Jin Young Ko wins by five shots

Round 1, Round 2, Round 3


Jin Young Ko finished the tournament at 26-under 262, five shots better than Nicole Broch Larsen and seven better than Brooke Henderson and American Lizette Salas, who also shot a course-record 8-under 64.

“We’re both out there to do our job, but we respect each other a lot,” Henderson said. “If I couldn’t win, I’m happy she did.

“You can’t ask for a better person or a better golfer to win this championship.”

It was Ko’s fourth win of 2019. She became the first LPGA player to play a bogey-free, four-round tournament since fellow South Korean Inbee Park did it at the 2015 HSBC Women’s World Champions.

“She’s world No. 1 for a reason,” Henderson said. “She’s had an unreal season. I don’t even know, is it four wins now? Four wins on one of the toughest tours there is.

“There is so much talent out here. To get one win is hard, to get four is really cool.”

The final round of the CP Women’s Open was broken up into trios, with groups teeing off at the first and 10th tees to ensure it didn’t run up against the finale of the PGA Tour’s FedEx Cup at East Lake in Atlanta.

Although all three players in the final group had two birdies on the front nine, it was a saved par that Ko made on the ninth hole that tilted the balance in her favor.

Her approach shot went wide right, over the spectator-filled cart path and into a thickly wooded area. Despite almost losing the ball in the brush, Ko chipped it to within 4 feet of the pin, avoiding bogey.

It seemed to energize her, as she made six more birdies on the back nine to clinch the title.

“When she made that up and down, I guess that was kind of it,” Broch Larsen said. “And then she made birdie, birdie and then, I mean, that wasn’t the end because I was still in it but I was a couple behind with few to go.”

For the second time in three years Broch Larsen held at least a share of the third-round lead at the CP Women’s Open. On Sunday in Ontario, Broch Larsen posted a career-best runner-up finish, improving on her previous career-best T3 finish at the 2017 CP Women’s Open.

“Obviously I just like it,” Broch Larsen said of playing in Canada. “I feel like both the course in Ottawa and this week is suiting my game really well. I just seem to enjoy it here with all the people. I was a little nervous about playing with Brooke and her million fans today, but we got through it. I just enjoyed it out there.”

When Sunday’s final group teed off, throngs of fans lined the entire hole from tee to green. Leaders Ko and Broch Larsen received polite applause, but the crowds went wild for Canada’s favorite daughter, Brooke Henderson . While the Ontario native was not quite able to successfully defend her 2018 CP Women’s Open title, she has plenty of positive takeaways from her third-place finish.

“It was a really fun week. I feel like I handled it really well,” said Henderson, who shot a final-round 69 to earn the Sandra Post Medal awarded to the tournament’s Low Canadian competitor. “There were a lot of extra things I had to do, but overall it was really fun. Just to be able to play well in front of all these people, and, you know hopefully, make their weekend a little bit better, that’s all I really want.”



LEADERS Top 10 competition

The LEADERS Top 10 competition awards a $100,000 bonus to the LPGA player with the most top-10 finishes through the completion of the event held immediately prior to the CME Group Tour Championship. In the event of a tie in total top-10 finishes, the award will go to the player with the most official wins, followed by most second-place finishes, third-place finishes, etc., until the tie is broken.

After her win at the CP Women’s Open, Jin Young Ko took the solo lead with 10 top-10 finishes. Brooke Henderson , Ariya Jutanugarn , Hyo Joo Kim and Nelly Korda are tied for ninth with nine top-10 finishes.
