Helsingborg, Sweden (Sports Network) - Rebecca Artis closed with a 3-under 69 on Sunday to come from behind and win The Helsingborg Open.

Third-round leader Caroline Hedwall stumbled to a 3-over 75 to end one back at minus-7. She had a double-bogey on the fifth, and bogeys at 10 and 11. Hedwall birdied the 17th, but parred the last to lose by one.
