There was a trio of Korean conquerors at the Canadian Pacific Women’s Open at the London Hunt and Country Club in Ontario.
So Yeon Ryu won the CP Women’s Open title with a final round -3 under 69, which gave her a winning total of -23 under par for the tournament at the London Hunt and Country Club in Ontario, Canada.
So Yeon was very happy to receive a champagne showering in celebration of her win, especially as it was Inbee Park doing the spraying;
“I’ve been waiting so long for the champagne, I was ready to get champagned. I put champagne on Inbee maybe more than five times, but finally she gave it to me. So it feels great.”
“It could sound like cocky, but after I made a birdie at the 9th hole I was sure I could win. But actually, you know what, Na Yeon almost chased me down, so I was pretty nervous at that moment.”
“After I signed my card, Na Yeon asked me, why don’t we go to have dinner every Wednesday night. So I think that’s a good tradition, so I think we’re going to stick with that.”
Na Yeon Choi finished in second place at -21 under par, two shots off the pace after a valiant effort to catch her friend So Yeon. She carded a final round -5 under par 67, and fell just short of the target. She was obviously disappointed that her best ever score of -21 under was not good enough to win;
“A lot of people talk about even me and So Yeon can’t have win, it’s been a long time, but somebody has to do it first, and then maybe next time I can have it.”
World number two Inbee Park came through to capture third place, a last round -4 under par added up to -18 under par for the tournament.
Inbee was happy to see her friends play well;
“I’m really happy to see them playing really good, finally breaking through. They haven’t won for a couple years, and I really feel for them.”
“They were having a very tough time a couple years when they couldn’t win for a couple years, so I really was rooting for them to finally break through because they’re such great players.”
Once they start winning, they can be up on the top very quickly. Yeah, they have definitely good potential, so yeah, I’m sure even if one of them finishes first and one of them finishes second, that’s still going to give them so much confidence playing the rest of the season. Yeah, I think you’ll see their names up there more often.”
