Richdale and Jessica Shepley of Owen Sound, Ontario were the two Canadians in the field to make the cut. Richdale finished in a tie for 62nd at eight over par, while Shepley finished in 72nd at +15.
Richdale, who now lives in Kelowna, British Columbia, shot back-to-back rounds of even par 70 on Thursday and Friday to qualify for weekend play, before struggling the last two days with scores of 75 and 73.
The biggest story of the Canadian Open however was the play of New Zealand amateur Lydia Ko who won the Canadian Open for the second consecutive year. Ko defeated Karine Icher of France by five strokes after shooting a -15 over the four days. However even though Ko was the class of the field, because she is an amateur, she does not receive the $300,000 pay cheque. That money goes to Icher.
