Lydia Ko Ready To Defend Title At 2013 CN Canadian Women’s Open

In 2012, Lydia Ko became the youngest player to ever win a professional golf tournament when she triumphed at the CN Canadian Women’s Open. She won that title playing as an amateur, so she couldn’t collect the $300,000 winner’s share. That share went to second place finisher, Inbee Park. The record of being the youngest ever winner of a professional event has since been broken, but Lydia remains the youngest ever winner of an LPGA event. Last year, she won the CN Canadian Women’s Open at the Vancouver Country Club in Coquitlam, British Columbia. This year, she will try to conquer Edmonton, Alberta’s Royal Mayfair Golf Club.

  1. Sorry I have not been around. Still drained from the Solheim. Plenty to consider there. Lydia is defending and will play the first two rounds with Charley Hull (!!) and a wonderful young Canadian player, Jennifer Kirby.

    • It’s getting younger and younger out there on tour. I was hoping for a Team USA win, but at least Solheim kind of gave me a women’s golf shot in the arm. I was drifting towards making this a 90% tennis blog. Not only do I need to get back to more LPGA post, I haven’t done a JLPGA in forever!

  2. Did you see that a 10 YEAR OLD shot 78-70 in the first few days medal part of the US Amateur. Improve and shoot 70 against teens and young adults (and a older women.) Hard to imagine.

    • Honestly, I haven’t been as close attention to golf this year (relatively speaking, of course) as I should have. But Solheim has my juice flowing again. 🙂
