Ryu So-yeon ends 2-year LPGA title drought in Canada

August 24, 2014

(Yonhap) — South Korean golfer Ryu So-yeon picked up her first LPGA Tour victory in two years on Sunday at the Canadian Pacific Women’s Open.

At London Hunt and Country Club in London, Ontario, Ryu shot a 3-under 69 in the final round for a four-round total of 23-under, a tournament record, to win her third title on the Tour.

Fellow South Korean Choi Na-yeon shot 67 in the final fourth round to finish two strokes behind Ryu in sole possession of second. She got within one shot at the 15th hole, when she birdied and Ryu bogeyed, but had no answer when Ryu responded with one more birdie at the 16th hole.

Park Inbee, also from South Korea, finished third at 18 under, a week after winning the LPGA Championship.
