    Roundup: Caroline Hedwall leads Canadian Women’s Open

    Solheim Cup star Caroline Hedwall shot a 6-under-par 64 on Saturday in the Canadian Women’s Open in Edmonton, Alberta, to take a one-stroke lead over European teammate Suzann Pettersen and defending champion Lydia Ko.

    Hedwall, winless on the LPGA Tour, was a record 5-0 last week in Colorado in Europe’s blowout victory over the United States. The Swede had a 10-under 200 total at Royal Mayfair.

    ‘‘I was a little tired on Monday, Tuesday, and also Wednesday,’’ Hedwall said. ‘‘But when the tournament starts I think last week just gave me a lot of energy and self-confidence, so I can’t feel anything.’’


    Pettersen shot a 65.

    The 16-year-old Ko had a 67. Last year in British Columbia, the New Zealand amateur became the youngest winner in LPGA Tour history at 15 years, 4 months.

    “I was overall really happy, and I was 8 under coming into the final round last year, so one shot better, which leaves me in a good place,’’ said Ko.

    Brittany Lincicome (66) and I.K. Kim (65) were two strokes back at 8 under.

    Top-ranked Inbee Park, tied for the second-round lead with Cristie Kerr, had a 74 to fall six strokes back at 4 under. Park swept the first three majors of the season and has six tour victories this year.


    Champions — John Riegger shot an 8-under 64 to open a three-stroke lead over a group of four players after the second round of the Boeing Classic in Snoqualmie, Wash.

    Riegger had an eagle for the second straight day and added seven birdies and a bogey to finish at 11 under at TPC Snoqualmie Ridge.

    Tom Lehman (67), Bernhard Langer (68), Kirk Triplett (68), and Bobby Clampett (69) were tied for second.

    European — Ricardo Gonzalez and Tommy Fleetwood shared the lead at 16 under after the third round of the Johnnie Walker Championship at Gleneagles, Scotland.

    The 352d-ranked Gonzalez had four birdies and finished with a 2-under 70. Fleetwood started birdie-eagle but also bogeyed the last for a 67.
