Edmonton, AB (Sports Network) - Another year, another victory at the Canadian Women's Open for amateur phenom Lydia Ko.
Ko fired a 6-under-par 64 on Sunday and cruised to a 5-stroke victory at Royal Mayfair Golf Club, becoming the first player in almost two years to successfully defend her title on the LPGA Tour.
When Ko titled here in 2012, she became the youngest winner in LPGA Tour history at 15 years old. Now 16, she once again dominated in Canada, finishing 72 holes at 15-under-par 265.
Karine Icher carded a 67 to end in a distant second at 10-under 270, while overnight leader Caroline Hedwall and Brittany Lincicome shot 71 and 69, respectively, to share third at minus-9.
