August 27, 2017 Embed from Getty Images

Sung Hyun Park fired the round of the day on Sunday, 7-under 64, to win in Canada, beating Mirim Lee by two shots.

“I think it was a perfect game today,” she said. “There were no mistakes today, and I think it was perfect.”

This was her seventh top-10 finish of the year including her win at the U.S. Open earlier in the year, meaning she is almost certain to win the LPGA's Rookie of the Year award this year.

Park made no bogeys on the final day and made birdie on two of the final three holes.

“Because I am a rookie, I don't really worry about every shot. I just did every shot with confidence. My confidence made me do well this year,” explained Park.

Mirim Lee made two eagles and had her best result since she won the KIA Classic earlier in the season.

Round 3 - Broch Larsen and Martin tied at top of leaderboard

August 26, 2017 Embed from Getty Images

Nicole Broch Larsen and Mo Martin have taken the lead in Canada. Broch Larsen, who was the 2015 LET Player of the Year, is a rookie on the LPGA this year while Mo Martin had her last, and only, Tour win at the 2014 Ricoh Women's British Open.

“The first two days I had eight bogeys together, but 15 birdies. Today I had one bogey and six birdies. So today was just kind of a little bit more solid. Still a lot of good birdie opportunities and luckily less bogeys,” Broch Larsen said. “I'm playing really solid.”

Martin is pleased with her overall performance so far.

“It's just good to have things come together. I know I've been playing well. So I'm going to ride this and continue to have a good plan and execute.”

Overnight leader In Gee Chun slipped into third place one shot behind at 9-under.

Round 2 - In Gee Chun taking lead ahead of tight pack

August 25, 2017 Embed from Getty Images

In Gee Chun is taking a two shot lead into the weekend, hoping for her first victory this year after four runner-ups places.

“I (had) a lot of seconds this year, but I think they were good memories for me and a good experience,” said Chun. “I think I'm ready to win.” 

Chun made five birdies and only one bogey for a 4-under 67 while struggling with tricky greens.

“I had a hard time seeing the putting line, so I asked my caddie, and he picked good lines,” she said. “I trusted my line and make it.”

Round 1 - Marina Alex takes opening lead in Ottawa

August 24, 2017 Embed from Getty Images

Marina Alex posted a 5-under 66 early on in the day and it remained the score to beat throughout. Alex played a single bogey and six birdies and said the greens at the Ottawa Hunt & Golf Club were ‘almost just as fast as what we played at the U.S. Open.' 

“They were rolling unbelievably well. Really quick,” she said. “The nice thing is they're still a bit soft, so the shots are holding into the greens, so it kind of makes for a good combo. You can hit shots in there pretty tight, and then you have really nice pace to hold them.” 

She said her putting was responsible for her success in round 1.

“I putted unbelievably well today. I rolled it so good. So I hope I can just carry that into the next couple days and just tidy up the ball-striking a little bit,” she explained.

Alex has finished in the top-10 four times this season with her best result of T7 at the ISPS Handa Women's Australian Open in February.

Jutanugarn healthy and ready to defend #CPWO win

Ariya Jutanugarn has won the last two times she’s stepped onto Canadian soil. This week, she’s hoping to make it three-for-three at Ottawa Hunt and Golf Club.

Last year, Jutanugarn capped her five-win season with a four-stroke win at the 2016 CP Women’s Open at Priddis Greens Golf and Country Club in Calgary, Alberta. And in June 2017, she won the Manulife LPGA Classic in Hamilton, Ontario, draining a 25-foot birdie putt on the first playoff hole to beat In Gee Chun and Lexi Thompson.

“I love everything here,” said Jutanugarn, who also had success here as an amateur, winning the 2012 Canadian Women’s Amateur Championship. “All the spectators, they’re so nice. They come support us and not only the tournament days. Even practice rounds they come out and give us full support. I feel (it’s) like my second home.”

Since Jutanugarn’s victory in June, a nagging shoulder injury dating back to 2013 has been bothering the young player from Thailand. She was forced to withdraw from one event and missed the cut at three of her last five starts. However, Jutanugarn comes into Ottawa off two weeks of rest and rehab and is ready to defend her title, saying “I’m getting better, and I work on it every day, so I feel better.”

Jutanugarn will tee off on No. 10 on Thursday at 1:42 p.m. with Angel Yin, who sank the clinching putt for the USA at last week’s Solheim Cup, and 2017 U.S. Women’s Open champion Sung Hyun Park.

Kirk returns to Ottawa, site of first LPGA win

This week marks Katherine Kirk’s first visit to the Ottawa Hunt and Golf Club since 2008, when she won the CP Women’s Open for her first LPGA victory. You might think that all the excitement would make this a can’t-forget moment. But with a sheepish grin, Kirk admits that it’s all a blur.

“I remember a little bit of Thursday’s round and a little of Sunday’s round, but Friday, Saturday, not so much,” said Kirk, who trailed Yani Tseng by six strokes going into Sunday’s final round. “If you asked me what I shot, I don’t think I could tell you actually I’d have to look it up.”

For the record, Kirk shot a final-round 69 to win by one stroke over Se Ri Pak and two strokes over Tseng. Of course, many people here at OHGC still remember the Australian for her 2008 success.

“I’ve had a few volunteers come up to me and say, hey, we met you at the volunteer tent back in ‘08 and you signed a hat for us,” said Kirk, who captured the third win of her LPGA career at July’s Thornberry Creek LPGA Classic. “Or people would come up to me, hey, hopefully you can repeat from ‘08. So obviously there are a lot of folks that have come back or either volunteered or they’re going to come out and watch the tournament this week.”

Kirk will tee off on No. 10 on Thursday at 1:20 p.m. with Paula Creamer and Inbee Park.

So Yeon Ryu nominated for Sportswoman of the Year

World No. 1 So Yeon Ryu, winner of the 2014 CP Women’s Open, has been nominated for 2017 Sportswoman of the Year by the Women’s Sports Foundation. Finalists in both individual and team sports have “distinguished themselves from the field with their amazing athletic performances” over the last year. Ryu is the reigning ANA Inspiration champion and is in the top three of numerous LPGA statistical categories: Rolex Player of the Year (first), Money List (first), top-10 finishes (first), Race to the CME Globe (second), eagles (second) and scoring average (third).

Ryu joins an illustrious list of 2017 nominees, including Olympic swimming star Katie Ledecky, Paralympic track-and-field sensation Tatyana McFadden, the WNBA’s Maya Moore and world champion bobsledder Elana Meyers Taylor.

Quotable

“In golf we’re kind of fortunate that we can do a lot of fundraising through it, and I think there is certainly that aspect of it. We know that we can raise the profile not only of golf, but also of local charities and just bring awareness to different courses and obviously children’s health. Heart health is a big one, so it’s nice to be involved with that.” - Katherine Kirk, on giving back via the game of golf

“I remember I played with my sister and I beat her, yeah, that was a really good memory for me.”
- Ariya Jutanugarn, on her best memory of the 2012 Canadian Women’s Amateur Championship

“I’ve been hearing a lot, today especially, hey, I want you to come second today behind Brooke.”
- A laughing Lydia Ko, on the support she receives from Canadian fans
