Ko shots a 6-under 64 in her final round, while Kelowna's Samantha Richdale was the top Canadian with a final 8-over par.



Lydia Ko, the 16-year-old phenom from New Zealand, won her second-straight CN Canadian Women’s Open on Sunday, only one year after she became the youngest-ever golfer to win on the LGPA Tour at the exact same tournament.

Kelowna’s Samantha Richdale was the top Canadian, finishing 8-over par.

Ko ended her 2013 Open in Edmonton, Alta. with a final round of 64 (6-under) and a final score of 15-under.

Ko’s two Canadian Open wins are her only wins on the Tour, but she is currently the highest-rated (female) amateur golfer int he world, and is now seventh in the official Women’s World Golf Rankings.

This week’s tournament was only her 22nd career professional event.
