Ryu tops Choi to win Canadian Women's Open
Sunday, August 24, 2014
Leading since her 63 Thursday, So Yeon Ryu won her first LPGA title in about two years as she closed with 69 Sunday to claim the Canadian Pacific Women's Open in London, Ontario.
Ryu's 23-under total was two better than Na Yeon Choi and five better than Wegmans LPGA Championship winner Inbee Park as South Koreans took the top three spots.
"After I signed my card, Na Yeon asked me, 'Why don't we go to have dinner every Wednesday night,' " Ryu told Associated Press. "I think we're going to stick with that."
A two-shot swing at the 15th had pulled Choi within a shot, but Ryu birdied the 16th and finished with back-to-back pars.
Brooke MacKenzie Henderson, runner-up at the U.S. Women's Amateur earlier this month, was the low Canadian and amateur, T-46 at 2 under after a 74 Sunday.
