Filipina Jennifer Rosales finished with a two-over-par 72 in the final round to finish tied at 62nd with Korean Sun Young Yoo and Canadian Samantha Richdale at the close of the CN Canadian Women’s Open, Sunday, won by defending champion and amateur Lydia Ko of New Zealand.
Rosales, the 2004 Chick-fil-A Charity Championship and 2005 SBS Open champion, had rounds of 73-68-75-72 for a 288 total, an eight over par performance, good for a $4,854 check.
The U.S.-based Filipina struggled with a bogey at hole no.1, then recovered with a birdie at no.2 but the next birdie she made was at hole no.14 after another bogey at the 13th.
It was not a bright moment for Rosales after an inspiring performance in the second round with a two-under-par 68 when she could not find her winning groove in the next two rounds at the Royal Mayfair Golf Club in Edmonton, Alberta Province.
The 16-year-old Ko, who for the second straight year could not claim the top prize of $300,000 because of her amateur status, won by five strokes over her closest pursuer Karine Icher of France.(pinoy edmonton news with reports from LPGA)

its members of a Club, to be known as “The Mayfair Golf & Country Club”, which Club or whose

In June of 1986 shareholders passed a resolution to change the Articles of Association so that the club would qualify as “Not for Profit” under the Income Tax Act. At the same time, a resolution was passed to eliminate all differences between share classes and prohibit the payments of dividends. Consequently, Mayfair now has authorized capital of $475,000 comprising of 475 common shares.In 1989, another renovation was approved and Les Furber of Golf Design Services was hired to complete the transformation. These renovations were complete on July 26, 1991.In 1997, Mayfair Golf & Country Club celebrated its 75th anniversary in style and held a huge gala to mark the event.In 2005 we applied for and received (in October 2005) Royal status from Queen Elizabeth which resulted in a name change. The club was officially renamed Royal Mayfair Golf Club and we re-designed the Club Crest in 2007 to reflect the new name.In 2007 a new LREP plan was implemented under the leadership of Ted Locke, golf course architect. Ted’s directives are to improve course playability, replacement of infrastructure and design modifications; changes to take place over 10 year period starting in September of 2010.
