    Agadir, Morocco (Sports Network) - Ariya Jutanugarn closed with her third straight 4-under 67 on Sunday to earn a 3-stroke win at the Lalla Meryem Cup.

    Jutanugarn finished at 14-under-par 270 to earn her first Ladies European Tour title. This is her rookie season on tour, and she had started the year with a share of second at the season's first event in Australia.

    She was on fire from the start. Jutanugarn birdied the first three holes to jump to 13-under. She birdied the seventh at Golf de l'Ocean, but gave that stroke back with a bogey on the par-3 ninth.

    Jutanugarn carded back-to-back birdies at 10 and 11 and was alone in the lead at 15-under. She tripped to a double-bogey at the par-5 15th, but birdied the 17th to end at minus-14.

    Beth Allen had four birdies and a bogey in her round of 3-under 68. She shared second with third-round leader Charley Hull at minus-11. Hull had an even-par round of 71 with two bogeys on the front nine and two birdies on the back nine.

    Katie Burnett posted a 2-under 69 to grab fourth place at 10-under-par 274.
