The 26-year-old, from Pamplona, beat America’s Austin Ernst and Angela Stanford with a two-shot victory at the Lorena Ochoa Invitational in Mexico City.

The victory comes just four weeks after winning her first ever LPGA Tour title in South Korea.

“I am very happy to be here and to get my second victory,” said a beaming Ciganda. “It’s wonderful to play here in Mexico and I honestly don’t have any words.
“I love the golf course, the people, and it’s an honour to be here. I’ve been playing really good all year long and to end this year with these two victories gives me a lot of confidence, I am very happy.”

Ciganda climbed three spots to 13th on the LPGA money list and remained 23rd in the women’s world rankings.

She added: “I just have to follow this same path, same strategy, and enjoy … I’m just excited about going back to Spain and celebrating with family and friends.”
