Sweden's Madelene Sagstrom has won her maiden LPGA Tour title after Japan's Nasa Hataoka missed a three-foot putt at the final hole in Boca Raton, Florida.

Sagstrom expected a playoff after sinking a testing six-footer for par before watching on with surprise as the Japanese hit a weak putt that dribbled right of the hole.

"I just told myself keep fighting. It will happen if it's meant to happen, and it did," Sagstrom said on clinching her first LPGA Tour victory at the age of 27.

With a two-under-par 70, she became the 12th Swede to win on the LPGA Tour.

Sagstrom finished at 17-under 271, while Hataoka (69) was second on 16-under.

The LPGA Tour will take a one-week break before resuming in Australia with the Vic Open and Women's Australian Open.
