In this week’s Stats and Stuff, Ward Clayton sums up the Safeway Classic Presented by Coca-Cola and breaks down the CN Canadian Women’s Open.


Pettersen’s streaks

Suzann Pettersen has won consecutive events, the Ladies Irish Open on the Ladies European Tour and last week’s Safeway Classic on the LPGA Tour. In each win, she finished with a 64 which included a total of 13 birdies, an eagle and no bogeys (15-under par). At the Ladies Irish Open, she set the Killeen Castle, Ireland course record with a third-round 63 on the course that will be the host site for the Solheim Cup.

Pettersen hasn’t missed a cut in 39 starts, dating back to a missed cut at the 2009 Ricoh Women’s British Open. She has also won more than $1 million in each of the last five seasons.


Pettersen’s comeback

When Suzann Pettersen rallied from nine strokes behind in the final round to win the Safeway Classic in a playoff last week, it marked the second-largest comeback in LPGA Tour history. The record comeback of 10 strokes is held by the following:

  • Mickey Wright, 1964 Tall City Open, shot final-round 62
  • Annika Sorenstam, 2001 The Office Depot Hosted by Amy Alcott, shot final-round 66
  • Louise Friberg, 2008 MasterCard Classic Honoring Alejo Peralta Presented by Nextel, shot final-round 65

All of the above ended up in a playoff except for Friberg’s victory by one stroke over Yani Tseng.
