Nuria Iturrios extended her advantage at the top of the Ladies European Tour's Order of Merit by registering her second win of the season at the inaugural Omega Dubai Moonlight Classic.
The Spaniard secured her second victory in less than a week by finishing a shot clear of German pair Esther Henseleit and Olivia Cowan on the floodlit Faldo Course at Emirates Golf Club.
Iturrios, who won the Lalla Meryem Cup in Morocco on Sunday, posted rounds of 68, 67 and 71 to end the week on 10 under at the world's first professional day-night golf tournament.
"It's amazing to win again and I'm so excited," said Iturrios. "I loved playing in the first day-night tournament and I hope to come back next year."
Iturrios started the day tied for the lead but quickly raced three clear after back-to-back birdies from the second, only for the 23-year-old to bogey the sixth and double-bogey the next to slip back into a share of the lead alongside Leona Maguire

Back-to-back birdies around the turn saw Iturrios regain top spot, before she picked up another shot at the 14th and finished with four consecutive pars to secure her third Ladies European Tour title.
Karolin Lampert finished two strokes back in fourth spot, while Maguire, who held a two-shot advantage after an opening course-record 64, finished in a tie for fifth after a final-hole bogey.
