Suzann Pettersen going winless since her breakthrough season in 2007 nails down a solid 5 stroke victory to WIN the Canadian Open. “I’ve been playing very good since 2007,” said the six-time LPGA Tour winner who has carded 19 top-10 finishes, including six runner-up finishes since the end of 2007, when she won five times. “Gave myself a lot of chances to win tournaments, and like I’ve been saying, if you put yourself in position often enough, you’ll figure out how to close the deal.” Suzann’s win at the CN Canadian Open has lifted her to 2nd in the Rolex Rankings of women’s golf!!!
Leander Paes in excruciating elbow pain from his Mixed doubles final the day before, found a way with partner Lukas Dlouhy to WIN the US Open Mens Doubles Championship. For Paes it is his fifth men’s doubles Grand Slam crown, 41st overall and second grandslam title of the year!
Leander and Suzann have become good friends over the past two years. Earlier this summer Leander made the trip down to the Women’s US Open golf to watch Suzann’s 3rd round while Suzann flew straight from her victory in Canada last week to watch Leander’s quarter-final match in New York.
