America’s Megan Khang won her first LPGA title after she birdied the 18th hole to force a play-off at the Canadian Women’s Open on Monday, 28 August 2023.

South Korea’s world number four Ko Jin-young had edged in front with a three-under 69 to finish on nine under.

The 25-year-old Khang started the final round with a three-shot lead but fell behind as she dropped five shots.

But Khang regrouped on the last to tie with Ko, with par enough for her to clinch victory on the first extra hole.

Speaking after her victory, Khang said: “It’s tough to win out here. Eight years is a long time. It’s great to get the first.

“I know my game is trendy and it has matured over the past few years so I was more like, ‘It’s going to happen. It’s just a matter of time.

“It just happened to be the CPKC Open. This course suits my game very well and I’m just pumped to finally get the first one,” she concluded.
