalock of Japan, claimed the team title.
