Christi Cano wins Texas Women's Open
Christi Cano of San Antonio shot an even-par 71 Thursday to win the Texas Women's Open by four strokes over amateur Haley Mills at Old American Golf Club in The Colony.
Cano had three birdies and three bogeys during Thursday's round to finish the two-day, 36-hole event at 3-under 139. She earned $2,500 for her first professional victory.
“I was able to stay patient and my caddie was able to help me stay in the game and move past any bad shots I had. I just trusted the clubs I chose, and it worked," Cano said. "The course was in excellent shape. ... We were very fortunate to play on this course.”
Mills, from Tyler, captured the low amateur award with a final round score of 4-over par 75 and 1-over par 143 tournament total.
Dallas' Allison Micheletti tied for third at 4-over.
