Jin cruised to victory in the Canadian Womens Open with a final bogey free round -8 under par 64, giving her a five shot winning margin at -26 under par. Jin has not made a bogey on the LPGA in her last 106 holes. She became the first player since Inbee Park in 2015 to win a 72-hole tournament without a bogey, even though she had to take a drop for an unplayable lie on the par five 9th, she got up and down for par;
“It was huge par I think.”
Nicole Broch Larsen, Denmark, took second place at -21 under with a last round -3 under 69;
“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.”
Defending Champion Brooke Henderson, Canada, -3 under 69 today, and Lizette Salas, USA, with her -8 under 64, tied in third place with -19 under totals.
Brooke spoke about the great play from her opponents
“I feel like I made a lot of birdies and hopefully made it pretty exciting for them.”
“T-3, I couldn’t really ask for anything more. It would’ve been very difficult to catch Jin Young today. She shot like a million under.”
“Great champion. I shot three under in the final round and didn’t get a sniff. Shows how great they were playing.”
