Played at Siam Country Club, Chonburi - the 44-year-old former Ricoh Women's British Open champion, ranked No 13 in the world, covered the last 36 holes in a brilliant 14-under-par with repeating rounds of seven-under 65.

The Scot from North Berwick, who earned $101,512 had started slowly in Thailand with a 76 but began to pick up the pace with a one-under second-round 72. Then came her birdie fest over the final two rounds in which she had one eagle, 15 birdies, one double bogey and one bogey.

In her final round Catriona birdied the fourth, fifth, seventh and ninth to turn in 32. Further birdies followed at the 10th, 11th, 12th and 15th. The only blemish on her closing card was a bogey at the 14th.

Comrie's Carly Booth strung together her four steadiest rounds for some time. She finished joint 36th in the star-studded field with scores of 72, 74, 74 and 72 for 292. She earned $8,804.

Yorkshire's US-based Jodi Ewart totalled 294 for joint 45th place with scores of 74, 75, 73 and 72. She earned $5,937.

Sweden's Anna Nordqvist, who won the British women's open amateur championship at North Berwick in 2008, won the Thailand title and the $225,000 first prize with a 15-under-par total of 273 (66-72-67-68). It was her first win since her rookie pro season of 2009.

World No 1 Inbee Park (South Korea) was runner-up on 275 - two shots ahead of Catriona Matthew - and collected $139, 923.
