LAKE MARY, Fla. – Canada’s streak of success on the National Women’s Golf Association (NWGA) Tour continued on Thursday with Calgary native Jennifer Ha securing her first professional victory at the Timacuan Golf Club.

The 22-year-old Kent State alumna fired three birdies on the day to card a final-round 70 (-2), edging out runner-up Maria McBride of Sweden by one-stroke to seal the victory.

Ha’s two eagles led the way at Timacuan, boosting her to a 4-under par (72-72-70) finish overall. With the win, the Team Canada graduate takes home $2,500 (USD).

Her win follows a pair of victories from fellow Canuck Augusta James of Bath, Ont., who recorded wins in both March and February.

Canada’s Anna Young of Saskatoon was also in action in Lake Mary, closing at 9-over par (71-80-74) to finish T13.
