  • Evian Championship: American Amy Olson moves two ahead on day three

It has taken 18 years on the LPGA Tour and 77 attempts but Angela Stanford finally landed her first major title, claiming a one-shot victory to win The Evian Championship.

At age 40, and 15 years after she was runner-up at the U.S. Women's Open, Stanford's wild final few holes gave her a 12-under total of 272.

Before Olson's missed bogey putt, Mo Martin and Sei Young Kim each had birdie chances on the 18th hole that would have gotten them into a playoff with Stanford as well, but both just missed to finish the tournament at 11 under, Martin with a closing 70 and Kim with a 72.

Canada's Brooke Henderson finished in a tie for 10th place at 8 under.

After Olson was outright or joint leader all day - briefly with Stanford at 13 under with four holes to play - she three-putted to end her championship with a career-best result.

Stanford earned a $577,500 check for making her 14th career top-10 finish in majors a winning one. "You play by faith and hope and hope it works out for you and it finally did".

Stanford was signing autographs on Sunday as leader Olson reached the green at 18.

"I don't really know yet but the beginning is pretty good", Stanford said when asked how it felt to have won a major.

"It's disappointing to finish like that", the 26-year-old Olson said after a round consisting of two birdies, three bogeys and the double-bogey.

Playing in the second-last group, Stanford went eagle-double bogey-birdie from the 15th, then saw her birdie chance brush the hole on No. 18.

The leaderboard changed little on the front nine until Olson made bogey at the par-3 8th. She padded her lead to three with a tap-in for birdie at the par-5 13th. She stayed as joint leader with Kim on 13 under - three shots clear - only when Kim's putt from off the same green hit the pin and stayed out. Soon, Stanford was punching the air with her right fist on sinking a 25-footer for birdie on the 17th.

Refusing to check the leaderboard all day, Olson said she only knew on the 18th tee where she stood.

"I just kept telling myself, You just got to be who you are". Forced to punch out rather than go for the green on the par 4, her second shot came up short of the fairway in more rough. "I can't wait to be out here full time".
