MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — England's Laura Davies shot a final-round 5-under 68 and beat Spain's Tania Elosegui by one stroke Sunday for her second Women's Australian Open title.

Davies, the 2004 champion, saved her best golf for the weekend, going 11-under-par over the final two rounds at Metropolitan Golf Club. However, she trailed by one stroke after a bogey on the 18th hole and won when Elosegui finished with a double-bogey.

The 45-year-old Davies finished with a 7-under total of 285. Australia's Karrie Webb was tied for sixth after a 74, five strokes back.
