Sunday, July 29, 2012
Ariya Jutanugarn continues to dominate fields across the world, this time winning the 99th Royale Cup Canadian Women's Amateur Championship by five shots at the Lethbridge Country Club.
Jutanugarn led from wire-to-wire, using a 1-over 73 on Friday to cap off a 14-under performance for the week.
She'll have bragging rights at home, beating older sister Moriya, who finished in second place at 9 under. Moriya shot a 4-under 68 on Friday to close the gap on Ariya.
Kimberly Kaufman finished in solo third at 6 under, while Angel Yin was fourth at 4 under.
With the win, Ariya receives an exemption into the 2012 CN Canadian Women's Open at the Vancouver Golf Club in late August.
Ariya is coming off a semifinal loss at the 2012 U.S. Girls' Junior, losing to eventual champion Minjee Lee.
