Monet Chun captures Canadian women’s amateur golf championship.
KITCHENER, Ont. — Monet Chun of Richmond, Hill, Ont., fired an even-par 73 on Friday to capture the Canadian women’s amateur golf championship.
Chun finished with 4-under, 287 total for a two-stroke win over Alissa Xu, also of Richmond Hill. Xu carded a final-round 4-under 69.
With the win, Chun, 21, earned an exemption into the U.S. women’s amateur championship event (Aug. 8-14) as well as the CP Women’s Open in Ottawa (Aug. 22-28).
“I was coming into this week just trying to put together a couple of good rounds, but I’m happy that it worked out,” said Chun. “Coming into the stretch was a little bit stressful just because it was getting pretty close there, but I didn’t really change too much in my game.”
