PRIDDIS, Alberta (AP) Five months after giving away a major championship with a late meltdown, Ariya Jutanugarn ran away with the Canadian Pacific Women's Open at chilly Priddis Greens for her fifth victory in 10 events.

Jutanugarn made a 12-birdie putt on the final hole for a 6-under 66 and a four-stroke victory over South Korea's Sei Young Kim. The 20-year-old Thai player won nine days after withdrawing from the Rio Olympics because of a left knee injury, a problem that almost forced her to skip the event.

"I feel like I'm going to withdraw this week because my knee hurt so bad last week," Jutanugarn said. "But when I got here on Monday and Tuesday, it's getting a lot better, and first round it's fine."
