Minjee Lee secured a maiden major title at the Evian Championship

Minjee Lee produced an epic final-round comeback to snatch a maiden major victory after a dramatic finish to the Amundi Evian Championship.

The Australian overturned a seven-stroke deficit on the final day at Evian Resort Golf Club, birdieing four of her last five holes to post a bogey-free 64 and set the clubhouse target at 18 under.

Overnight leader Jeongeun Lee6 saw her five-shot lead disappear after five bogeys in a seven-hole stretch on her front-nine, only for the Korean to fight back and birdie her final three holes to salvage a level-par 71 and join Lee at the top of the leaderboard.
