  • Print

LONDON, Ont. - Three of the LPGA's top five golfers are joining the field for the US$2.25-million Canadian Pacific Women's Open.

The tournament announced Wednesday that top ranked Stacy Lewis, No. 3 Inbee Park and No. 5 Lexi Thompson as well as No. 12 Paula Creamer are joining the field for the tournament held Aug. 18-24 at London Hunt and Country Club.

The players join a field including two-time defending champion and world No. 2 Lydia Ko as well as 2014 U.S. Women's Open champion and 2010 Canadian Women's Open winner Michelle Wie.

Canadian Brooke Henderson of Smiths Falls, Ont., the No. 2. ranked amateur in the world, headlines a list of Canadians in the tournament. Henderson earned an exemption from her Canadian Women's Tour Ontario victory earlier this summer.

Current LPGA Tour members Lorie Kane of Charlottetown, Rebecca Lee-Bentham of Toronto, Alena Sharp of Hamilton, Jennifer Kirby of Paris, Ont., and Sue Kim of Langley, B.C., are also confirmed. Additional Canadian and international exemptions will be announced at a later date.
