Wales’s Lydia Hall shot a final three-under-par round of 69 to finish joint-second at the Qatar Ladies Open.

The 28-year-old had shared the halfway lead but a disappointing third round of 72 saw her slip down the leaderboard.

She rallied on the final day to share second, on 12 under, with Sweden’s Caroline Hedwall, three behind 18-year-old winner Aditi Ashok of India.

The teenager earned her second Ladies European Tour success in her debut professional season.

“Yesterday was a little bit tough with the putter and again, to start off today, it was a bit rusty, but I got it going after the break and I’m really pleased,” Hall told the Ladies European Tour.
