We find out what’s in the bag of Linn Grant, the first woman to win on the DP World Tour.
Sweden’s Linn Grant made history at the Volvo Scandinavian Mixed as she produced a masterclass to win by a whopping nine shots over compatriot and tournament host Henrik Stenson and Scotsman Marc Warren.
The 22-year-old led by two shots heading into the final round before shooting a superb eight-under 64 for victory.
Linn was born just down the Swedish coast in Helsingborg, where her grandfather James Grant, also a professional golfer, emigrated from Scotland.
“I’m just proud of myself and really happy,” she said. “I just hope people recognise women’s golf, with more sponsors, and this pumps up the women’s game a little bit more.”
The event, which has been played since 1991, was co-sanctioned by the Ladies European Tour in 2020 and rebranded the Scandinavian Mixed, with both male and female golfers competing in the event which is hosted by Ryder Cup captain Henrik Stenson and Solheim Cup legend Annika Sorenstam.

Grant, who only turned pro at the end of last year and came into the event ranked 156th in the world, said she was motivated to beat the men.
“It’s a nice feeling and the whole weekend it just felt like it was the girls against the guys and whoever picks up that trophy represents the field.”
Let’s take a look at the golf equipment Ping staffer Grant used for her momentous victory.
