She beat Sweden’s Anna Nordqvist by two shots and England’s Melissa Reid by three in the season-ending tournament at the Emirates Golf Club.

It was Tinning’s sixth tour victory and her first since 2005.

Holding a one shot lead over Reid and Nordqvist going down the 18th, Tinning managed to get safely on the green in three and then holed a 15-foot birdie putt for the win.

Reid, whose drive went into the woods, ended up bogeying the hole to fall into third place.
