The pair will be joined by amateur Elizabeth Tong of Thornhill, Ont., who finished third after a 1-under 71.

Emma de Groot of Sydney, Australia grabbed the final spot, winning a three-for-one sudden death playoff over Carmen Bandea of Atlanta, GA and Hannah Hellyer of Quinte West, Ont. The trio all finished regulation play tied for fourth at even-par 72.
