Last year at this time we followed the progress of Abbotsford, B.C's own James Lepp as he swung, shot and sauced his way into the final twosome on the Big Break Greenbrier only to lose in a heartbreaker at the end. 

Well....he's baaaaack!

And breaking glass at the speed of sound once again.

Canadian Senior Ladies 'Invade' Ireland

Last Updated on Tuesday, 01 October 2013 23:43 Tuesday, 01 October 2013 22:32

Over the last few years a dedicated and very talented group of women have represented Canada in a way we can all be proud of both with their excellent play and the manner in which they have carried themselves while wearing the Maple Leaf abroad. A fairly regular member of this most worthy contingent has also taken the time to share some of her and her countrymates' experiences as they competed in the Irish and British Senior Women's Championships. They may have also taken in the odd historic site and partaken of a pint or two along the way. They are Canadian after all. - ed.

It’s no accident that Royal Mayfair got the 2013 CN Canadian Women’s Open.
 
The club takes pride in its tournament-quality course and shoveled upwards of $2.5 million into renovating the course. 
 
In fact, their superintendent, Wade Peckham, just received the 2013 Canadian Golf Superintendents Association National Tournament Award.

If they played the Solheim Cup this week in Edmonton, it’s a pretty sure bet that the Europeans would win again.
 
Swede Caroline Hedwall, 5-0 in Colorado last week, leads the CN Canadian Women’s Open after a third-round 64 vaulted her to (-10) and alone atop the leaderboard.
 
Europe’s spiritual on-course leader, Norway’s Suzann Pettersen, is tied for second with defending champion Lydia Ko, at (-9) and only one stroke back, but who wants to talk about the 65 Pettersen shot beside Hedwall?

If Canada had a temperate climate, then perhaps Kiwi Lydia Ko would be a Canuck.
 
Ko and her family emigrated from South Korea and narrowed their final three down to Canada, Australia and New Zealand.
 
Canada got kiboshed because of the cold winters and Australia wasn’t prepared to open the doors as wide as New Zealand, so the endearing Kiwi accent that Ko that sports is evidence that New Zealand may have a superstar in their midst.
