Amsterdam, Netherlands (Sports Network) - Holly Clyburn carded a 2-under 71 on Sunday and wrapped up her maiden Ladies European Tour victory at the Deloitte Ladies Open in Holland.

Clyburn, a rookie, finished three rounds at the International in Amsterdam at 8-under-par 211, three shots clear of Charley Hull, who tallied a final-round 69.

"I'm flabbergasted," said the 22-year-old Clyburn, who was playing in just her fourth LET event of the season. "I played great golf all week pretty much. I just relaxed, didn't get nervous all day and kept in my own little bubble."

Carin Koch (71) placed third at 4-under, while 2012 champion Carlota Ciganda (74), overnight leader Camilla Lennarth (77) and Bree Arthur (71) shared fourth at minus-3.

Clyburn began the final round a single stroke off the pace and bogeyed the second hole before promptly taking control of the tournament. The Curtis Cup winner recorded back-to-back birdies from the fifth with putts of 15 and 10 feet, respectively, then drained a 15-foot birdie effort at the 12th to create more separation.
