MONTREAL: American Brittany Lincicome fired a two-under-par 70 to win the LPGA Canadian Women's Open by one stroke, capturing her second victory of the year and the fifth of her career. Lincicome finished 72 holes at Hillsdale Country Club on 13-under-par 275 to edge compatriots Stacy Lewis and Michelle Wie, the defending champion, with two more Americans, Angela Stanford and Cristie Kerr, sharing fourth on 277. Since joining the tour in 2005, Lincicome had never won more than one title in a season, but has already doubled up this year, having also won the ShopRite LPGA Classic in June. "I'm growing as a golfer, I guess," said Lincicome.
