Holding a five-stroke lead heading into the final round, the pair representing Uncle Sam's country took nine strokes off par and shot 61. Kupcho and Salas teamed up for nine birdies and bogey-free, finishing the competition at -26.

The low scores were in the spotlight on Saturday, so much so that the Mexican Maria Fassi and the American Stacy Lewis handed over a card of 59 (-11) to jump from eighth to third place, at -20.

Their Herculean effort, however, was not enough to snatch second place from Finland's Matilda Castren and Malaysia's Kelly Tan (-21). They notably managed five consecutive birdies between the 10th and 14th pennants to defend the second step of the podium.

The day also went well for Canadian Alena Sharp and her Australian teammate Sarah Kemp. After a difficult third round (72), they managed to break into the top 10 by subtracting eight strokes from par.

Quebecer Maude-Aimée Leblanc improved her game by virtue of a round of 63 (-7) with American Sarah Schmelzel, finishing tied for 22nd at -13.

The only other representative of the maple leaf, Maddie Szeryk, had to settle for the 36th echelon with her American partner Kristy McPherson (-6).
