Sung Hyun Park Rallies to Win CP Women’s Open
OTTAWA, Ontario (AP) — Sung Hyun Park added the Canadian Pacific Women's Open title to her U.S. Women's Open crown with a comeback victory Sunday at Ottawa Hunt.
Park birdied the final hole for a 7-under 64 and a two-stroke victory over fellow South Korean player Mirim Lee. Four strokes behind leaders Nicole Broch Larsen and Mo Martin entering the round, Park finished at 13-under 271. She won the U.S. Women's Open last month in New Jersey for her first LPGA Tour title.
Michelle Wie withdrew before the round and was taken to Ottawa Hospital for surgery to remove her appendix. Wie was tied for 23rd, six strokes back entering the day.
Larsen had a 70 to drop into a tie for third at 10 under with Cristie Kerr (69), In Gee Chun (70), Shanshan Feng (68) and Marina Alex (68). Martin was another stroke back after a 72.
Canadian star Brooke Henderson followed her course-record 63 with a 71 to tie for 12th at 7 under. The 19-year-old major champion is from nearby Smiths Falls.
