Quick round up of women's golf from around the world.
LPGA- CP Women's Open (Canada)
World number One Jin Young Ko cruised to a 5 stroke victory at the Canadian Open seeing off Nicole Broch Larsen who was her nearest challenger.
This was Ko's 4th win of the year after winning 2 majors and 2 of her last 3 starts. Another incredible feat for Ko was the fact she became the first player since 2015 to win a tournament without a bogey. Ko, earned $337,500 of the $2.25 million purse with the win. Ko, hit just over 90% of GIR this week an incredible stat.
Home favorite and defending champion Brooke Henderson who was in the last group with Ko walked to the 18th green together to be greeted by the cheering Canadian fans, afterwards Henderson said "She's world No. 1 for a reason. She's had an unreal season. I don't even know, is it four wins now? Four wins on one of the toughest tours there is. There is so much talent out here. To get one win is hard, to get four is really cool." Henderson, finished tied 3rd on -19.
Lizette Salas continued her good form from the British Open and produced another strong last round with a closing 64, she must be one to watch heading into the next few weeks, she looks capable of shooting very low in any of her rounds and defiantly someone who could lead Team USA at the Solheim Cup.
Carlota Ciganda continues her good form and picked up her 8th top 10 of the season!
How did our predictions do
Brooke Henderson: 3rd
Lizette Salas: 3rd
Nelly Korda: 20th
Moriya Jutanugarn: MC
LET- Tipsport Czech Ladies Open (Czech Republic)
Carly Booth was really struggling with her game for the majority of last year, fast forward 12 months and the Scot has just won her first LET event for 7 years.
Carly, has been playing really well of late and this win is fully deserved. This is Carly's 3rd LET title and moves her up to 7th position on the Order of Merit for 2019.
Booth, carded rounds of 68, 69 and 70 for a 54-hole total of 207, nine-under-par. She finished one stroke ahead of Finland’s Sanna Nuutinen, France’s Anais Meysonnier and English due Charlotte Thompson and Hayley Davis.
Booth, birdied 2 of her last 3 holes to clinch the victory and admitted she was not quite sure of the situation on the course, "It was probably just as well I didn’t know what the situation was.I’m a little bit flabbergasted by the whole day. I played good golf and I really had to dig deep in the final round. I’m overwhelmed with happiness,It’s been seven years, so it’s a bit of a shock. Not knowing what the winning score was, I didn’t know anything about the leader board and I made a really solid par in the end.
This was a joint event with the LET Access Series and it was nice to see so many of the Access players perform well who have been performing well on the Access Series over the last few weeks. Hayley Davis and Sanna Nuutines have been going head to head all year and continued their good form here.They are both well clear of 3rd place on the Access Series Order of Merit. Scottish player Laura Murray also continued strong 2019 on the Access Series and had a good finish here this week, she moves up to 13th place.

Carly Booth: Winner
Hayley Davis: 2nd
Olivia Cowan: 6th
Annabel Dimmock: Withdrawn
