Twelve-year-old Lucy Lin of Vancouver earned one of four spots into this week’s 2022 CP Women’s Open with a steady round of golf in Monday’s final qualifier at the Marshes Golf Club.
Lin, the youngest player to ever qualify for the prestigious Canadian tournament, shot a 2-over-par 74, two shots behind top qualifiers Michelle Liu of Vancouver and Gianna Clemente of Estero, Fla. Vanessa Zhang of Vancouver was one shot back.
The final qualifier consisted of 22 golfers playing one round with the four best scores advancing to Thursday’s tournament. Play was suspended several times Monday due to afternoon inclement weather.

The 13-time LPGA Tour winner Ko leads a stellar field that includes 82 of the top-100 players on the CME Globe standings, including 18 of the top-20. The field will also include 18 Canadians.
