The 23-year-old from Pamplona carded a final round 70 to hold off France's Gwladys Nocera.

Rookie Recari, who was only 90th on the money list going into the event, suffered a scare as she bogeyed the 17th but parred the last for a 14-under 274 total.

Joint overnight leader Michele Redman (72) and Karine Icher (70) tied for third a further stroke behind Nocera.

Cristie Kerr missed a chance to overtake Ai Miyazato as world number one as she finished tied for fifth with Wendy Ward.
