Blum started the third and final day of the Golf Vlaanderen LETAS Trophy with a one shot lead after opening with rounds of 69-67, and despite some final day wobbles managed to hold on to claim victory by the same margin.

After an early birdie, Blum was clearly the player to beat and it was fellow WPGA Tour of Australasia regular Momoka Kobori of New Zealand who looked the most likely challenger.

But the 24-year-old Blum managed to hold on and sign for a three-over round of 75, with Kobori in a four-way tie for second.

“I was very nervous the last few holes and just tried to focus on my breathing,” Blum, who finished the tournament on five-under, told the circuit’s website. “I had no idea where I sat on the leaderboard, so I just had to keep doing my thing and I’m glad it was enough.”

Having played the summer at home before heading to Europe, Blum has played a hectic schedule involving plenty of travel, and after her success with brother Nick as caddie, she will enjoy some time off.

“I’m beyond excited, I actually head to Croatia for a few days which will be a great spot to celebrate, and then going to see Ed Sheeran at Wembley so I’ve really timed the win well,” she said.

Blum now sits in fourth on the Order of Merit, with the top-five likely to received Ladies European Tour cards for next season.
