England's Georgia Hall and Sophie Walker finished joint third as Azahara Munoz won the Andalucia Costa del Sol Open de Espana Femenino by a stroke.

The event was decided on the final hole when United States' Beth Allen only managed a bogey as her Spanish rival scored par for a 10-under total.

Walker, 32, produced a brilliant eagle on the 18th from 138 yards to finish on five under with 20-year-old Hall.

England's Florentyna Parker finished fifth on four under.

Munoz, who won her fourth Ladies European Tour title, lives 10 minutes from the Aloha Golf Club in Marbella.

She said: "To be able to play here and just sleep at home, it's amazing.

"At the beginning of the week, I was so stressed out and so anxious and finally, when I got to the first tee on Thursday, I felt so much better.

"It is amazing to win in front of everybody and so many people came out, so I'm really grateful to them."
