Megan Khang is the CPKC Women’s Open champion.

The American beat South Korea’s Jin Young Ko in a one-hole playoff on Sunday.

It’s the first LPGA Tour title of Khang’s career.

Khang had a three-shot lead heading into the fourth round but had a 2-over day as Ko shot 3 under to force the playoff.

Ko double bogeyed the par-4 18th hole and Khang made par to win the only LPGA Tour event in Canada.

Brooke Henderson of Smiths Falls, Ont., was the low Canadian, tying for 13th.
