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.

As the Number 1-ranked female golfer in the world, it’s no surprise that South Korea’s Inbee Park is tied for the lead at the 2013 CN Canadian Women’s Open at Royal Mayfair in Edmonton.
 
Park shot 65 to go with her opening round 67 to sit at  (-8) for the tournament.
 
Park is tied with American veteran Cristie Kerr, who shot her second consecutive round of 66 and is no stranger to the victory podium, having come from eight strokes back in 2006, the inaugural year of CN’s sponsorship of the event, to win the Canadian Open.

It was déjà vu all over again for the Pride of PEI, Lorie Kane. 
 
One year ago, at the Vancouver Golf Club, all Kane needed on her final hole was a bogey to make the cut.
 
Unfortunately, Kane made double and broke down after only four questions in the media scrum afterwards.
 
It was almost as agonizing at the Royal Mayfair Golf Club in Edmonton on Friday afternoon, as Kane needed par to play on the weekend, only to make bogey and miss by one.
