It may be time for the City of Coquitlam to rename itself ‘Koquitlam’ in honour of Lydia Ko.
 
For the second time since 2012, the New Zealand citizen has won the Canadian Women’s Open at the Vancouver Golf Club.
 
Add in Ko’s 2013 triumph at Royal Mayfair in Edmonton and Ko has won three of the last four Canadian Women’s Opens.
 
But it wasn’t easy for Ko, who had to survive a playoff with American Stacy Lewis, who shot a (-5) round of 67 to tie Ko at (-12) for the tournament.

By media attention, Brooke Henderson was the ‘IT’ story for Canadians all week. But by score, at least until Sunday afternoon, it was Alena Sharp who was outplaying Henderson.
 
That all changed with Henderson’s (-5) round of 67 which vaulted her up the leaderboard and justified all the media attention she received during the week. Henderson finished at (-4) 284 for the tournament.
 
“It was a really fun day out there today,” said Henderson. “I wanted to show and to give the crowd a little bit of excitement, and I think today, I did that.”

New Zealand’s Lydia Ko and Taiwan’s Candie Kung will play another 18 holes together as the final group in the final round of the CP Women’s Open.
 
But instead of Kung holding a two-stroke lead as she did heading into Round 3, the golfers are all square at (-12) 204 after a closing bogey by Ko on the 18th hole.
 
Ko has the definite advantage of winning here in 2012 and being a two-time Canadian Open winner, having defended her crown at Royal Mayfair in 2013.

By all rights, Alena Sharp should be the Canadian story at the CP Women’s Open at the Vancouver Golf Club.
 
Sharp is currently the low Canadian, at (-2) 214 after a (-1) round of 71 which included a workmanlike two birdies and one bogey to go with 15 pars.
 
“I had a lot of good opportunities,” said Sharp of her round. “I just didn’t make putts. I found the pins were pretty tough. I was above some of them today. It was hard to stop it below. . . It was a rally good round. I played solid all day.”
 
But it’s Smiths Falls, ON’s Brooke Henderson, sitting four strokes behind Sharp, who continues to garner all the attention.
