In a remarkable turn of events on the back-nine, Sebastian Soberberg's collapse paved the way for Linn Grant to secure another victory in the Scandinavian Mixed on the DP World Tour.

Despite holding an eight-shot lead after 54 holes at Vasatorps Golfklubb in Sweden, and leading Grant by 11 shots at the beginning of the final round, Soberberg faltered on the last six holes, finishing four-over and relinquishing the title in stunning fashion. Grant staged the largest final-round comeback in the history of the DP World Tour.

Soberberg's collapse reached its climax with a missed short putt on the 72nd hole, narrowly avoiding a playoff as the ball horseshoed around the cup and stayed out. Grant learned of her victory for the second time in three years while on the driving range in Helsingborg, as Soberberg appeared visibly disappointed.

“I’m so surprised,” Grant said. “Standing here, now as a winner again in my hometown. Amazing.” At this event two years ago, the 24-year-old made history as the inaugural female winner on the DP World Tour. Additionally, she has secured one victory on the LPGA Tour.

“Honestly I just tried to go out today and give myself an opportunity. I didn’t even think that I had the chance of winning – 11 shots is a huge gap,” she added. “So I just wanted to go out, have fun and make as many birdies as possible. And enjoy it with my brother on the bag and being at home. It turned out to be an incredible day.”

On track to secure his second DP World Tour title, Soderberg notched two birdies and two bogeys in his initial seven holes, with a third bogey on the eighth narrowing the gap to the field. Grant exhibited sensational performance in front of her home audience on Sunday. She recorded six birdies within 10 holes and executed a chip-in for another birdie on the 18th hole, establishing a clubhouse lead of 17-under.

With a one-shot lead at 18-under, Soberberg positioned his tee shot in the fairway on the par-4 18th hole. However, his second shot became lodged in a greenside bunker. As a result, he scored a six on the hole, concluding with a 77. Grant clinched victory with an impressive 65.

“It’s amazing playing on home soil and seeing a lot of players play so well," Grant added. "I think it shows all the fans coming out here that we really enjoy playing at home. We’re all very happy at the moment. Just finding a way to celebrate tonight and have a nice week off.”
