Park Fires 64, Wins CP Women’s Open

Sung Hyun Park fired a 7-under-par 64 on Sunday at Ottawa Hunt and Golf Club and captured the Canadian Pacific Women’s Open.


 
Park, who won the U.S. Women’s Open earlier this year, finished at 13 under par for the tournament, three ahead of Mirim Lee (68).

Park’s bogey-free round included seven birdies, four of which came during a five-hole stretch (holes 6 through 10) that put Park at the top of the leaderboard for the first time all week.

“I think this golf course fits my game. My shots and putting was good, said Park. “I think this week was just perfect for me. That’s how I got the confidence on this golf course.”

Runner-up Lee finished at 11 under, aided by an eagle on the final hole which moved her beyond a logjam of eight players tied for second (-10) and third (-9).

Five players were at 10-under, and tied for third, including three who held at least a share of the lead after the first (Marina Alex, 68), second (In Gee Chun, 70) and third (Nicole Broch Larsen, 71) rounds.

Cristie Kerr (69) and Shanshan Feng (68) also finished at 10-under.

Mo Martin (72), who held a share of the lead with Broch Larsen after 54 holes, finished at 9-under and tied for eighth along with Hyo Joo Kim (66) and Jane Park (65).

The win earned Park $337,500 giving her a total of $1,878,615 on the season. With two wins, including a major, she is a virtual lock to win Rookie of the Year honors.
