Linn Grant (24) delighted many with her performance at the Volvo Car Scandinavian Mixed, where she achieved a nine-stroke victory at the event featuring professionals from the men's and women's Tours. In a media interview, Grant stressed that she still does not understand what success she has achieved.

Many eyes were fixed on her since few expected such an outcome. “To be honest, the significance of it still hasn’t sunk in,” -Grant said. “Obviously it was a huge personal win, massive, but I don’t think I realised how many eyes were on me that week.

I think that as players we all know our best games, how good we could be, and it’s just about being on your best game to win. I felt comfortable with my game all week, in fact all year”.

Media reaction

The media reacted differently to her success in this tournament.

Many emphasized that the inequality of the teeing grounds was the reason why the Swede won. She believes that this cannot be the main reason. Grant is looking forward to the future and hopes to participate in even more similar events.

“There was a lot said about us having different tees but ultimately you still had to hit the shots. It’s tough to set up a tournament like that so that it’s totally fair. I’d love to see more dual events between the men’s and women’s tour.

I think it’s fun to watch because you get to see how differently we play the same course. Plus there are obvious advantages of sharing set-up costs for the two tours, and from the women’s perspective we’ve got the ready-made crowds there, which we sometimes lack, so it makes sense.

More than anything else it’s just fun to do something different”. 6 “There was a lot said about us having different tees but ultimately you still had to hit the shots,” she concluded. Source: Golfmonthly
