England's Laura Davies has finished the season on top of the women's European Tour money list for a record seventh time.

Davies topped the New Star order of merit with prize-money of £317,000. The highlight of the 43-year-old's season was victory - her first for over two years - in the SAS Masters in Norway. She finished runner-up at six tournaments.

"It's a lovely way to cap off the season," said Davies, who started the year missing seven out of eight cuts in America. "The first time I was No 1 was in my rookie year, back in 1985. I think I won £17,000 and felt like a millionaire.

"Winning in Norway was the main highlight and finishing second in the Evian Masters [the second richest tournament in women's golf] was also important."
