Spain's Carlota Ciganda on Saturday became the first player since Laura Davies in 1985 to win both the Ladies European Tour money list and the Rookie of the Year title in the same season.

Carlota Ciganda: Rookie of the year

The 22-year-old from Pamplona - world famous for its annual bull run through the streets - secured top spot with a 10th place finish at the Omega Dubai Masters.

China's world number six Shanshan Feng won the event by a runaway five-stroke margin from Dutch player Dewi Claire Schreefel, herself four clear of third-placed pair Becky Brewerton and Caroline Masson.

Feng, who at the LPGA Championship in June became the first Chinese golfer male or female to win a major, shot a closing 69 for a tournament record 21 under par total of 267.

With Ciganda climbing through the field with a 68 Masson had to finish joint second to deny her the Order of Merit crown, but a triple bogey on the 12th and bogey at the 17th left her too much to do.

Welsh Solheim Cup player Brewerton finished with a 65 to tie with Masson on 12 under.

Feng, already five clear when she teed off, told Sky Sports: "It's my first time in Dubai and now I am in love with it.

"I was just playing my own golf. I said at the start if I shot five under nobody could catch me. We had a little more wind and it was tougher to play, so three under was not a bad score."
