Canada (598), Mexico (603), Colombia (614) and Argentina (619) rounded out the top five teams. The USA has won three consecutive women’s championships (2007, 2010, 2013).

 

In the overall standings, both the U.S. and Mexico came on strong in the final round but Canada came away with a one stroke victory over Mexico and two strokes over the United States. Canada totaled a four-day ledger of 1,177, while Mexico (1178), United States (1179), Colombia (1203), Argentina (1203) and Trinidad and Tobago (1250) rounded out the field.
