FOUR EARN SPOTS INTO 2017 CP WOMEN’S OPEN VIA MONDAY QUALIFYING
Golf Canada – Canadian Hannah Hellyer earns co-medallist honours to earn spot in first LPGA Tour event –
– Fourteen Canadians to compete at 2017 CP Women’s Open –
OTTAWA – Thirty-one players competed for four spots in the 2017 CP Women’s Open at Monday’s final qualifying event at Camelot Golf and Country Club.
Stirling, Ont., native Hannah Hellyer fired a 3-under-par 69 to share medallist honours with Madeline Sheils of Boise, Idaho, each earning a qualifying spot into Canada’s National Open Championship.
“My putting was really on point today,” said Hellyer. “It’s a dream come true to play in the CP Women’s Open and get to play against the world’s best.”
Hellyer – an assistant professional at St. Georges Golf and Country Club in Toronto – will be making her LPGA debut at the CP Women’s Open. She fell just short of Monday qualifying for the 2014 CP Women’s Open, losing a three-way playoff for the final qualifying position.
Sheils has played in nine events on the LPGA Tour this year. Her best result was a T35 finish at the Marathon Classic Presented by Owens Corning and O-I.
South Korea’s Ming-G Kim carded a 2-under par 70 to tie for third with Alison Walshe of Palm Beach, Fla.
Kim has played in five LPGA events in 2017 and Walshe has played in three.
Hellyer will be the 14th Canadian in the field at the CP Women’s Open. All are trying to become the first Canadian to win an LPGA Tour event on Canadian soil since Canadian Golf Hall of Fame honoured member Jocelyne Bourassa won La Canadienne in 1973.
