So Yeon Ryu wins Canadian Women's Open
LONDON, Ontario (AP) So Yeon Ryu won the Canadian Women's Open on Sunday at London Hunt, breaking the tournament record at 23-under 265.
The 24-year-old Ryu closed with a 3-under 69 for a two-stroke victory over fellow South Korean player Na Yeon Choi.
Ryu opened with a course-record 63 and added rounds of 66 and 67 to take a four-stroke lead into the final day. She took a six-shot advantage to the back nine, but that dropped to a single stroke when she bogeyed the par-4 15th and Choi made a birdie.
Ryu rebounded with a birdie on the par-5 16th and matched Choi with pars on the final two holes. Choi finished with a 67.
Ryu earned $337,500 for her third career LPGA Tour title.
Inbee Park completed a South Korean sweep of the first three spots, shooting a 68 to finish at 18 under.
