LPGA CN Canadian Women’s Open
Although this was an event won by New Zealander, 15 year old amateur Lydia Ko, who along the way becomes the youngest player ever to win an LPGA event, it was the Vancouver Golf Club and Canadian Jessica Shepley who did Canada proud. Although there were no exact spectator numbers, the event was spectacularly attended and the 1,000 volunteers are to be commended! We couldn’t attend as were are out of town, but it looked fantastic on TV. Shepley was the lone Canadian of the 20 in the field to make the cut finishing in a tie for 41st position.
Canadian Tour Championship
What a way to finish for rookie professional Canadian Eugene Wong to win his first Canadian Tour event, by hole-ing out for eagle on the final hole. The hole-out allowed Wong to close with a 4 under par 67 and a tournament total of 270, 14 under par and a one shot victory. A number of other Canadians had good finishes as well. The Vancouver Open is set to start next week. Wong and a number of other players are confirmed for that event including Cory Refrew, Matt Daniel and Nick Taylor to name a few who had strong Canadian Tour Championship showings.
