Kiwi teen Ko wins second straight LPGA Canadian Open
Lydia Ko of New Zealand hits her second shot on the fifth hole during the final round of the CN Canadian Women's Open at Royal Mayfair Golf Club on August 25, 2013 in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.
Ko, whose triumph in Vancouver last year at the age of 15 years and four months made her the youngest LPGA title winner in history, backed up that historic victory with a five-stroke victory over France's Karine Icher.
Ko carded a final-round six-under 64 at Royal Mayfair Golf Club for a 15-under total of 265.
The bespectacled teen curled in a birdie putt at 18 -- her seventh birdie of the day -- lifting her arms in triumph as it dropped.
Icher, one of the bevy of Europeans playing this week in the wake of their Solheim Cup triumph over the United States in Colorado, carded a 67 for 270.
Sweden's Caroline Hedwall, the first player to go 5-0 in the Solheim Cup, had started the day with a one-stroke lead. She carded a 71 to share third on 271 alongside American Brittany Lincicome, who shot 69.
Ko's fourth victory in a professional tournament -- she also won the New Zealand Women's Open in February -- is bound to renew the question of when the 16-year-old phenom will turn professional.
